It is a matter of personal importance for Kemitron, to meet the wishes and expectations of the diverse countries and cultures.

Innovation – Quality – Sustainability – Satisfaction

Our company’s philosophy is composed of four core issues, which give our thinking and acting a binding line:

1. Customer satisfaction

Our objective is to provide the “best individual all-in-one solutions” for our clients. The single components in the overall concept have to fit together precisely. Nearly 40 years of experience and a step-by-step developed and interlocking thematic field provide the best base to meet our customers’ expectations. In the interest of our discerning commercial and private customers, we consequently focus on high-grade in-house developments and comprehensive know-how.

2. Superior quality

Both we and our customers expect the highest standards in the quality of our products. To offer premium quality, one will only receive “made in Germany”-products exclusively developed in our house. Because of the broad range of our services and the associated knowledge, this concentrated through the many years of experience. And we only send out coordinated and precisely compatible products in excellent quality.

3. Sustainability

Sustainability is corporate philosophy, not a trend for us. We operate globally therefore we want to satisfy the needs of very diverse stakeholders. We understand sustainability as responsible conduct regarding society and environment. Already in the development process of new products and for all production processes we consider consciously environmental, health, and resource-conserving procedures.

4. Innovation

We place great emphasis on development and implementation of innovative solutions. The grasp at increasingly better products for our customers is the engine behind our efforts. Since the company’s existence, Kemitron relies on top-quality in-house developments, diversity, and innovation and can therefore look upon significant experience and extensive know-how. As typical Swabian self-supporter, tinkering practically runs in our blood. Pronounced delight in experimentation and our own production facilities give us the flexibility to react fast on trends and currents with products, recent developments and innovations.

Traditionally innovative

Kemitron maintained always in close contact with its customers. In this personal communication, we often hear of wishes and difficulties in the daily routine in the field of spa and wellness.

Since our top priority is customer satisfaction, we essentially try and make every effort to find the best possible solution and meet their needs. Consequently Kemitron developments were often the first of their kind on the world spa and wellness market.

Nevertheless, we are never satisfied with the level reached, but rather keep on designing new products and continuously realign and optimize them. Many of our innovations and patents have led the way and are the recognized gold standard today, others are a special advantage:

  • The automatic infusion system in saunas has become vital in the area of spa and wellness. The worldwide first of this kind is a Kemitron innovation.
  • In the beginning of the 90ies Kemitron developed the internationally first experience shower. It is the goal of the experience showers to affect and activate different senses at the same time.
  • The fragrance dosing pumps for steam baths, experience showers and whirlpools are a development of Kemitron and were the first on the world market.
  • It is a known fact, that sole inhalation affects the respiratory tract positively. It also firms tissues, and – together with UV light – it is favorable for the skin. Kemitron developed the first sole steam system that supplies the healthy sole-fog at the touch of a button.
  • To combine the steam with a shower in a traditional Rhassoul. Kemitron where the first on the world market to offer this combination in one Rhassoul system.
  • Kemitron were internationally the first to bring an automatic Hamam soap system onto the spa and wellness market.
