J. R install UK’s first dedicated sintered stone production line

J. Rotherham, one of the oldest and most respected stone masonry companies in the United Kingdom, continues its advancement in technology by installing the UK’s first dedicated sintered stone production line.

Installed between November 2014 and June 2015, J. Rotherham’s investment includes a new Breton CNC saw, NC300 CNC router and a new 5 axis Breton Classica waterjet, which is the most precise machine available on the UK market. Designed specifically for cutting sintered stone slabs, the high pressure water jet creates a precise, clean cut like no other.

Due to the tensile strength of sintered stone, J. Rotherham’s new water jet method is especially valuable when mitring high quality worktops for built up edges or when specialist shaping is required.

A worthy addition to its 17 acre state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Yorkshire, J. Rotherham’s integration of this production line is to primarily create increased capacity whilst achieving the best finish across the newly launched Lapitec and Neolith sintered stone worktops.

“We are extremely excited to continue pushing the boundaries of surface design, especially now having these new stones to work with. Our world class workforce built up of four generations has given us a reputation for creating some of the most innovative worktop designs on the market, with Lapitec and Neolith being our latest and most technologically advanced.”
