Sauna People Co. - Our Story

Harry Stein: founder of The Sauna People Ltd

Sauna People Co. 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.

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

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