Irwin, the company’s former production director, will be responsible for the day-to-day operation, whilst overseeing the strategic direction of Burlington’s business interests. Reporting to him, Williams will help deliver Burlington’s vision for the future.

Irwin joined Burlington in 2001 as production manager and was promoted to production director in 2003, when he assumed overall responsibility for Burlington’s production department.

He joins Burlington from Natural Paving, where he was sales and marketing director.

He says: “We also intend to purvey how versatile the product is, whether used for roofing, flooring, cladding, landscaping, or as an interior finishing material within the kitchen and bathroom. And finally, emphasis will be applied to Burlington’s environmental and green credentials; such focus covering the sympathetic manner in which material is quarried and processed, both of which deliver a reduced carbon footprint when compared to most imported stones.”

Duncan Peake, Burlington’s chief executive and board member of parent company, the Holker Estates Group said: “We are extremely excited about the new appointments, as we have every confidence that both Rob and Nick will be instrumental in leading Burlington into a new and increasingly dynamic era.
