    Roman, the UK’s leading shower designer and manufacturer celebrated 25 years of manufacturing and supplying innovative showering solutions to the UK market in style. The celebrations included a visit from HRH The Earl of Wessex KG KCVO.The 25th anniversary celebrations took place at their County Durham based Headquarters on Thursday 14th April. His Royal Highness was formally welcomed to Roman by Chairman Gerald Osborne. In addition, local MPs, key trade press and local press joined in with the celebrations. Guests were given a showroom and factory tour, and also given an insight into Roman’s operational and design processes.

    Roman has gone from strength to strength since it was initially founded in 1985 by Gerald Osborne. In 1985, Gerry launched his first range of multi coloured bath screens matching the bathroom colours of the time. Since then Roman have diversified into many other areas and in 2001 a £1.2million factory extension was formally opened by the Prime Minister, Rt Hon Tony Blair MP. To add flexibility to their research and development and to ensure control of their tray supply, Roman opened a Tray Plant in 2005 to manufacture solid surface level access trays. In July 2009, Roman launched Roman at Home, a collection of bathroom and home accessories which has been a great success and is continuing to grow as the Brand awareness increases.

    Roman to this day still remains a family owned business and is now the largest UK shower manufacturing facility employing over 150 staff across two sites in County Durham and Daventry. Roman’s extensive range now encompasses high quality shower enclosures, contemporary wetroom panels, ingenious bath screens, low level shower trays, state-of-the-art water delivery systems and a range of accessories. Roman offers something for every sector, from an affordable price sensitive range, through to the more exclusively designed and luxurious bathrooms.

    Roman’s Chairman, Gerald Osborne comments; “We are exceptionally proud to have a Member of the Royal Family come and share this 25 year milestone with us. We are delighted that Roman has continued to grow and transform into the leading shower manufacturer that it is today.”
