KLAFS CONFIRM GUNCAST MARRIAGE
KLAFS, the world-leading designers and installers of wellness facilities, has confirmed its acquisition of Guncast, one of the UK’s most prestigious swimming pool contractors.
Born from a partnership which began in 2016, when Guncast was chosen as a supplier of KLAFS products to the UK market, the relationship has since evolved to a marriage of the two leading wellness companies, now offering UK clients the comprehensive spa package under one roof.
Established in Germany in 1928, KLAFS is a pioneer of wellbeing facilities, taking an innovative approach to the traditional sauna, and now offering nearly 20 designs ranging from conventional log cabins to modernist glass boxes. KLAFS provide the full breadth of specialist wellbeing facilities, including steam baths, caldariums, mud baths, hamams, tepidariums, ice lounges, ice fountains and snow cabins.
Stefan Schöllhammer, CEO of KLAFS comments: “We are delighted to be welcoming Guncast into the KLAFS family. Since 2016, when we first partnered with Guncast as a supplier, we have enjoyed tremendous growth in the UK, and this partnership will help us to expand even more rapidly.
Jack Harding, CEO of Guncast comments: “This deal weds together two brands that share the same philosophy and DNA, delivering projects driven by luxury and quality. After five years as a KLAFS partner, this next step feels like a natural progression. We look forward to sharing our continuing success and growth together for many more decades.”
Guncast was established in the 1970s with the ambition to perfect the art of luxury swimming pools and has since been at the forefront of the revolution of the at-home wet leisure suite.
KLAFS and Guncast deliver wellness facilities across luxury hotels, private residences, commercial spas and high-end residential developments. Coinciding with this announcement, Guncast is launching a new office and showroom in Cheshire in October this year, extending their luxury wellness brand and services across the UK.
