Aquassure Accessible Baths was founded in 2001 as Aquassure Bath Products by Matthew Longman and Shari McDowell. In 2004, Aquassure placed third in the 2004 Telus New Ventures Competition, one of the largest business and technology competitions in North America. Shortly afterwards, they incorporated to form Aquassure Bath Products Inc. The original product, the Aquassure Slide-in Bathtub had input from engineers, ergonomist, gerontologists, plumbers, industry professionals, and users. They worked closely with experts from both the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), and Simon Fraser University (SFU). After six years of development, in 2007, they debuted their Aquassure slide-in bathtubs at the Buildex/Design Northwest trade show in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Manufacturing was originally done by Custom Plastics in Vancouver, and then moved to Kelowna, BC.
Their slide-in bathtub, now called the Active Daily Living Spa tub, is the signature Aquassure tub that started it all, featuring all the comfort of laying back and soaking in a traditional tub, plus all the safety features of a walk-in tub. Its sit and slide ease of entry and non-clinical esthetic makes it a prominent favourite among clients and care givers alike.
In 2011, Aquassure partnered with quality-minded Best Bath Systems to license production of the ADL Spa to Boise, Idaho. Today their partnership also extends to being the master-distributors of the Best Bath line of walk-in tubs and barrier free showers across Canada. Together they provide a full range of tub and shower products for every need, customisable to fit each unique situation.
