In line with new legislation coming into force on 1st July 2013, Burlington Stone will be ensuring that their product proposition conforms with the new CE Marking Legislation, which states that the stone needs a Certificate of Origin and up to date technical test data.
The introduction of CE Marking on building products is taking place as part of the continuing efforts of Europe to harmonise standards to ensure a level playing field is achieved across countries in the European Union. As a result, all stone masonry companies supplying the building industry will have to put CE marks on any finished stonework, which is produced to a European Standard.
The Natural Stone Specialist publication has issued the following CE Marking advise in an article dated 16th June 2013. For full details, please follow the link below:
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.

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.
