BCI Acrylic Bath Systems, Inc., a leading bath products manufacturer headquartered in Palatine, Illinois, has two very special announcements.

While we enjoy and celebrate our past successes, I can’t help but look even more enthusiastically towards our very bright future. We are committed to aggressively growing our organization both in the short and long term.

BCI Acrylic Bath Systems, Inc., a leading bath products manufacturer headquartered in Palatine, Illinois, has two very special announcements.

First, we are announcing that Mr. Tom Barzantny is now officially retiring from his position as the President of our company, effective May 19, 2015. Tom co-founded BCI with his partner, Scott Rosenbach, in 1999. Theirs has been a true success story. The two partners initially began the light manufacturing of acrylic bath, shower and wall systems out of a garage. Over the course of the next sixteen years, the company grew dramatically due to their vision and dedication to providing customers with the best possible product quality, selection and service. As Tom steps away, he can be proud that he helped lead a company that has grown to two locations, over 75 employees and a vast dealer network (over 700 and counting!) that serves the entire U.S. and Canada.

"The past 16 years have been incredibly rewarding,” Tom has stated. “I am honored by my association with the many employees, suppliers and customers I have had the pleasure to work with here and all across the country. I will miss the daily contact with each of them dearly, but it’s time for me to step back, spend more time with my wife, and explore other interests.”

Scott added: “I sincerely thank Tom for his valuable contributions and outstanding partnership. We will be indebted to him for his passionate leadership, business acumen and dedication."

Of equal importance is BCI’s second major announcement. Scott Rosenbach has purchased his founding partner’s share of the business and is now the sole owner of BCI. Scott will continue to be active in the business in his role as CEO.

"I am honored to lead our great family of brands (Bath Planet, BCI Acrylic, Bath Makeover and Liquid Accents), and am committed to working with our dealers, suppliers and employees to drive forward our strategic business priorities to better serve our customers," Scott stated.

“Our organic growth over the past 16 years has been amazing,” said Scott. “While we enjoy and celebrate our past successes, I can’t help but look even more enthusiastically towards our very bright future. We are committed to aggressively growing our organization both in the short and long term. We will be seeking to expand our product lines through strategic alliances, vertical integration and manufacturing innovation. In fact, we are very excited about our next phase of innovation and growth and expect to make some exciting announcements in early Q3.”
