Bath Planet welcomes Ron Carrier

Ron Carrier has served as president of his family-owned windows business since 1987. Due to problems caused by the economy, Ron recently began expanding his product and service offerings to reach a wider range of customers. After hearing about the great opportunities bathroom remodeling offered from other dealers within the home improvement industry, he began looking for a way to add it to his services. Ron plans to formally open his Bath Planet location January 1, 2013.

How did you learn about the brand?
In the economic downturn, generating leads is a difficult task. We diversified our product line lately to include roofing, window film and garage doors, but we were still looking for a hot home improvement item. Bathroom remodeling in particular was something we knew was hot by talking to dealers across the US. Bath Planet gave us the opportunity to add that to our services.

What was appealing to you about joining Bath Planet?
We feel the Bath Planet name is going to be exclusive –in addition to Good Housekeeping seal which is also exclusive to Bath Planet. I also like the idea of installations being done in one day, which matches the specialty-type products that we always look for.
Our average sale wasn’t too high at the moment because of financing difficulties, so Bath Planet fits right in with our business.

How do you connect with the local community through your business?
We give money to a charity called Giving Hearts with every appointment that we set. We also do things with the local schools’ football and basketball teams.
What are your expansion or development plans?
Right now we’re involved with 9 counties. I’d love to see this take off to where we could gather more territory and more counties.
