Burberry opens center for manufacturing excellence in the UK



Burberry seeks to nurture British talent. The British luxury company has opened a training center at its factory in Castleford, west of Yorkshire (United Kingdom), said the group in a statement. Burberry say its goal is to “nurture talent and protect the traditional, artisanal skills that underpin Yorkshire’s textile industry.” 


Burberry is committed to greater investment in the manufacturing business which will give greater durability to its garments. “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,” said Lise Edwards-Warrener, VP Internal Manufacturing at Burberry.


In this regard, the company is partnering with the UK Fashion and Textile Association to provide a set of training opportunities for their own manufacturing teams as well as enabling new routes in the industry for the local community.
