Retiring Bestbath Engineer Reflects on 34 Years of Innovation and Design
Missile containers. Muzzle covers. Aquaculture Filtration Equipment. Wildlife water tanks… and bathtubs?
“During those first few years, we built it all,” says retiring Bestbath engineer Peter van Ravenhorst. “We were always innovating on how to build stuff, and that’s what helped us get ahead in the bathing industry later on.” Van Ravenhorst started at Bestbath in 1986 as an engineer designing molds for a wide range of fiberglass products. Today, he’s retiring from the company, which now employs over 175 people manufacturing thousands of composite showers at its state-of-the-art facility in Caldwell, Idaho.
