Vortex Spas break into UK market

The largest spa and swim spa supplier in the Southern Hemisphere, Vortex Spas, is pleased'to announce that its innovative IKON spa will now be available in the UK through an'exclusive distribution agreement with Spa Solutions.

Vortex Spas is part of the integrated Vortex Leisure Group, which owns Spa World, Spa Store, Banff Spas, Arcadia Spas, Fisher Spas, Lifestyle Spas and distributes spa pools and swim spas under various brands to over 20 countries around the world.

UK-based spa specialist distributor, Spa Solutions, has built up a first-class portfolio for supplying hot tubs and spas, which combine the most advanced hot tub technology with world-class construction and outstanding service.

Vortex Leisure Group CEO Andrew Pullen says he is thrilled to partner with a company that has the same philosophies around 'innovation, workmanship and customer service' that Vortex does.

'This partnership will open exciting opportunities for UK spa retailers to enhance their offering,' he says.

Spa Solutions Managing Director Anthony Schneikert says Vortex Leisure is renowned for producing high quality spas backed up by clever design and excellent customer service.

'In addition to the new IKON spa, we'll be offering retailers a number of Vortex Spas for the first time within the mid-range price bracket that incorporate all the features of a high end produced spa.'

Andrew says the agreement with Spa Solutions comes following a hugely successful European launch of the company's ground-breaking IKON spa at last month's Piscine Global Europe trade show in Lyon.

Inspired by luxury marine and modern architecture, and a desire to innovate, the IKON spa offers a rethink of how spa technology and modern living come together for the ultimate in relaxation. Features include contoured landscape seating, a Flexiteek deck like those on super yachts, architectural cabinetry with flush, screwless surfaces and contemporary negative detailing.

Andrew says the Vortex Spas team was overwhelmed by the response to the IKON at Lyon.

'Everyone we met with was hugely excited by the state-of-the-art nature of the IKON, which will now be sold in countries including France, Spain, Italy and Sweden.'

Anthony says the IKON has a shape that is completely different to anything else available in the UK.

'We feel it'll be extremely popular as it offers an incredibly stylish design that works well with modern architecture and contemporary living. Unlike standard spas, the IKON doesn't need to be hidden in the ground. It's something people will be proud to have on display.'

For retailers interested in this innovative and high-quality product, Spa Solutions will be showcasing the IKON at the upcoming Spatex trade show at the end of January 2019 in Coventry. You can see the IKON for yourself at stand F58. The IKON will be available to retailers on special order from Spa Solutions from 28 January 2019.
