Great Grabz LLC is thrilled to announce that Best Bath Systems will be the exclusive distributor of their award winning line of Decorative grabs bars and bath accessories. The 2 companies will also be partnering to bring new, innovative decorative shower systems, bathroom environments and accessories to the residential market, as well as senior living, hospitality and healthcare projects.
Abbie Sladick, President, started Great Grabz in Naples, Florida in 2004 when a remodeling client told her, “I would rather fall than have my friends think I have a grab bar!” Those words changed the world of Sladick, sending her on a journey to create stylish, safe and ADA compliant alternatives to the institutional looking grab bar. For the last 8 years, Great Grabz has been designing, manufacturing, and distributing safe and stylish grab bars and bathroom accessories in a variety of designer metallic finishes as well as optical grade acrylic and teak. Great Grabz can be found in hotels and senior living projects throughout North America, including Hyatt, Hilton, Disney, Hard Rock Casino and Marriott.
Sladick says, “Our new strategic partnership with Best Bath Systems will enable us to bring complete accessible bathroom environments to people of all ages and abilities who want style and safety. Design Professionals will now have innovative products to specify that are aesthetically pleasing. Designers will have peace of mind knowing that the Best Bath team will be there to assist with engineering, ADA compliance and construction coordination.”
Best Bath Systems, based in Caldwell, Idaho, just west of Boise, is a leading American manufacturer of walk-in showers and bathtubs for residential and commercial remodels and new construction. Since 1971, Best Bath Systems has been dedicated to designing and manufacturing bathroom products that are safe for people of all abilities.
“Our goal at Best Bath Systems is to offer upscale, luxury bathing systems to anyone who is considering modifying or remodeling their bathroom,” states Gary Multanen, Best Bath Systems founder and CEO. When Multanen’s mother was not able to use her bathtub any longer, he realized what a great need there was for safe, accessible bathing units.
Multanen says, “Joining forces with Great Grabz is exactly the kind of opportunity we embrace. Our second goal is to offer products made in North America. When the opportunity presented itself to add a premium line of elegant safety bars that truly enhance the beauty of the bathroom, it made sense to move forward.”
Jeff Mooney, President of Best Bath Systems says, “We are pleased and excited with the opportunity to represent a high end product line with the reputation Great Grabz brings to the industry. Great Grabz’s product compliments our upscale bathing systems very nicely. Safety and accessibility have always been an important aspect of our business and now we can add beauty and style to the mix.” Mooney continues, “ With our distribution network, this product will be widely available through internet dealers as well as over 500 storefronts though out the US and Canada.”
