Sauna manufacturer, Almost Heaven Saunas, based in the Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia has been popular by American consumers for over 30 years now. This year, the company has continued to expand into international markets.

Made in USA: Almost Heaven Saunas

Our exclusive use of western Canadian red cedar, our superior craftsmanship and quality components, and the fact that we are one of the few saunas that are made in America all contribute to our popularity in foreign markets.

Almost Heaven Saunas®, world leader in barrel sauna designs, continues to expand into international markets. In the last quarter of 2012, the company displayed it’s popular Barrel Sauna line at trade shows in Dubai, Germany, and France, as well as at the annual international pool and spa show in the United States.

According to company president, Rick Mouw, “Our Cedar Saunas do exceptionally well in international markets for a variety of reasons. Our exclusive use of western Canadian red cedar, our superior craftsmanship and quality components, and the fact that we are one of the few saunas that are made in America all contribute to our popularity in foreign markets. Customers love the flexibility to install most units either for indoor or for outdoor sauna use.”

Indeed. The units with external seating and porch areas are especially in high demand as outdoor saunas. The company already has a solid presence in both the UK and Europe, and while sales in these markets continues to grow, Almost Heaven Saunas is eying other markets as well. Distribution has just been established in both Egypt and Chile, and the company plans an aggressive trade show schedule in 2013. Confirmed events include shows in Brazil, Canada, and Spain, and possible event locations include Russia and Singapore.

The use of traditional steam saunas continues to grow worldwide, both due to the desire for an authentic sauna experience as well as for the substantial health benefits delivered by a true sauna. Unlike infrared rooms, steam saunas deliver far more health benefits due to the high temperatures and steam that the sauna heater generates.

Almost Heaven Saunas was founded in the mid 1970’s and is one of the market leaders for barrel saunas. The company distributes its saunas worldwide and prides itself on high quality craftsmanship in the Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia USA.
