Bath Planet welcomes Bruce Thompson

Bruce Thompson has been involved in the plumbing industry for 35 years. Although he grew up in California, he has lived in southern Utah for the past 20 years. In 1996, during his transition between the two states, he established a plumbing company called Bruce Thompson Plumbing LLC, with bathroom remodeling being a staple of the services he provides. He runs the business with his two sons and his wife; Elizabeth, Jared and Josh. Elizabeth has a background in finances and takes care of the company book keeping.

How did you learn about the brand?
I was approached by Bath Planet corporate and it ended up being a great fit because we do a high volume of bath remodels already. We really see Bath Planet as a way to give back to the community and help people who need a quick and easy solution or remodel.

What makes your business different?
Seeing that the times were changing, it was apparent to me that Bath Planet is a necessary service in the area. We can provide a fast turnaround at a good price with the highest quality product available.

What challenges have you overcome to get where you are now?
I think especially in the construction industry, just starting out as a contractor and building up a business can be difficult. You have to develop your skill and look for opportunities to make that transition from being a one truck operation to running a large business. It’s a tough transition.

What are your expansion or development plans?
Currently we have the rights for southern Utah and we have ideas to expand through the entire state. Right now we are focused on establishing a presence in the area with Bath Planet so that we can continue to grow.

Do you have any other interesting hobbies or passions?
I like nostalgic things and have a passion for vintage cars. Through my ventures of older collectables, I’ve come across a bathtub from the early 1900’s - it’s a folding bathtub and it’s a cool piece of our showroom!
