An Industry First: The Maax Bath Experience Goes Mobile To Bring Innovative Bath Spaces To Canadians From Coast-to-coast

MONTREAL, April 5, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - MAAX, the leading Canadian manufacturer of trend-setting and award-winning bathroom products, is about to embark on an ambitious multiple city cross-country tour with the first stop in Vancouver starting April 15. MAAX will hit the road with a one-of-a-kind, interactive 900 square foot mobile showroom and other mobile units that will bring the unique MAAX experience to Canadian homeowners, builders, designers, contractors and DIY-ers in all major Canadian cities throughout the spring.

"Our research shows that a majority of Canadians want to improve at least one of their bathroom spaces; they want to transform their outdated bathrooms into smarter, more efficient and modern spaces but often they don't know where to start or that something better is available. The fact is, MAAX has industry-leading bath solutions to address a homeowner's every need and our travelling MAAX BATH EXPERIENCE will bring our innovative and trendsetting Canadian products right to their doorstep," said Steve C. Stephens, Corporate Vice President, Commercial Operations, MAAX.

Ottawa-based interior designer Ulya Jensen, co-host of HGTV's "Home to FlipTM" and the MAAX BATH EXPERIENCE designer spokesperson stated: "Undertaking home renovations can be intimidating - and bathroom spaces are no exception. As a designer I get excited when I get to work with innovative and sustainable products that offer homeowners designer solutions at every price point. MAAX products do just that because they listen to their customers. This tour will provide Canadian made, attractively priced bathroom solutions for anyone embarking on a home renovation project."

"For the last 42 years, MAAX has been synonymous with quality, accessibility and innovation. We work hard at delivering innovative, practical solutions and as a result we've increased new product sales by 250% since 2010. We are proud to continue to lead the industry in Canada with the ability to leverage the largest Canadian manufacturing footprint in our industry and the know-how that comes with it. As industry leaders we continue to pave the way with this unprecedented national tour for the benefit of our customers," added Mr. Stephens.
