OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) - Maax Spas is a hot tub and swim spa manufacturer based in Chandler, Arizona, and add jobs in Ottumwa.

The company makes spas intended for swimming rather than the ones for sitting and they will range in size from 12 to 15 feet long.

The company’s plant manager says it plans to produce about 10 a day.

With all of that expected labor, Plant Manager Mel Messer says they are looking to hire up to 50 people to complete the job.

“We’re looking for about 15 to 20 positions initially and ultimately we’d like to be up to about 50 people total on the manufacturing floor to produce about 10 a day.”

For those looking to apply, Messer says representatives will be at Quincy Place Mall at the end of the month for a job fair.

However, if you can’t make it, he says to stop by their office in Ottumwa located at 2908 North Court Street to pick up an application.
