Roman has received The Queens Award for Enterprise for International Trade. The company has been rewarded for a substantial and sustained increase in export earnings over three consecutive 12-month periods, to a level which is outstanding. The Queens Award for Enterprise is the most prestigious corporate accolade that a UK business can win.
Roman designs and manufactures shower enclosures and solid surface products for the bathroom at its headquarters in County Durham, and also has three manufacturing plants.
The Queens Award is made on the advice of the Prime Minister after examination of applications by an Advisory Committee composed of leading individuals from industry, commerce, trade unions and government.
David Osborne, managing director, said: “Our sustained investment, patience and belief over the last ten years in developing our international markets has proved a great success and for this to be recognised in such a way is a very proud achievement.”
