SANIJET Severs Ties to Traditional
Distribution

Coppell, TX In a move aimed “at ensuring consumer awareness” of
the features of its pipeless whirlpool baths, SANIJET Corp. will no
longer sell those products through dealers and distributors that
also sell piped whirlpool and air tub systems manufactured by
competitors, the company announced.

SANIJET, which is based in this Dallas suburb, announced in
mid-April that it is moving away from traditional kitchen and bath
showrooms, and is “taking its message directly to consumers and the
trades.”

“From the moment we began preparing for launch, we set out to
provide the public with a cleaner, safer whirlpool system by
relying on traditional plumbing channels to educate consumers about
the sanitation issues associated with competing system
technologies,” said v.p./sales and marketing Philip Klement. “Those
channels, however, have not, as a whole, seemed willing to fully
discuss cleaning and sanitation issues with their customers.”

SANIJET, which unveiled its pipeless whirlpool bath technology
one year ago, has had its products carried by a nationwide network
of plumbing distributors, decorative showrooms and others in the
kitchen/bath industry. However, the company soon found itself
facing a “dilemma” that resulted from showroom sales personnel
being “uncomfortable” in discussing the merits of SANIJET’s product
line “as long as they continue to display and sell piped air tub
systems,” Klement said.
