MAAX Bath Inc., a North American leader in the bathware industry, is pleased to announce that it was named the 2018 Innovation Vendor Partner of the Year, by Lowes US, for its Utile by MAAX product.
Utile by MAAX was rolled out across Lowes US this past year, and has been huge success with customers. Due to its realistic tile and grout design, as well as ease of installation, Utile shower wall panels were an instant success with the consumer market.
“It took years and serious investment to develop Utile by MAAX, but the effort paid off," said André Deland, vice president of new product development and marketing at MAAX. "Our proprietary manufacturing process produces designs and a realistic texture to the tiles that is unparalleled in the industry, and our team is honored and proud of this recognition and all the achievements of Utile.”
Utile by MAAX is available across Canada and continues to rollout in stores in the United States.
Utile: the evolution of tile
Utile is a shower wall solution that combines sophisticated style with easy installation. The panels have an ingenious polymer surface with an appearance and texture that look like natural stone and ceramic tile. Utile’s durable, elegant look is the perfect way to revitalize any bathroom decor and requires little maintenance.
The Utile system is faster to install than ceramic tiles thanks to a mistake-proof “Ulok” system, making it easier to perfectly align the walls; just slip them together and lock them into place.
With direct-to-stud installation, Utile is also grout-free, eliminating messy grout installation, maintenance, and periodic repair, and reducing the risk of leaks. Covered by a 10-year warranty, Utile includes a vast range of patterns in the following series: Metro, Origin, Stone, Organik, Factory, Marble, Wallpaper, Smooth, and Erosion.
