Kim began building and installing saunas for other families in Pietermaritzburg who wanted them. As luck would have it, his foray into the world of saunas coincided with the period in which the face of the health and fitness industry was being transformed. The holistic ‘California style fitness centre’ concept was being introduced, in favour of male-dominated gymnasiums which comprised only dumbbells, weights and benches, and Scandi was often asked to build saunas at these new gyms.
The Scandi portfolio grew over time to include spas and thereafter steam rooms with the development and manufacture of steam generator units.
Scandi has since grown in leaps and bounds, eventually relocating to larger premises in Pinetown, at which it continues to manufacture a wide range of high quality steam, sauna and spa products and accessories, which are supplied not only around the country, but around the world.
Scandi is owned and managed by Ayman who with his Turkish background is passionate about making Scandi a leader in the development of hammams (Turkish baths), exclusive and modern saunas as well as related products and strives to maintain high standards of quality, service and innovation at Scandi Spa.
