Commenting on his new role, Sidhu said: “I am hugely looking forward to taking on my new role and maximising the opportunities ahead for the Roca brand. 2021 will be a record year for the Roca Group in the UK and we have exciting plans for growth in 2022. With a strong team, innovative new products and major new initiatives to launch, we are set for an encouraging and positive year.”
