Background
Sue Harmsworth founded ESPA in the UK in 1993 following a 20-plus year career in spa and beauty. Global expansion followed and ESPA is now found in more than 460 spas worldwide with over 250 award wins under their belt. In recognition of her services to the spa and beauty industry, Sue was awarded an MBE by the Queen in 2010.

Main products and services
With over 20 years’ experience building award-winning spas in six continents, and with a pioneering collection of natural spa products and treatments, ESPA stands at the forefront of today’s global spa industry as an authority on spa creation and management.
As the spa industry has evolved so has ESPA – the company’s consultancy services offer clients a broad range of bespoke and flexible spa services to suit their needs.
Using its global infrastructure and world-class team, ESPA now provides a comprehensive service portfolio offering design, operational and education consultancy as well as standalone product and treatment supply.
The approach is tailored, needs-led and underpinned by the same knowledge, training systems and infrastructure that continues to set ESPA apart from its competitors.

USPs
First and foremost it’s ESPA’s expertise – the deep understanding, longevity and continuity of the team in place.
Their knowledge of the customer, ability to teach and grow others and deliver such efficacious products and treatments is unrivalled and has resulted in a deep connection with customers on both an emotional and physical level. ESPA takes the time to invest in its people by continually mentoring and teaching – consequently many of its staff have been with the company for over 15 years and understand the brand at all levels. The passion of the ESPA team to continue being experts in their field, while always sticking to the company’s standards and principles, will ensure on-going success.
