Burberry opens Centre for Manufacturing Excellence

Share this page

In February 2020, we opened the doors to our new Burberry Centre for Manufacturing Excellence at our Castleford site in Yorkshire. Continuing our long-lasting investment in manufacturing, the new training facility is designed to nurture talent and protect the traditional, artisanal skills that underpin Yorkshire’s textile industry.

We are partnering with the UK Fashion and Textile Association to provide a bespoke suite of training opportunities for our own manufacturing teams as well as enabling new routes into our industry for the local community.

“We have created some of our most iconic products in Castleford for over 50 years. We firmly believe in protecting artisanal skills, nurturing talent and investing in British fashion manufacturing through programmes including the Burberry Centre for Manufacturing Excellence” said Lise Edwards-Warrener, VP Internal Manufacturing at Burberry.
