A manufacturer of high pressure laminates is to fly the flag for Britain as it celebrates its centenary.

Axiom® by Formica Group manufactures kitchen worktops, splashbacks and upstands at its bonding facility in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.

From this month all marketing literature featuring its Axiom range will incorporate the Made in Britain logo.

Marketing coordinator Stephanie McFarlane said: “Formica Group is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2013 and we thought it was the perfect time to show how proud we are to still be making Axiom by Formica Group in Britain.

“Importantly, it also means British kitchen manufacturers choosing Axiom worktops in their designs can offer a complete Made in Britain message for the customer.”

There has been a strong resurgence of the Made in Britain message following the successful 2012 London Olympic Games. More than 1,000 manufacturers have signed up to use the logo.
