Anti-slip shower tray brand Senstec, which is based in Ireland, has made its first sale into the North American market.
Following specification into the 5-star Irish hotel, Drumoland Castle in 2020, an American couple who recently stayed chose to specified the shower tray for their own home.
It was selected as part of a bathroom refurbishment for Mr and Mrs Noble who live in the Pine Tree State of Maine, USA.
Kim Noble said: “Maine, where we reside, has an ageing population, and we embrace the ‘Aging in Place’ concept, designing homes to cater to our needs beyond retirement.
“Senstec ensures a long-lasting, safe showering experience.”
The Nobles contacted the company via Instagram to explore the possibility of shipping a tray to the USA.
Senstec’s managing director Christopher Hackett said: “At first, we were uncertain about facilitating the tray delivery, but deeply touched by their story and feedback, we were determined to make it happen.
“As shower trays are relatively uncommon in the USA, it was a learning experience for all parties involved.”
The Senstec tray endured two snowstorms and was delivered using multiple methods of transportation modes including lorries, trains, and boats.
