Boasting about 30 years of experience the Gharieni Group GmbH is one of the leading international manufacturers of high-quality wellness beds, treatment beds and devices for the areas of spa, wellness, cosmetics and pedicure/podiatry.

Sammy Gharieni was born to a Tunisian father and Belgian mother in Tunis. At a young age he already showed some pioneering spirit and attached little Gharieni labels to the devices he built. In 1981 a scholarship took him to the University of Duisburg where he completed his studies with an electrical engineering degree. The first career milestone followed in 1992 when he established the trading company “Electro-Medical Gharieni”, which engineered beds for medical treatment, dialysis and plastics surgery. In 2005 Sammy Gharieni identified enormous potential in the spa and wellness sector and made a trendsetting entry into new markets with quality-controlled, innovative high-tech wellness and treatment beds. With their multiple functionalities, top-class materials, exclusive design and especially the personalised choice of extras, covers and colours Gharieni took beds to the next level. “I am driven by passion and I absolutely love what I do – and this decides on the avenue you opt for at the end of the day,” says Sammy Gharieni describing his daily motivation.
Professional Concept and Global Success
Gharieni Group GmbH has now become a global player and their products bearing the “Made in Germany” quality seal are sold in over 100 countries around the globe. The portfolio not only includes wellness beds, cosmetic and podiatry beds but also furniture as well as cosmetic and medical devices and consumables for studios and practices. Wellness concepts with entire treatment routines, matching accessories as well as training on the equipment round off the range.
Active networking at national and international level ranks very highly. At a very early stage the Gharieni-Team also saw the need to look beyond their own backyard when developing new products. The in-house creative department therefore continuously cooperates with specialists from a wide variety of fields and sectors of industry. “The principles of successful companies are innovation, investment in research and multi-disciplinary cooperation. A worldwide network is indispensable for this,” says Sammy Gharieni.
