In the last quarter of 2021, Wellis adopted the key marketing slogan ‘The Sense Of Nature’ to reflect the company’s commitment to sustainability. True to their word, Wellis has gradually switched to the use and recycling of environmentally friendly materials. For recycling, Wellis believe it is essential to selectively collect and recycle as much industrial waste and used equipment and components, such as water purifiers.
Wellis is not deterred from technological change for more efficient and sustainable recycling, which is why the production of polyurethane foam has replaced glass fibre processes in the production of some products. Developments that reduce energy demand are already essential when designing products. This should apply in the same way during the manufacturing process as during use.
Wellis opts for more fuel-efficient pumps and is constantly improving the thermal insulation of its products, which can be improved to achieve the same or higher customer experience with significantly lower heating output. The company’s development team aims to produce the world’s most energy-efficient spa, which will be able to halve current energy consumption.
“It may seem like a small thing but reducing the use of materials in acrylic bathtubs can lead to significant savings in bulk and in the long run,” explains Wellis’ Réka Ráthgéber. “We use 10-12% less plastic per year than our competitors due to our technical innovations,” Reka continues. “We also reuse the packaging from suppliers and the reuse of pallets that are no longer used instead of being scrapped by regenerating them as energy produced in incinerators.”
