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.
This is a new role, based at the Company’s Head Office at Kirkby-in-Furness Quarry.
You will lead and manage the production operations within budget to meet customer standards. You will ensure that safety, quality, cost and delivery requirements are met, implementing modern manufacturing principles and managing continuous improvement. You will build effective working relationships and develop an enthusiastic, motivated and flexible team.
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.
