Standard of Excellence
By Ilyne Hayes
When talking to Bill Daubmann, owner of MY Shower Door and MY Architectural Glass, it becomes apparent why his companies are so successful. His enthusiasm, positive outlook and energy are uplifting and infectious, and serve to motivate those around him to live up to the standard of excellence that he places on himself and the products and services he produces.
“We have hit two milestones,” Bill proudly related. “We have just installed our 100,000th shower door, and we have just received 2,500 five-star ratings on Google Reviews!” Perhaps those milestones are part of the reason MY Shower Door was named by the National Glaziers Association as the #1 Shower Door company in America and listed by Glass Magazine as #38 in the top 50 Glaziers of 2022 (which includes all forms of heavy glass manufacturing) in the country.
Bill has more reason to be excited and proud about the success of MY Shower Door. After starting the company in Naples with just three family members in 2003, he has expanded throughout Florida, building a state-of-the-art factory/showroom/main office in Fort Myers. MY Shower Door, along with MY Architectural Glass, currently employ 185 carefully trained and hard-working Floridians. With nine MY Shower Door showrooms to date, and the newest prototype MY Architectural Glass showroom in Naples, their growth continues, adding affiliates in several other states.
MY Shower Door’s incredible growth and success developed through Bill Daubmann’s determination to hit the trifecta of the pyramid to success, which gives customers the best quality in a timely manner, and at a reasonable price. Fabricating their own glass and designing their own proprietary hardware allows for complete quality control and avoids supply chain delays. Installing their own manufactured products eliminates the middleman and allows MY Shower Door to offer competitive pricing to their customers.
This family-owned business, which includes wife, Donna, and sons, Keith and Doug, does not believe in resting on their laurels, and instead chooses to be a leader in the industry by developing advanced and forward-looking products such as Ultra Clear glass, which has a very low lead content that eliminates the greenish hue seen in most other frameless shower doors.
They developed an innovative sliding shower door, MY Double Glide Ultra, that is made with the Ultra Clear glass, not just for the doors, but the railing as well. They also designed special rollers that make it easier for the homeowner to use. MY Double Glide Ultra gives any bathroom a bright, contemporary look that shows off the beauty of the shower’s tile, with the least amount of exposed metal.
MY Shower Door’s standard of excellence includes specialized training for their installation technicians, who must get certified in an intensive course by the full-time trainers at MY Shower Door University.
Their standard of excellence extends into their web presence, as they recently created a new website that is easier to navigate, details their product line, offers a live chat during working hours, and has tons of photos of beautifully installed shower doors that are certain to spark an idea for your bathroom.
