Resorts & Retreats Awards 2020

Page 24 LUX 2020 Resorts and Retreats Awards In recent years, the global spa and wellness market has grown tremendously and due to different cultural meteorological requirements, it has become a matter of personal importance for Kemitron to meet the expectations of diverse countries and cultures. To begin, Stephan provides a brief overview of the firm and offers more insight into the type of clients with whom it typically works with. “Kemitron is a worldwide operating and family- owned company with a tradition of over 40 years, manufacturing and distributing products for the upscale sauna, spa and wellness market. This includes hotels, cruise ships, municipal and private swimming pools, saunas, small and large spa and wellness facilities, franchise or independent spa and wellness centres, as well as fitness centres with a spa area.” As a company that combines all the steps from development to delivery under one roof, decades of experience and know-how has accumulated in providing Kemitron with the best possible foundation to create the highest quality products. Moreover, as Stephan goes on to explain, its four divisions have also enabled the company to distinguish themselves from some of its closest competitors. “Technico products do not impose any structural constraints. They can be adapted to almost every surrounding and room situation. Naturally, this allows us to react flexibly to building, cultural and climatic peculiarities when building or redesigning sauna, wellness, and spa facilities. With Technico, designers and architects can plan freely according to their project requirements. Aromee fragrances for the upscale private and commercial sauna, spa and wellness areas are tailored for applications in steam baths, saunas, whirlpools, hot tubs, and experience showers. Pure disinfectant and Established in 1977, Kemitron is a leading manufacturing and distribution company of upscale sauna, spa, and wellness products. Following the firm’s well-deserved success in the Resorts and Retreats Awards 2020, we caught up with Stephan Mayer-Klenk to find out more. Kemitron Best Spa & Wellness Technology Manufacturer - Western Europe cleaners are developed based on decades of experience and sound knowledge in the field of spa and pool disinfection and cleaning. These products meet the various cleaning and disinfection requirements of commercial, municipal, and private pools, saunas, steam baths, whirlpools, and hot tubs professionally and effectively. After a sauna, steam bath or hammam, the skin is extremely receptive so our creams, massaging soaps and peelings can work on balancing stressed or irritated skin.” Since the beginning, Kemitron has always maintained its high standards and in addition to its philosophy, these two factors in particular have played a key role behind the success of the firm as Stephan explains further. “Both ourselves and our customers have the highest demands on quality and durability. Consequently, we only use first-class materials and raw materials for our products, which are thoroughly tested before they leave our premises. Naturally, we believe that good quality pays off and in the long-term it saves you money. So, through our commitment and innovations, we are dedicated towards the end result. All our products are designed, developed, and produced in-house, and by training and educating our employees ourselves, we ensure they are familiar with the products down to the finest detail. No client will ever receive ready-made all-inclusive solutions, instead we adapt our proposals to their individual circumstances and develop optimisation possibilities step by step.” Recruiting new team members isn’t something Kemitron are used to with its very low staff turnover. However, as Stephan goes on to explain the support is always there to make new team members feel at home. “Since our employees are held in high esteem, almost all team members have been with the company for a long period of time. New colleagues however are carefully trained and always have a contact person to support them.” Despite the outbreak of COVID-19 this year, the firm has prospered with many clients demanding a spa or wellness facility as Stephan points out. “With the increasing pressure and stress in most people’s everyday lives, many people are longing for a rest and time out which a spa or wellness facility can provide. Currently, we are seeing a strong interest in hydrothermal applications and once the pandemic is over, we expect the entire market to pick up significantly.” Finally, Stephan comments on some of the firm’s future plans as we look ahead to 2021 and beyond. “Currently, we are using our time to push ahead with the modernisation of our fragrance dosing pumps. The first new pumps in the revised design are already on the market!” Company: Kemitron Contact: Stephan Mayer-Klenk Web Address: P f l ege
