Vita Spa UK has thanked its loyal band of retailers for helping to produce another year of bumper record-breaking sales to overtake the previous best achieved in 2013.
Distributor and Aqua Warehouse Managing Director Richard Hart believes that the quality of the Vita Spa brand has been instrumental in retaining longstanding dealerships that have all combined to produce back-to-back record years of achievement.
This year Richard and his dealer network in the UK have surpassed last year’s record-breaking 40 per cent increase in sales, following five consecutive years of WhatSpa? Best Buy Awards acclaim for the five-seater Elegant, pictured, coming in at 211 x 200 x 94cm with lounge seat, targeting the sub-£5,999 price bracket.
The USA manufacturer has also received its first WhatSpa? Best Buy for the six-seater Prestige, coming in at 213 x 213 x 97cm, which also incorporates a lounge seat, in the £6,000 to £7,999 price band, while another first has been the WhatSwimSpa? Best Buy Award recognition in the £15,000 to £22,499 price category, for the Vita Spa XSP. Aimed at consumers wanting a quality swim spa model under the £20,000 with ‘Lifetime Warranty’ policies on its heavy-duty steel subframe and Vita’s energy-efficient environmentally-friendly recycled insulation.
“We have had another tremendous year of sales that have helped us to surpass our 40 per cent increase that we achieved in 2013,” said Richard; “All of our dealers in the UK have performed well and we will be promoting this during our third appearance as an exhibitor at the UK Pool and Spa Expo in January.
“Thankfully we now have a loyal band of Vita Spa dealers that have really done the business this year. I don’t think it’s all about how many dealers you have but how many of them are quality retailers who are providing a pedigree service to their customers.
“That has been our aim over the years and we are now reaping the rewards for laying down a solid foundation.”
Richard will be exhibiting at the UK Pool and Spa Expo 2015 on the Vita Spa Stand 435 and the dedicated Aqua Spa Supplies Stand 433 at the NEC in Birmingham in January. Aqua Spa Supplies will also be exhibiting at SPATEX 2015 on Stand D3 in February.
