Craftsmanship & Technology
A revival of craftsmanship combined with cutting edge technology
J. Rotherham have trained hundreds of masons over the history of the company, and many of our most reliable and talented team members, having been trained directly by Joe Rotherham Snr, are still with us today after decades of service.
Traditional stone working techniques form an essential process in the creation of each of our fireplace designs.
The use of artistic ability, good design and an excellence of execution is a feature of all our work, whether this is a unique hand carving, measuring the correct proportions, or truing in the moulding details across different pieces of the fireplace.
To achieve the competitive edge that creates the greatest value for our customers, we have maintained an investment in technology that is unique within our industry.
We were the first company in the industry to introduce CNC technology in 1988 and were at the forefront of innovation once again with the first robotic stone working machinery to enter the UK in 2008. This investment in technology, the largest of its kind in the UK, ensures every fireplace is manufactured to exacting standards.
