GMI, working on behalf of Siemens Mobility, has delivered a brand new train manufacturing plant and supply chain rail village in Goole, in East Yorkshire.
New Piccadilly line tube and future main line trains are to be built on Humberside in this very facility that GMI has constructed. The scale to accommodate a large development and, crucially, ready access to the skilled workforce needed to build and operate the factory – are two decisive reasons why Siemens chose GMI to deliver this project in East Yorkshire.
We’ve constructed a Siemens site for this global brand. The scheme, which is now a fully-fledged rail factory, was a key pillar in the levelling up agenda that GMI has been central to.
With an investment potential of £200 million, this new factory could create as many as 700 skilled jobs in engineering and manufacturing – as well as employing an additional 250 people during the construction phase. What’s more an estimated 1,700 indirect jobs can be expected throughout the UK supply chain.
GMI has played it’s part with over 70% of our workforce coming from Yorkshire. This is a site built by Yorkshire for London and a true example of what levelling up Britain really means.
