At the start of 2023 we announced the appointment of Pat McGee to the role of Vice President of Sales! After being an ARC representative for many years in the mid-west, Pat now heads up our Sales division with a team that spans from the east to west coast!
2. We exhibited at JLC Live
In March, Pat and the ARC team visited Rhode Island to exhibit at the JLC Live Residential Construction Show! As you can see, they had a great few days meeting contractors and trade experts, and were excited to show them the invaluable benefits of curbless showers.
3. We launched the Classic Tile-In Drain
Back in the spring, we launched the Classic Tile-In Drain, which offers an incredibly modern, ‘barely there’ finish for ARC TrueDEK Classic and Classic8 shower bases.
4. ARC had a branding makeover
Earlier this year ARC had a makeover! We ditched our old blue branding in favor of a stylish red which now appears across our brochures, socials, and website, and better aligns us with our European colleagues.
If you didn’t already know, ARC is part of the AKW Holdings Group of companies, which includes fellow accessible bathroom manufacturers AKW Medi-Care Ltd in the UK, AKW International across Europe, and DLP in the British Isles.
5. ARC became members of the NTCA
A huge highlight of 2023 was ARC becoming members of the National Tile Contractors Association! We’re thrilled to be part of such a friendly and supportive organisation and look forward to working with them in the future!
6. New Curbless Shower Systems Brochure
This summer was a VERY busy one for the ARC team with the launch of our Curbless Showering brochure!
Featuring information about all our different barrier-free shower bases from TrueDEK to FastDEK, everything you could need to know about creating an accessible shower can be found inside.
7. ARC appointed Brian Wright to head up Healthcare sales division
Earlier this year, ARC welcomed Brian Wright of GOSWI to the team! Brian benefits from years of expertise in the healthcare market and will head up the Sales division in this sector covering the entire United States!
8. The ARC website had a refresh
Our biggest achievement of 2023 has to be our refresh of the ARC website! This summer we unveiled our new-look site that is much easier to navigate and has all the information you could need about our wide range of curbless shower bases, glass screens, wall panels, shower seats, and grab bars.
9. New Accessible Bathrooms brochure
This autumn we introduced another brochure to our range! The ARC Accessible Bathrooms brochure specifically focuses on products that are designed to increase bathroom independence for seniors and people living with a variety of disabilities.
If you’re looking for ways to make the bathroom a safer, easier to use space, we can offer lots of different products that are ideal for commercial and residential environments.
10. Launched Velena Wall Panels collection
In August we launched our collection of Velena Wall Panels! Available in three contemporary patterns and two colors, these highly durable composite panels are ideal for accessible showers due to their strength versatility, and can be installed super-fast, saving you time and money on tiling.
11. We grew our Sales team
Our VP of Sales Pat McGee has been in role for almost a year and has made some great progress with the growth of our team of ARC Sales Reps!
