Joe Phillips is a U.S. Navy Submarine veteran and earned his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Nevada. His professional experience spans pharmaceutical research and development, commercial and industrial plant construction project management, as well as IT and telecommunication sales.
During a vacation to Australia in 2006, Joe crossed paths with some engineers who introduced him to the idea of using popular industrial trench drains in an indoor and residential setting. Joe was so inspired that, upon his return to the States, he consulted with architects, engineers, contractors, designers and specification writers to adapt these concepts for the North American market. He founded LUXE Linear Drains, LLC in 2009.
LUXE provides linear shower drains, tile insert drains and other specialty products manufactured to deliver stylish, high performance design elements for residential projects and commercial projects, including hospitality and healthcare applications, as well as outdoor living.
