Burlington Stone, who were exhibiting for the first time, showcased their range of exquisite stone, for use internally and externally. The show proved the perfect setting to allow visitors to see the new Kirkstone stones in the Burlington Stone range. With the recent introduction of Kirkstone Brathay Blue/Black, Kirkstone Silver Green and Kirkstone Sea Green into the product portfolio, the colour range now includes eleven sumptuous stones and all eleven stones were beautifully presented on the floor of the stand, along with images of a number of landmark projects Burlington have been involved in, on the walls.
Together with the inclusion of products such as strip and square mosaics, exterior and interior cladding and walling, Burlington Stone were able to highlight the outstanding range of standard product lines and truly bespoke pieces, they are able to offer.
It was with mixed emotions that Burlington Stone thanked Terry Armistead, Production Manager, for his dedication to the business over the past 48 years and to wish him well in his retirement at a special party on Friday 5th May 2017. Having joined Burlington Stone at the age of 15, Terry has played a key role within the production facility at Kirkby-in-Furness. The vast knowledge and experience he has gained over the past 48 years, along with his “can-do” attitude means he will be greatly missed by colleagues and customers alike. Luckily, Terry has kindly agreed to continue to work for Burlington for a couple of days per week.
It is with delight that Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving has won the Landscaping Category at this year’s Natural Stone Awards 2016. Working together with Hardscape, based in Bolton, Burlington Stone supplied their Green natural stone for an integral part of the refurbishment of the Deansgate – Castlefield Metro Station project in Manchester.
Her Majesty The Queen has officially opened a new £15m National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art in Newmarket, where many of her own horses are trained and stabled.
Ten years of planning has gone into the new centre, which includes Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving in the internal and external walkways.
