About Amba Products

Established in 2004, Amba Products had a clear goal in mind – to make the heated towel rack a must-have item for every bathroom in North America. While Europeans have been drying and warming their towels on heated towel racks for decades, most Americans have no experience with them. For many Americans, heated towel racks are viewed as expensive, not widely available, and seen only in the homes of the wealthy. A perception has persisted that they are a luxury item out of reach for the average American family.


Amba Products changed this view and is proud to be one of the first companies in the U.S. to introduce consumers to affordable, stylish heated towel racks made of high-quality stainless steel. Amba offers the most extensive variety of heated towel racks in the country and serves more than 200 retailers throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, Amba Products is family-owned and operated.

Key Features:
• 150 affordable models to choose from (special order available)
• Made with high-quality 304-grade durable stainless steel (100-percent recyclable)
• Energy efficient (only uses a much electricity as a few light bulbs)
•Saves on water consumption as towels do not need to be laundered as often
•Health & Wellness benefits include the reduction of mold and mildew
•Ease of installation (mounted models can be installed by an electrician in a few hours, free-standing units simply need to be plugged-in)
• Superior customer service and local support

Non-traditional Uses:
Mudrooms
Laundry rooms
Garages
Dormitories
Hotels, retreats, cruise ships, health clubs, spas
