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.

Future plans
Universal Companies will continue to provide an excellent customer experience by growing our proprietary brands, supplies, business accounts, and training and education. We will keep bringing clients the latest trends and ideas to help their business grow.
