Mr Bernie Coward has today retired from Burlington Stone after 49 years service. His wealth of knowledge and experience will be greatly missed by the company.
Over the years, Bernie has worked in the production yard and has learnt to “read” our beautiful natural stone from the heart of the Lake District. This ability to "read" the stone has been invaluable when selecting the stone with particular markings and shading for specific projects. This skill by our craftsmen is learnt over time and passed down through the generations.
All those at Burlington Stone wish him a very happy retirement.
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.
