We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded The Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
We announced on the 21st April, her Majesty the Queen’s birthday that Roman won The Queens Award. We won the award as we have shown substantial and sustained increase in export earnings over three consecutive 12 month periods, to an outstanding level.
The Queens Award for Enterprise is the most prestigious corporate accolade that a UK business can win.
The Queens Award is on the advice of the Prime Minister after examination of applications by an Advisory Committee composed at leading individuals from industry, commerce, trade unions and government.
We are very excited for the ceremony that will be held at Roman Headquarters, where all staff can be involved in the presentation, which will be made by The Queen’s representative, the Lord Lieutenant of County Durham.
We have achieved such a strong position in the market place by consistent and creative product innovation, which has led to significant growth across all UK Market sectors and in the past 5 years strong growth in International Markets. Roman has become strong in key International Markets with our manufacturing capability and wide range of products.
Our local MP, Phil Wilson, commented on Roman winning The Queens Award for Enterprise: “Roman winning the Queen’s Award is brilliant news for the business and the people who work there. The Award is also excellent news for Newton Aycliffe, County Durham and the North East of England. The local community in Aycliffe can be really proud another company on the business park, the largest in the North East, is helping to put the town on the map.”
We are delighted to have won The Queens Award for Enterprise in International Trade and we are applying the emblem to all of our literature, website and social media platforms to showcase it proudly everywhere we can.
