History of Strong
Strong Industries, Inc. opened its doors in 1994, with one employee. Today Strong Spas employs more than 200 people. Strong started out by forming/building plastic parts for a variety of industries. In 2000, we officially opened our facility in Northumberland, PA. But it wasn’t until 2004 that we produced our first roto-molded spa – and have been in the hot tub business ever since.
2008 saw a recession that hit every major hot tub OEM – except Strong Spas. We continued to flourish and grow while others were shrinking and downsizing. We enjoyed rapid growth into the European market in the early years and have had steady growth domestically – often in excess of 50% per year. Also in 2008, we began to produce acrylic hot tubs and thus were able to offer a complete line of spas.
In 2011, Wade Spicer, president of Strong Spas, was awarded the Ben Franklin Innovation Award for Entrepreneurial Achievement. This award celebrates the success and achievement of an individual who best exemplifies the quintessential entrepreneurial spirit: a combination of ingenuity, hard work, and innovation that has resulted in the creation of a successful and growing business venture.
