Leading UK cast stone company Haddonstone
is bucking the trend set by many of the country’s manufacturing industries, by continuing to make its products here in England.
Instead of moving production to faraway shores, Haddonstone
manufactures all of its designs at a purpose-built facility in Northamptonshire. The company’s extensive standard collection of cast stone architectural features - including columns, balustrading, window surrounds and quoins - has been specified on a wide range of projects around the UK, from large shopping centres to private houses. Haddonstone
also produces a range of garden and landscape ornaments, including planters, fountains and statuary.
Marketing director Simon Scott said: “Britain has always been synonymous with manufacturing excellence and as market leaders we are keen to remain true to our heritage. While many of our competitors import some or all of their designs, we feel justifiably proud of our UK manufacturing base and feel we can still maintain a competitive edge by remaining here.”
has also gained a reputation for creating custom designs on both new build and restoration projects. The company’s work can be seen at locations across the country, including the Trafford shopping centre in Manchester, the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham and Cornwall’s Eden Project. Working from badly eroded original stonework, the company also created custom designs as part of the restoration of the Grade II* listed Victorian spa in Scarborough, Eton College in Windsor and many other settings.
