Roca's major new investment programme

Published:  16 March, 2011

Uk: Roca UK will be the recipient of considerable additional investment from the Roca Group in 2011 and beyond.

At a time when the bathroom industry as a whole is still feeling the effects of the economic downturn, this initiative together with the scheduled opening of the Roca London Gallery later this year (located next to the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour and designed by Zaha Hadid) provide an enormous morale boost for the UK and a real opportunity to drive further growth in the market.

This new investment will total £8m, and Roca’s first priority will be to increase the sales force with the intention of nearly doubling it in size, creating a number of new and exciting job opportunities.

Alan Dodds, managing director, Roca UK, comments, “This is a pivotal moment in the history of Roca UK. To say we are pleased and excited has to be the understatement of the year. We have always believed in the potential of Roca and this new investment allows us to properly capitalise on any and all opportunities to expand our business. We are currently planning our strategy for this additional budget and our first step is people.”
