Day one of Project 252, the Roman factory’s first day back.

Roman Launches Project 252

Published:  10 January, 2012

COUNTY DURHAM: Shower designer and manufacturer, Roman, will be undertaking a project throughout 2012 to document a year in the life of the Company through photographs. Officially titled Project 252, due to their being 252 working days throughout 2012, they will publish a photo of every working day throughout the year.

The photos are set to showcase all aspects of the business, from shower enclosure manufacture on the shop floor, through to export meetings all around the world, and from production in their solid surface and tray manufacturing facility, to their sales force and technical representatives out in the field.

The whole company will be getting involved and posting photos to truly document a year in the life of a shower manufacturer.

David Osborne, managing director at Roman, commented: “We are really excited about Project 252 – everybody in the company is keen to get involved and have their own department highlighted. We are also keen for customers and friends of Roman to be involved and will be asking our customers to send in their own pictures for inclusion on the website.

"These can be anything from their own Roman displays in showrooms, through to completed hotel bathrooms, from our fitters at work on projects and installing displays, through to business meetings with key clients and Factory visits to our North East head office. We’d really like customers and retail partners to get in touch with their suggested photos.”
