Marti Morenings, founder and chair

Background
Universal Companies has served the spa industry since Marti Morenings and her father, Dr. G.H. Morenings, founded it in 1982 as Universal Health Products. In 1999, the company expanded its offerings and became Universal Companies, providing spa professionals with a one-source spa solution. The company acquired SpaEquip in 2015, expanding its spa development services and FF&E options with a robust equipment partner.

Main products and services
The ultimate spa and wellness resource, Universal Companies is an international distributor of products, equipment, retail, and supplies to spas, skincare professionals, and resort and destination properties. In addition, training and education are core components of our service offering.

USPs
With more than 36 years of success, we help clients build their business and grow revenue. Our business is good when their businesses are better. Universal Companies’ mission has always been to deliver innovative spa solutions and excellent customer service to maximise our customers’ success. Our product selection is continually evolving to help spas meet the needs of the growing wellness movement. We have a passion for helping spas lead the way in the green movement, showing them how to implement green practices and encouraging vendors to apply high environmental standards to their own products and processes.

Future plans
Universal Companies will continue to provide an excellent customer experience by growing our signature brands, expanding training and education, and bringing clients the latest trends and ideas to help their businesses grow. We have also recently unveiled a new mobile-friendly website that allows customers to track orders in multiple ways, more easily access education while shopping, research equipment specifications, and manage their accounts more efficiently.
