Global kitchen and bathroom leader Kohler has entered into an agreement to acquire KLAFS – a market-leading manufacturer of saunas, steam rooms, and hydrothermal facilities.
The agreement with the Egeria Group, was signed on December 1 and is still subject to customary closing conditions. Final closing is expected in the first quarter of 2024.
A new era for KLAFS
KLAFS’s CEO Phillip Rock and CFO Jens Friedrich will continue in their leadership roles, and the company will join Kohler’s Luxury Brands division with other high-design names, including Ann Sacks, Kallista, Robern and Kast Concrete Basins.
“KLAFS is an international market leader with a stellar reputation that shares our passion for innovation and delighting customers,” said David Kohler, chair and CEO of Kohler Co.
“We look forward to welcoming the KLAFS organisation to Kohler and, together, driving continued growth in sauna and spa solutions.”
