UK MADE: Roman
There has never been a better time to buy British
Roman, Europe and the UK’s largest shower designer and manufacturer are proud to be able to offer you the certainty of supply and price in a very uncertain world. As strong advocates for the official Made in Britain organisation and with every aspect of manufacturing taking place in Britain, UK Made products are at the heart of everything Roman does.
Product Quality and Origin
The COVID crisis has clearly made people ask questions about their supply chains; the certainty of supply; product provenance; and seems to have renewed interest in British quality and ethics. Roman offers an unrivalled fully service backed Lifetime Guarantee, excellent product quality and competitiveness in all channels – and of course, fully certified CE and UKCA products.
The absence of origin marking on construction products means many products are marketed as “designed in Britain”, however it is not always obvious to consumers what country of origin a product has. Roman are proud to use the Made in Britain mark on all products and packaging as it is not only a declaration of product origin but also differentiates from competitors who import rather than manufacture in the UK.
In the post Brexit era, the real issue for the UK bathroom industry is the huge and ongoing increases in the cost of importing finished goods due to the knock-on effects of COVID-19 on world shipping. Importers, suppliers and distributors of imported finished goods will be passing on unprecedented price increases in to the market as there is no alternative if the business model imports finished goods from China.
Roman are increasingly focussed on environmental credentials and have a strong emphasis on the Circular Economy – with all aluminium and packaging manufactured using 100% recycled material before it is used in the manufacturing process. The growing impact of carbon footprinting, the circular economy and sustainability is constantly growing in importance for Roman as a British manufacturer and is a clear differential against imported finished goods from China; and carbon footprinting is playing more on the minds of hotels and housebuilders – moving higher up their purchasing agenda. Roman is in the process of Carbon Zero accreditation.
David Osborne, CEO at Roman, commented:
“Made in Britain is not just an important marque that we use – it is key to our success. We are very capability driven across the whole business and this gives us a huge competitive advantage in the hospitality sector. We can rapidly design and manufacture complicated bespoke mock up rooms with specialist finishes and clearly understand the timescales involved with major projects. That is why we are a trusted partner to so many key Brands in the sector.”
