With the heat from the Texan sun, after 30 years a lot of natural stones would be starting to show their age, however Burlington Stone’s Kirkby roofing slate still looks as good as it did when it was installed at a Dallas, USA, shopping mall back in the 80’s.
Burlington Stone’s superior technical characteristics ensure that the stone can withstand the toughest of environments and therefore can stand the test of time.
In addition, Burlington prides itself on its reputation for fine craftsmanship and first rate customer service, which has made them renowned amongst architects and designers alike for providing some of the finest and most durable natural stones throughout the world.
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.
The Role: This position is a full-time role providing support to the Sales and Customer Service department and is based at the Company’s Head Office at Kirkby-in-Furness Quarry.
