Shower manufacturer Roman has invested in its manufacturing facility with a “significant purchase of land and buildings” to expand its operations.
Over the last six months, the company has increased its main shower enclosure manufacturing site from 90,000sq ft to 140,000sq ft.
The manufacturer has also expanded its production lines from five to eight in the main factory, to “allow for increased demand for shower enclosures, wetroom panels and bath screens”.
Roman has rented two buildings, totalling 24,000sq ft, next to its main site for its solid surface shower tray manufacturing and Corian fabrication for bathroom structures, vanity units and basins.
The company has also purchased adjoining buildings to more than double the space for each, totalling 56,000sq ft, as well as the 160,000sq ft of surrounding land to cover future expansions, bringing Roman’s overall space on-site to 400,000sq ft.
“Roman has seen a steady increase in demand for our products both within the UK and internationally,” said Roman managing director David Osborne.
“Expanding our premises allows us the opportunity to continue our strong growth, whilst constantly enhancing our service levels, production capabilities and of course capacity.”
