Terry Armistead, 64, Production Manager at Burlington Stone, lives at Kirkby-in-Furness

As Terry prepares to retire from Burlington Stone – part of The Holker Group – he shares some of the highlights from a long and successful career.


Terry is looking ahead to his retirement and plans to keep himself busy in Cumbria.

“I run a small holding with my two sons and farm sheep,” he said. “I also enjoy walking in the hills with wife. I’m always busy with jobs around the house, so I’m never bored. I’ve always got something to do in Cumbria.

“As I prepare for retirement, I’d encourage others to choose a career at Burlington Stone. It’s a lovely environment to work in, you’ve got a finished product that’s very different and the skills you’ll pick up are second-to-none.

“As long as you want to work hard, Burlington Stone is a great place to work.

“I’ve never felt the need to go elsewhere as I’ve been able to progress through the company while being happy with what I do and well looked after.”
