Michael Poultney

Managing Director, Albion Stone
United Kingdom

Albion Stone is a family run company that has been supplying Portland stone for projects in London for almost a century and quarrying Portland stone for nearly 50 years. 

When Michael Poultney became Managing Director in 1991, he relocated the factory to Portland alongside the quarries and, to secure more reserves for the future, switched from quarrying to the more environmentally sensitive mining.  The company has expanded to be a major stone mining operation that is one of the largest and most technically advanced in the country. 

Albion Stone produces some of the most environmentally sensitive building products in the world, and this year launched its new Heritage Portland Stone Bricks which can reduce the embodied carbon of external walls by up to 75% when compared to clay-fired bricks.
