Seeing new brands created within the Group is a phenomenal experience, showcasing the growth of our company.

Solid Bash establishment is a natural next step and an exciting new page in our 11-year history. With numerous outstanding clients already working with Room 8 Group, and so many potential partners we aim to cooperate with, I am sure that Solid Bash has a great and promising future.
