Shower designer and manufacturer Roman has welcomed Andrew Griffith, the new minister for exports, to its headquarters in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.
The visit involved a tour of Roman’s 400,000sq ft manufacturing facilities, including Roman’s three factories, showroom and testing facilities.
All Roman’s manufacturing takes place at its HQ – the company has three manufacturing plants; the first is for shower enclosures, bath screens and wetrooms; the second is for solid surface fabrication of basins, vanity units and bathroom structures with case goods and furniture integrated into designs; and the third is for moulding solid surface shower trays. The manufacturer also has established subsidiaries in Ireland and Malaysia.
Currently Roman has supplied products for projects in 72 markets worldwide from County Durham. The company recently won the Queen’s Award for International Trade, for a second time.
