Siemens invests a further £1 million in UK mechanical drives

Siemens invests a further £1 million in UK mechanical drives
Siemens is investing an additional £1 million in its Mechanical Drives factory at Leeds, to expand its capabilities in servicing rail components and in assembling a new range of geared motors.

The investment is an increase in Siemens' commitment to UK manufacturing and servicing and comes not long after Siemens announced the new factory planned for Hull that will specialise in wind turbine assembly.

The Leeds investment will enable Siemens to service an increasing number of onshore and offshore wind turbines as well as rail motors, couplings, gearboxes and other components, and will in time mean an additional 50 personnel. A total of five people have already been recruited as part of the first investment phase, which focuses on rail motor servicing. The Leeds factory has service contracts of up to 30 years for rail component work, helping to secure the workforce's future for many years to come.

The Leeds factory will also be the UK base for a new range of highly efficient geared motors called Simogear, which widens Siemens' bandwidth in competing with other major European geared motor manufacturers. The site also recently achieved zero waste being sent to landfill, another milestone under general manager Simon Nadin and his team.
