DescriptionHaddonstone –Proud to be made in Britain
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 garden ornaments, including planters, statuary and fountains, is available in a number of styles, to enhance any outdoor space –from a small cottage garden to large formal grounds. Haddonstone also produces a range of architectural and interior features, including porticos, window surrounds and fireplaces, to add elegance to any building –whether contemporary, classical or traditional.
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.”
Haddonstone has also gained a reputation for creating custom designs for restoration projects and the company’s work can be seen at locations across the country. For example at Leazes Park, the first public park in Newcastle, Haddonstone created eagles, urns, a pair of massive stone lions and statues representing music and poetry, using only Victorian postcards as references. The company also replicated the badly eroded original fountain at Eton College in Windsor, and has been commissioned to provide planters and other designs for a number of historic and listed properties, including those owned by the National Trust.
