Floataway USA is the latest manifestation of Floataway in the UK and is based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
All North American sales of Floataway products go through the Tulsa office. Manufacture is now shared between the UK and the USA with ever increasing emphasis on our facilities in Oklahoma.
Floataway has been manufacturing floatation products for 20 years now and has pioneered many new designs and technical improvements. The founder, Colin Stanwell-Smith, is a chartered engineer with many years experience in technology and his son, Toby, is a gold medal design graduate. Colin’s wife, Gini, is the UK Managing Director, so it’s clear that Floataway is a family business. What is also clear with Debbie Worthington, as CEO of Floataway USA, is that Floataway is managed by smart, dedicated women and we find that is an important factor in our commercial success.
The first Floataway product 20 years ago was the Tranquility pod, still the most beautiful pod on the market with its motorized door and compactness: all of the technical parts fit within the footprint, and that model is still on sale today. However, the market has moved on and the popular products today are our Cabins, our open pools and our Floatarounds. We make two cabin sizes, 5 open pools and 4 round float pools.
We are proud to have been chosen by Dr. Justin Feinstein of the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (LIBR), in Tulsa, OK to design and install the clinical float facility there, where Dr. Feinstein is conducting the fascinating research into floating.
We are gearing up to be able to meet the demand of other clinical research facilities to replicate Dr. Feinstein’s research. We are excited about Dr. Feinstein’s results because he has shown how significant a float session is for clinically anxious people. His published research can be found here: www.clinicalfloatation.com along with a list of every peer reviewed published research paper about floating.
The Floataway range of products has been sold for the past two decades in over 50 countries around the world. Floataway is a truly international company which has helped hundreds of float centers get started. You will not find another float company with our breadth of experience and large range of products, nor with such a long period of successful trading within the float industry both in the USA and around the world.
