A manufacturing site for concrete tiles and fittings

At the Burton manufacturing facility, we are responsible for around 40% of the company’s concrete roofing products. There are three main lines and two ancillary lines for manufacturing high quality concrete tiles and fittings, plus hand-made concrete fittings and fixing pack assembly.

We focus on being a safe, lean manufacturer and there is a very positive culture on health and safety, quality and environmental issues. We also want to be the best! With the focus on continuous improvement, one recent initiative has been to send Managers and Team Leaders to other sites to look at 5S initiatives and continuous improvement techniques.

  • This is a real team environment – a manufacturing team working together and encompassing a wide range of skill sets including electrical, mechanical and production.
  • We are all committed to producing a great product and you will be encouraged to come forward with ideas and suggestions.
  • You will receive training that is relevant to your role. For example, if you are a team leader, you’ll receive training in management techniques and attend IOSH training courses.
  • Time is also allotted for training with an emphasis on health, safety and environmental issues.
  • If you join us for production, you will receive training in more than one job in your area, helping you develop your skills and enjoy more variety in your role as well as enabling you to provide more flexible support.
