Kohler Completes Acquisition of KLAFS And Expands Its Luxury & Wellness Portfolio
Global kitchen and bath leader Kohler has announced the completion of its acquisition of KLAFS – a market-leading manufacturer of saunas, steam rooms, and other hydrothermal features – from EGERIA. Financial details of the transaction have not being disclosed.

Headquartered in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany, KLAFS develops, designs, manufactures, and sells innovative premium wellness products designed to enhance personal spa experiences including saunas, sanariums, infrared cabins, steam baths, pools, and related wellness equipment and accessories. In addition, the company provides design consultation and planning services, plus expert installation. KLAFS sells its products through a vast direct-to-consumer showroom network that primarily spans across Europe to both residential and commercial (including hotels, fitness centres, day spas, etc.) clients.

KLAFS employs 850 associates across locations in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, the Netherlands, Spain, Mexico and the UK and joins Kohler's Luxury & Wellness Brands group with other high-design brands including Ann Sacks, Kallista, Robern, and Kast Concrete Basins. KLAFS
CEO Phillip Rock and CFO Jens Friedrich continue in their leadership roles.

"KLAFS is an international market leader that shares our passion for innovation, design, and a relentless pursuit of providing exceptional wellness products, services, and experiences," said David Kohler, Chair and CEO of Kohler Co., who represents the fourth generation of Kohler family leadership. "We are excited to welcome the KLAFS organisation to Kohler and look forward to driving continued growth in sauna and spa solutions."

"KLAFS has demonstrated proven success with a dynamic portfolio of indoor and outdoor products and services supported by dedicated employees," said Bonnie Choruby, President of Luxury & Wellness Brands group. "We are pleased to have the KLAFS team join Kohler, and together, help propel our wellness design leadership across strategic markets."
