Dream Maker Spas and The Leisure Group Align

Dream Maker logoDream Maker Spas, Lake Mary, Fla., and The Leisure Group, Grimsby, Ontario and Lakeland, Fla., have formed a strategic sales and marketing alliance.

The Celebrity acrylic spa line, previously manufactured by Leisure Bay Industries, a sister division of Dream Maker, will now be produced in the same plant as The Leisure Group's Sunrise brand, under the Dream Maker name.

"We are excited on several fronts regarding this new partnership," says Dream Maker's Dave Czech.

Dream Maker has also become the exclusive representatives for The Leisure Group's Freestyle brand in the Southeastern United States.

"We couldn't be more pleased," says TLG's Jack Layfield. "The Dream Maker Team, headed by Dave, is well entrenched in the Southeast marketplace, and we are very much looking forward to contributions they will bring to our sales and marketing efforts."

"Some natural synergies already exist between our two organizations," adds Czech, 'primarily due to our close proximities and shared commercial strategies. We believe Freestyle offers the most unique combination of innovative mold designs, quality and eco friendly features of any hot tub within the marketplace."
