Hot tub manufacturer making SPATEX debut

Wellis will be using its debut appearance at the 20th anniversary edition of SPATEX to highlight its growing presence in the British market that is being boosted with the launch of new swim spa designs.

The Hungary-based manufacturer has confirmed that stand space was booked just before the event’s ‘sold out’ signs went up and is making its inaugural appearance at SPATEX on Stand B2 after conducting a major European exhibition tour, including two 2015 appearances at the UK Pool & Spa Expo, to promote unique features in its latest product offerings.

During SPATEX, running from Sunday, January 31, to Tuesday, February 2, in the Jaguar Exhibition Halls 1 and 2 of the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, Wellis representatives will be providing details of the manufacturer’s ‘Made in Europe’ credentials and fledgling distribution partnership in the UK with Rob Carlin and his Chesterfield-based Superior Spas outfit, which will be occupying Stand B4 during the distributor’s debut appearance to promote the latest hot tub and swim spa models at the anniversary exhibition.

“We really want to enhance the presence of this brand and believe this will be an ideal opportunity ahead of the new season,” said Rob Carlin, who is among the Talking Heads in the latest edition of Hot Tub Retailer magazine.

“Retailers now want to be able to provide peace of mind to their prospective customers that the models that they are providing are from a reputable source. This is certainly the case with Wellis models.”

They are part of the manufacturer’s flourishing stable of models that are complemented with accessories including the Wellis Spa Umbrella, Wellis Towel Bar, Wellis Spaziano Tray, and WELLISTEP.

“Wellis is really going places and really impressed us with how it enhanced our Superior Spas range of models during 2015,” divulged Rob. “This new relationship has enabled us to attract leading showroom retailers that want an additional hot tub or hot tub range for their dealerships.

“I feel very fortunate to have become the exclusive UK distributor for this brand at a time when the market is flourishing. It’s a great time to be a hot tub or swim spa retailer because there is high demand from consumers who want products of all sizes and price points.

 “From our own experience in 2015 the entry-level models have been performing as well as the higher-end products. So it shows there is plenty of variety and scope of customers out there for retailers to target with their showroom promotions.”

Wellis Export Manager Pal Bihari added: “Our products are becoming more popular and we are enjoying very high growth in the market.

“We’ve now built up our stock levels to ensure our dealers in the UK and throughout the continent gain a big advantage of being able to get quick deliveries.”

Comprehensive details about the Wellis range of products and dealer opportunities will be available on Stand B2 during SPATEX and information about becoming a supplier of the Superior Spas models can be obtained from Stand B4 during the three days of the exhibition.
