Burleigh Pottery, the makers of iconic Burleigh Ware blue and white ceramics in England since 1851, and which also now incorporates Poole Pottery, has released figures today showing a revival of the business in the period since its acquisition by the Denby Holdings Ltd.

The Middleport Pottery buildings in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent which house Burleigh were purchased and renovated over the last three years by the Prince's Regeneration Trust, and Burleigh, the principal tenant, has experienced tremendous growth during that period.

Sebastian Lazell, CEO of Denby Holdings Ltd said: "We have increased our workforce at Middleport by 40 since the commencement of our partnership with The Prince's Regeneration Trust and sales, including significant exports, have increased by 77% in the same period."

Paul McGowan, CEO of Hilco Capital, owners of the group said: "The partnership with the Prince's Regeneration Trust has certainly helped spur the business to new heights and we are currently exploring ways in which we can expand our production capacity to meet the growing demand for our specialist hand-made products."
