Use of Burlington Stone within bespoke furniture is creating a piece of the Lake District in everyone's everyday environment. One such company has been using Burlington's Kirkby slate for a range of products.
Novocastrian is a collaboration between a designer, an architect and a metalworker who create bespoke furniture. Their craft is born of industry, of the manufacturing heritage of the North of England. The use of a carefully-curated range of Burlington’s Cumbrian slate permeates their work. The reinterpretation of even the most modest of materials, revealing their inherent beauty, is a key theme in their creative philosophy.
Novocastrian was awarded ‘Best New Designer 2015’ at the Northern Design Festival in Newcastle.
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.
