  8. Siemens rail factory plans: Goole 'offers many things'

    Bosses at Siemens say Goole is the right place to build a £200m rail factory with the potential to create 700 jobs.

    Siemens train factory

    Siemens has signed a long-term lease on a 67-acre site in Goole to build a facility manufacturing trains for UK operators.

    Gordon Wakeford, managing director of Siemens Mobility, says the firm has been "scouring the country" looking for the right place to build a factory and Goole "offers us many things".

    Meanwhile, Vernon Barker, managing director of Siemens Rail Systems, says one of the main reasons to choose Goole is that the town has the space.

    "When you're choosing where to put a factory of this size, it's about the equivalent of 40 football pitches, it's a big site," says Mr Barker.

    Quote Message: Goole itself has a history of manufacturing and engineering and they're the sort of skills we'll need to employ in our workforce." from Vernon Barker Managing Director, Siemens Rail Systems
