Rik said: “I’m looking forward to supporting our branches across the UK to make sure we are delivering the highest quality plumbing, heating and bathroom products to customers. 

“Right now, our industry is in a pivotal period, with numerous regulations either changing or being introduced and exciting product innovations happening all the time. 

“It’s been great to meet with our suppliers, who are proactively telling us how they have prepared for the incoming Part L and Part G Building Regulation changes and beyond. 

“This is something that our customers will need our support on and is a big focus for us right now. 

“Of course, sustainability is crucial to us too - that is the way the industry is heading, so we’re aiming to partner with people who are committed to that. 

“That way we can support our branches to be as strong as they possibly can be and in turn, meet our customer's needs.”
