SAUNA PEOPLE – OUR STORY

Sauna People was formed in 1992 by Harry Stein, a Finn by birth, when he realised there was a ready market of sauna lovers in New Zealand, but with very little choice. So he set about importing the finest sauna equipment available.

Sauna People started the relationship with SAWO of Finland close to 20 years ago, and both companies have benefited from this ever since.  

Harry has since passed on but his unbridled passion and drive are still evident in the Sauna People ethos: providing New Zealand with the very best Sauna and Steam experience.

The result? The finest sauna and steam rooms available in New Zealand, with three out of four saunas built in New Zealand carrying the Sauna People name.

Today the current owners, Warren and Karen Duncan, enjoy a relationship with SAWO of Finland at the highest level. This strong relationship with SAWO ensures our customers receive the best value product, backed up by superior pre-sales and after-sales support.
