Burnetts was founded in 1967 in Northampton, UK by Mr John Burnett. Back then we specialised in compression moulding rubber seals and gaskets and used our expertise to formulate compounds for specfic applications and environments.
Our intumescent rubber compound was developed for use in hazardous environments where transit seals minimise the risk of fire spreading through bulkhead apertures. These products remain in use today as changes in health & safety legislation has broadened the range of applications around the world.
This is only one of many compound formulations we have developed for specific applications and we continue to offer our customers bespoke solutions that meet stringent performance criteria.
Everything we do at Burnetts is governed by a strong set of core values – this principle has been the same ever since the company was founded in 1967.
As our rubber moulding business continues to evolve and grow, these five simple, yet powerful values remain constant. They shape the culture and define the character of our business.
These principles continually guide our decision-making as well as our interactions with our customers, our suppliers and each other.
We are committed to:
- Excellence in everything we do
- Creating value and exceeding our customers’ expectations
- Providing an environment of trust, respect and teamwork for our employees
- Upholding high standards of ethical behaviour and integrity
- Honest and open communication
