Burlington Stone’s new landscaping product portfolio was very well received at the ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects) 2013 Expo and Annual Meeting. On a stand together with British company, Marshalls Group, Burlington showcased their Cumbrian Black, Westmorland Green and Baycliff Limestone dimensional paving proposition with a number of different finishes available. The British natural stones ensure both aesthetic beauty as well as superior technical properties.
With more than 6,000 visitors to the show, this exhibition allows Burlington’s brand and product offering to be presented to a wide audience of Landscape Architects in the US. Already the stand is creating interest with enquiries being followed up for those interested in learning more about what Burlington has 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.
