Bath Planet Welcomes Our Newest Dealer, Greg Olson!

Greg Olson is originally from Northern Michigan, attending college at Northern Michigan University in Marquette and obtaining a degree in science. In 1988, Greg went into the remodeling business, working with National Home Remodeling until he became a district manager. He stayed with the company for 10 years before moving east to do consulting for a remodeling company in Harrisburg, PA. Next, Greg worked in Chicago for a computer company before moving to Toledo, OH as a corporate sales manager for a different remodeling company. He performed more consulting in the home remodeling business industry on the West Coast before starting Kodiak Construction LLC in 2001.

How did you learn about the brand?
I had been a BCI dealer for 8 years and BCI corporate asked us if we wanted to be the official dealer for our territory. Since two of our major product lines are windows and BCI products, we decided becoming the official dealer was a great fit for our business.

What was appealing to you about joining a dealer system?
The systems BCI corporate provides us are great – the website for Bath Planet is very user-friendly. The quality and strict guidelines for dealers, as well as the rigorous structure we need to follow as dealers, fits with the high quality of service we like to provide our customers.

What makes your business different?
We are extremely high on quality and we have a high number of retained business with our clients. I personally go on job sites and am heavily invested in my business. We have an A-plus rating with the Better Business Bureau, in addition to a great team and staff.

How do you connect with the local community through your business?
We do things with a number of charities. We have recently worked with The Lions Club and are working to help the blind.

What challenges have you overcome to get where you are now?
Just adjusting and adapting to the economy.

What are your expansion or development plans?
Our goal with Bath Planet is to continue to develop the area between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.

Do you have any other interesting hobbies or passions?
I love to fish whenever I get the chance and I’m a die-hard Packers fan! I like the outdoors and spending time with my family.
