Oregon spa manufacturer does what few others can - adds an abundance of visual stimulation for 2008 while holding prices at 2007 level

Independence, Ore – Employee-owned Marquis SpasĀ® is going against the current with the
launch of its 2008 product line. While the pool and spa industry’s economic downturn
continues, Marquis is adding a plethora of visual stimulation to its already high quality products
while holding prices essentially the same as in 2007.

“In an economic downturn, you basically have two choices. You either hunker down and wait
for things to improve or you keep innovating and moving forward,” said Marquis’ President and
CEO John Schrenk. “At Marquis, we are moving full steam ahead. We’ve never had products
that are so visually appealing. And, best of all, we’ve managed to add an abundance of features
to our 2008 products without raising our prices. You’ll be hard pressed to find other spa
manufacturers who aren’t raising prices for 2008.”

Marquis Spas’ new features include the AdagioTM Audio System. Adagio adds an AM/FM/CD
dimension to the spa experience. And, best of all, it’s iPod and MP3 player ready. The system
comes with one-touch pop-up speakers that can rotate to direct the sound and a remote
control for added convenience. Marquis Spas will still offer its SoundsationsTM Audio System.
The ConstellationTM Light System is also new. Constellation features lights placed below the
waterline, as well as exterior lights that make the surrounding environment glow. It even has a
“disco” function for bathers in a party mood.

In addition to the current waterfall and convenience tray, Marquis has added a new oval
waterfall feature that spouts a perfectly smooth stream of water. Other additions include
cushioned headrests made of flexible PVC and new stainless steel jets. And Marquis’
DuraWood synthetic exterior cabinet can now be ordered in a horizontal version on 2008

To draw on the strength of the Marquis Spas’ name, all previous sub-brands and lines have
been eliminated. Instead the spa manufacturer is introducing three collections. There’s a
Marquis Discovery Collection with basic essential features and various a-la-carte options, a
Marquis Signature Collection with the most popular features as standard equipment and a
Marquis Ultimate Collection for the consumer who wants it all. This streamlining allows Marquis
to provide all models in a lower price configuration while still leaving the consumer the ability to
customize every model in the 2008 line-up.

“Streamlining our product line has, as strange as it may sound, allowed us to be more flexible,”
said Schrenk. “The consumer can get exactly what they want at the price point they need. It
has also allowed us to substantially increase our warranty coverage, making it much stronger.
We think it’s good news all around for the consumer.”

Marquis Spas’ 2008 product line was shown internationally at the Piscina Show in Barcelona,
Spain, in October. It will be shown in its entirety for the first time in the U.S. at the International
Pool & Spa Expo in Orlando, Florida, November 28-30.

Marquis Spas, an employee-owned company based in Independence, Oregon, has been
building spas since 1980. Employees/owners take great pride in the quality and performance of
the products they build. For more information please call (800) 275-0888 or log onto
