Cherokee County residents in the market for a walk-in tub have a distinct advantage if they purchase a Boca walk-in tub. While the Woodstock-based company has a national footprint – selling and installing tubs across the country – every facet of tub production runs through Boca’s local factory.
“From ownership, to office personnel, to the manufacturing process, all Boca employees are locally based,” Boca President Bruce Hollinger said. “In an industry that trends toward importing pre-manufactured parts while focusing only on sales, Boca takes pride in owning every step of its sales, production and shipping process.”
Boca opened its doors in 2008 as a family-owned business. While ownership changed in 2019, the business remains family-owned. The need for walk-in tubs has grown as the trend in senior housing has moved away from traditional assisted living toward homes and complexes that provide privacy and independence.
“Boca is committed to offering a tub that optimizes safety, cleanliness and therapy, and focuses on offering these solutions to those wishing to age in place,” said Internal Sales Manager Anna Nardone.
The customer base has more than doubled since Hollinger, Matt Denis and Dominic Telymonde purchased the company. The goal is to continue to grow its dealer network and overall footprint of customers in the coming years. By focusing on its unique manufacturing and customization process, while continuing to stress top-tier customer service, Boca is eager to continue to provide a safe and luxurious bathing experience.
Common tub features such as the jetting system or light and aromatherapy are comforting, but Boca’s MICRO THERAPY system has been described as life-changing by several tub owners.
Most consumers research purchases online or through an in-home presentation, but Boca’s plant allows customers to see, test-fit the sizes, and custom-build their tubs in person, with no need to open up their house until the day of installation.
“A recent purchaser called in just weeks after installation to rave about the instant improvement in her life,” Boca Installation Coordinator Alissa Robichaux said. “After years of struggling with rough and dead skin on her feet that had become difficult to live with, her condition was immediately improved, and MICRO THERAPY continues to be a staple of her bathing routine.”
Local residents can tour the factory by scheduling in-person appointments or simply walking in. Tub features and more information is available on the website, www.bocawalkintubs.com.
What Makes Boca TUBS Special?
Low Threshold. The primary feature of all Boca tubs is a step threshold of 2 inches or less, which is far lower than the average clearance height for other brands on the market, according to Boca Vice President of Operations Matt Denis.
“While each tub from all manufacturers is unique, Boca is the only manufacturer producing tubs that can be installed onto a subfloor,” he said. “All other walk-in tubs sit on built-up frames. So while the exact step threshold varies with every tub, Boca is the only one able to promote a height of 2 inches since all others must be placed on top of a frame.”
Internal Frame Design. Boca is the only internal frame tub on the market, according to Hollinger. Each tub has a 1-inch steel rim around the top, and marine-grade, gel-coated fiberglass throughout. Building the tubs with an internal frame instead of placing them on an external frame allows the tubs to be installed directly onto the subfloor of most project sites, and adaptable to any floor plan. Most installations are completed within a day.
MICRO THERAPY System. An option for any Boca tub is the MICRO THERAPY system, which produces millions of microscopic bubbles that clean skin pores over the entire body, eliminating the need for scrubbing or shifting for anyone with mobility issues. It also serves as therapeutic treatment for a variety of skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema.
Fully Customizable. Seven sizes of tubs are offered, and each can be outfitted with features such as air and water jets, a rainfall showerhead attachment, a heated seat and even a built-in sound system, among many other options.
Longevity. With nearly 15 years in business, Boca’s owners are proud there are still Boca tubs in use from 2008 that have required only routine maintenance over their lifespan. All tubs come with a lifetime warranty, and the area around Woodstock is covered by fast and dependable locally based installers and service technicians.
