Project 252 - Year of Roman in Photos 2012
Part of celebrating our long standing British history we're undertaking a year long project throughout 2012 called Project 252. There are 252 working days in 2012 and set out to document a year in the life of Roman Ltd from sales managers on the road to radio interviews in our head office, and from our showroom in Roman Asia to the production lines in our factory.
