NEW UK HEADQUARTERS FOR ROCA GROUP
The SPACE team visited the newly launched Roca UK headquarters in Bardon, Leicestershire last week. The new Roca UK premises offers over 145,000 square foot of space and includes a dedicated warehouse, increased office and meeting room space, as well as extensive new showroom facilities for all Roca UK brands, under one roof.
Alan Dodds, UK Managing Director, Roca Group comments; “We are delighted to officially launch our new Roca UK headquarters. Both Roca and Laufen brands are growing strongly and the new site provides a tremendous opportunity to continue on this trajectory and accelerate our growth. It will also provide a central location for our trade and retail partners to come and experience the whole spectrum of Roca UK products. We have the best team in the industry and these new state-of-the-art facilities reflect our ambitious plans.”
The innovative new showroom offers one of the biggest bathroom showroom spaces in the UK and is designed to take visitors on a journey through the brands and products available. With over 40 collections on show including dedicated displays of each of the Roca UK brands. Visitors will be able to see:
Over 20 collections from Roca, including the eagerly-awaited Beyond collection, which has been created with the future in mind. Its smooth and sleek lines exude contemporary design whilst its rounded bath and WC provides a sense of the space-age. On the other side of the timeline, Roca is also showcasing Carmen, which pays tribute to the past with the redesign of an iconic model from Roca’s history.
14 collections from Swiss manufacturer Laufen, including the very latest designer bathroom collaborations such as the innovative Sonar by Patricia Urquiola, the iconic Kartell by Laufen and the very latest in contemporary style with the Val collection by Konstantin Grcic.
Armani/Roca. With this luxurious collection, Giorgio Armani once again shows his commitment to promoting comfort and wellbeing, expressing his vision of the bathroom environment through a combination of elements that allow maximum flexibility and adaptability. The result is a new versatile bathroom collection, which manages to be both contemporary and timeless, in accordance with Giorgio Armani’s design philosophy.
Cosmic; the contemporary style of this range, which was originally known for its stylish accessories, takes its inspiration from the industrial look and now includes furniture, basins and a new range of lighting and mirrors.
As well as the extensive showroom, the new site features a vast warehouse complete with 12 dock level loading doors, two level access loading doors and 150 per cent more pallet locations than in its previous UK base. This increased space means that Roca UK can service their national coverage of distributors, merchants and retailers and ensures efficient and fast delivery.
