Best Bath Systems Inc., a Caldwell, Idaho-based manufacturer of shower and walk-in tub products, has purchased a 106,000-square-foot plant in Caldwell to serve as its new manufacturing center. The facility began operations on June 28.
The company also has relocated its sales and marketing departments to its Kuna, Idaho, offices.
"Purchasing the Purdue Building in Caldwell was the correct economic decision for us," said Gary Multanen, co-owner and CEO of Best Bath Systems. "Everyone we had contact with was first-class. It is very evident to us that Caldwell wants to increase their employment base and we are pleased to be a part of that effort."
Grand-opening festivities are scheduled for July 20.
Privately held by Gary and Susan Multanen, the company employs 87 people. Current plans call for the staff to grow to more than 100 employees by the end of 2011.
Best Bath Systems has been manufacturing bathing products in the Treasure Valley since 1971. Gary Multanen said the new location will serve the company's growth plans for the next 40 to 50 years.
