Bath Planet® Enters Little Rock Market

Introduces affordable bath remodeling solutions with revolutionary customer experience


Little Rock, Ark. — After extensive market research, ProBuilder Supply recognized the uptick in small renovations, which lead to the decision to become the exclusive authorized dealer of Bath Planet® in Arkansas.

For the past 15 years, Pro Builder Supply has been under the leadership of Darin Wiggs and has been the leading distributor of decorative hardware & lighting in the central Arkansas area. With this success, Wiggs continued to look for the next industry trend and a new business opportunity.   He found it with the help of his longtime childhood friend, John Via, who has an extensive background in the bathroom remodeling industry.  Despite the economic constraints on the home remodeling and renovation market, Darin and John discovered Bath Planet®, a company that was financially sound and provided an affordable and appealing alternative to costly bathroom renovations.

"Bath Planet® will provide us with a new business opportunity to capture an even wider segment of business in Little Rock. The brand has a strong industry reputation of outstanding customer service and superior product design," said Wiggs, owner of Bath Planet Little Rock. "We were looking for an industry with strong growth numbers, and after noticing remodeling trends in Little Rock, we knew that we could bring a new and exciting business to the market."

Strategically, Wiggs wanted to make the right addition to the Little Rock area and enhance his existing business by adding a cost-effective bathroom component to complement it. What he recognized is that more homeowners are making conscious decisions to make smaller, more affordable updates to their homes as they are living in them longer.

"We are excited to have Pro Builder Supply on board as our first authorized retailer in the state of Arkansas. They can provide the expertise and exceptional service that our company prides itself on," said Rick Hirschhaut, senior vice president of Bath Planet®. "We have found a great partner in Darin, as they have consistently been a leader in the remodeling market, providing superior products and delivering the best customer satisfaction."

Bath Planet® has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of approval, which is given only after lengthy and meticulous evaluation. The credential is recognized widely as a symbol of consumer assurance and protection in the marketplace and demonstrates unparalleled level of commitment to the best products and customer service.

Together, the best minds in the industry have been brought together to research all elements of bathroom remodeling, including top tier manufacturing, installation, design and customer service. This foundation led to the development of the world's best product value in bathroom remodeling.
