Europe’s leading shower designer and manufacturer, Roman, has further enhanced their manufacturing capabilities and capacity with a significant purchase of land and buildings.

This brings Roman’s overall space on the site to 400,000ft2. This futureproofs the company for strong growth, extra warehousing and an enhanced level of service to their customers.

Over the last six months Roman has increased their main shower enclosure manufacturing site from 90,000ft2 to 140,000ft2. The production lines were expanded from five to eight lines in the main factory to allow for the increased demand for Roman shower enclosures, wetroom panels and bath screens.

Adjoining its main site, Roman has rented two buildings for its solid surface shower tray manufacturing and Corian fabrication for bathroom structures, vanity units and basins. These buildings cover 24,000ft2.

Roman has now purchased further adjoining buildings. This more than doubles the space to a total of 56,000ft2. Importantly the surrounding land covers 160,000ft2 which allows for future expansions of both operations.

Purchasing of this new site will provide the company with flexibility to expand production as and when required. Major International hotel projects have contributed to the year-on-year growth for the business, both in the UK and abroad.

Roman has been designing and manufacturing showering solutions for over 35 years and employs over 240 people. The company currently export its products to 57 countries.

Managing Director David Osborne said: “Roman has seen a steady increase in demand for our products both within the UK and internationally and expanding our premises allows us the opportunity to continue our strong growth, whilst constantly enhancing our service levels, production capabilities and of course capacity.”
