Klafs announces acquisition of luxury pool supplier Guncast

Klafs and Guncast deliver wellness facilities across luxury hotels, private residences, commercial spas and high-end residential developments.
Klafs, a leader in the design and installation of sauna and spa facilities, has announced its acquisition of UK-based swimming pool supplier Guncast.

The two companies' partnership began in 2016 when Guncast was selected by Klafs to supply its products to the UK market. Both organisations deliver wellness facilities across luxury hotels, private residences, commercial spas and high-end residential developments.

The relationship has since evolved to a marriage of the two wellness companies which now offer UK clients a comprehensive spa package under one roof.

Established in Germany, Klafs strives to take an innovative approach to the traditional sauna, and now offers nearly 20 designs ranging from conventional log cabins to modernist glass boxes.

Beyond this, it provides the full breadth of specialist spa facilities, including steam baths, caldariums, mud baths, hamams, tepidariums, ice lounges, ice fountains and snow cabins.

Guncast was founded in the 1970s with the ambition to perfect the art of luxury swimming pools and has since established a global portfolio.

Stefan Schöllhammer, CEO of Klafs, said: "We’re delighted to be welcoming Guncast into the family.

“Since we first partnered with Guncast in 2016, we’ve enjoyed tremendous growth in the UK, and this partnership will help us to expand even more rapidly.

“In particular, we’re seeing more and more clients wanting the complete spa experience, incorporating a pool, sauna and other treatment rooms.

“With Guncast under the Klafs umbrella, we’ll be able to provide this comprehensive package in-house, streamlining the process for clients and ensuring an exceptional final design.”

Coinciding with this announcement, Guncast is launching a new office and showroom in Cheshire in October 2021, extending their luxury wellness brand & services across the UK.

In January 2021, Klafs was acquired by independent pan-European investment company Egeria - click here to read the whole story from Spa Business.
