Siemens Mobility to build state-of-the-art factory in Chippenham

Posted on by in News

Siemens Mobility is set to build a cutting-edge rail infrastructure manufacturing, digital engineering and research & development (R&D) centre in Chippenham, Wiltshire.

The company said the investment highlights its commitment to innovation, sustainability, excellence, and meeting the growing demand for rail infrastructure in Britain and worldwide.

The new facility, set to replace the existing factory in 2026, will be vital for Siemens Mobility’s future projects in rail technology, providing an efficient site to build the next generation of conventional and digital rail signalling and control systems. The transition, including the transfer of all local staff, totalling approximately 800, will not cause any interruption in production.

“Siemens Mobility has been transforming rail, travel, and transport in Britain for over a century. We are pioneers in digital signalling technology, provide leading service solutions and every fourth passenger train in the UK is from Siemens Mobility. Our dedicated team of 5,500 UK employees is committed to delivering top-quality transportation solutions, in Britain, for Britain”, said Karl Blaim, Managing Director and Chief Financial Officer of Siemens Mobility.”

Siemens Mobility’s new Chippenham site, located south of Langley Park at SouthPoint Business Park, will feature an office built to a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard. The production and warehouse areas will meet strict sustainability criteria, evaluated across various categories including energy, water, waste, health, well-being, or materials. This promotes structures that are more sustainable and beneficial for society and the environment.
