Yesterday was a fantastic day for Roman, we were graced with a visit from HRH The Earl of Wessex KG KCVO. He came along to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary in style. The visit was originally scheduled for the 2nd December, but due to the freak snow we had around that time, it was called off at the last minute. Thankfully this time everything went to plan and His Royal Highness arrived promptly at 2.55pm.
Beginning in the showroom, HRH was shown the finished Roman enclosures.
The tour then moved onto our Tray manufacturing plant – HRH was shown how we develop our own shower trays, from direct cutting our own moulds, through to casting, through to hand finishing every single Roman Stone solid surface tray.
The next stop was our R&D team, where our Design Manger and the team were presented.
Following the tour all Roman staff gathered in the presentation area where HRH met 4 long serving employees. Chairman, Gerry Osborne gave a short speech to thank employees for their commitment to the company and to thank HRH for attending. HRH was then asked to give a short speech and unveil the commemorative plaque.
The staff were all really impresses and amused by His Royal Highness’s speech which was funny and engaging – he created a fantastic atmosphere and everybody clapped and cheered as the plaque was unveiled.
