Universal Companies 2008 Catalog Focus Is "Green"

Universal Companies Catalog Cover Universal Companies' all new 2008 catalog, always the preeminent resource for the spa industry, has new focus this year: Green. This year's Spa Resource Book is one of the most comprehensive resources available to help spas incorporate sustainability into their facilities. The catalog will be unveiled at this year's Spa & Resort and Medical Spa Expo and Conference February 23-25 in Los Angeles.

This year, in an effort to better serve customers and improve how we use our planet's resources, Universal encouraged its suppliers to not only look for ways they could implement green processes within their manufacturing facilities, but to actually reformulate or redesign products to incorporate earth-friendly materials. The company's buyers prioritized their selections for 2008 to focus on products that were sustainable, recyclable, compostable, and whenever possible, grown organically.

Once products were chosen and evaluated, those deemed to be environmentally friendly received a special designation in the catalog, making them easily identifiable.
Additionally, Universal's Spa Resource Book is recyclable and printed on paper produced from well-managed and responsibly harvested forests, which meet strict environmental and socioeconomic standards.

The 2008 edition of the Spa Resource Book is Universal's largest ever, with approximately 450 pages filled with more than 5,000 products. It features hundreds of exciting new items, as well as many favorite products, and a new retail product offering. Many offerings are exclusive to Universal Companies, whose mission is to consistently deliver innovative spa solutions to maximize the success of our partner-customers.

Universal Companies has a broad range of spa products and equipment, as well as unparalleled customer service, education and training programs, marketing and merchandising tools, and industry experts dedicated to helping clients succeed. The many products and services Universal offers reinforces the Spa Resource Book message, "It's All Here."
