Meet Some Of The Team

Brian Burn
Managing Director

Brian has been involved with Blue Diamond from the tender age of 12.

Since starting out Brian served his time as a fitter turner who was always dedicated to his trade, he usually works extremely long weeks & he even worked the Saturday morning of his wedding day from 06:00 to 11:00!

Brian took control of BDMT in 2002 and the company has since grown and developed into one of the leading machine tool rebuilders.

Being extremely dedicated to the expansion of Blue Diamond Brian recently opened a new 45,000 sq foot showroom to become one of the largest machinery Stockists in the UK.

All this has took its toll and he now does cycling in his spare time to keep fit, the coast to coast being his favourite jaunt. All this cycling helps to raise funds for his grandson Jenson’s C.F. Charity Fund.




Andrew Burn
Production Director

Andrew being the next generation to follow his father is also time served and gained a degree, and is now involved with the running of Blue Diamond.

Andrew has been here for over 9 year now and It is hoped his youth and new vigour will push the company into new avenues and take the company forward for a long time to come.
