【DE】Sammy Gharieni awarded “A Life of Beauty” award

Sammy Gharieni, founder and CEO of the group of the same name, was awarded the “A Life of Beauty” award in 2022. Sammy Gharieni is considered a determined visionary who revolutionized the spa and wellness industry with innovative treatment tables. In 2022, the company Gharieni celebrates its 30th anniversary. With three decades of experience, the Gharieni Group is one of the leading international manufacturers of high-quality wellness loungers, treatment tables and equipment for the areas of spa, wellness, cosmetics and pedicure/podology. The name “Gharieni” stands for a brand with high quality standards, which forms a globally active company with several branches.


With the “A Life of Beauty” award, Messe Düsseldorf honors personalities who have made a special contribution to professional cosmetics and are considered to be the driving force in the industry. The laudatory speech was presented by Christian Schikora, Managing Director of Kosmetik International and Michael Schummert, CEO & Founder M4Trinity Consulting GmbH. Sammy Gharieni could not be there at the award ceremony in Düsseldorf for personal reasons, the award was received by his son Elias Gharieni on behalf. The prize money of 5,000 euros will be donated to the SOS Children’s Village Tunisia. My father is of Tunisian and Belgian descent. He is still emotionally very connected to Tunisia, which is why we make the money available to a project that supports young Tunisians in their training,” says Elias Gharieni.


The fact that the Düsseldorf trade fair can take place again after a two-year corona break is also welcomed with relief from the Gharieni Group. “My father has always been a passionate visionary and is always looking for new concepts in the spa and wellness area. Consumers are at the center of every development and every new product innovation is tailored exactly to our customers. Due to its European appeal, BEAUTY is one of the central platforms to present our product innovations, says Elias Gharieni.

Passionate visionary

Sammy Gharieni was born in Tunis as the son of a Tunisian father and a Belgian mother. In 1981, his path led him through a scholarship to the University of Duisburg and he completed his training as a graduate engineer in electrical engineering. The first career milestone followed in 1992 with the founding of the trading company “Electro-Medical Gharieni”, in which the first loungers were designed for the fields of medicine, dialysis and aesthetic surgery. In 2005, Sammy Gharieni recognized the enormous potential in the spa and wellness industry and ensured a trend-setting departure into new markets with quality-controlled, high-tech and innovative wellness and treatment tables. Through multi-functionality, first-class material, exclusive design and above all the individual choices of equipment, cover and color, the Gharieni loungers reached a new level of quality. “I am driven by passion and I absolutely love what I do – and this is crucial for the path you ultimately choose,” Sammy Gharieni describes his daily motivation.


Professional concept and worldwide success

Meanwhile, the Gharieni Group is a globally active company whose products with the quality feature “Made in Germany” are sold in over 120 countries worldwide. In addition to wellness loungers, cosmetic loungers, podiatry loungers, the portfolio also includes furnishing furniture as well as cosmetic and medical equipment and consumables for work in the studio and practice. Holistic wellness concepts with perfectly thought-out treatment programs, suitable accessories and equipment training complete the offer.

Of course, Gharieni Group GmbH also had to tackle the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. “Despite the initial concern and uncertainty due to the corona pandemic, we have been able to master the last two years well. With new, partly contactless treatment technologies, we have paved the way towards the future.”


Active networking at national and international level is of great importance. Early on, the Gharieni team recognized the need to think outside the box when developing new products. The internal development department continuously cooperates with specialists from a wide variety of fields and industries. The principles of a successful company are based on innovation, investment in research and interdisciplinary cooperation. A worldwide network is indispensable,” says Sammy Gharieni.


In 2022, the Gharieni Group will be “official spa and wellness outfitter” of the Forbes Travel Guide for the fourth time in a row. The independent rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas gives Gharieni the coveted award for the representation of the best products and services in the field of spa and wellness.
