Siemens Mobility breaks ground on Goole Rail Village project

Siemens Mobility has announced their latest expansion project at the Goole Rail Village: the development of a new regional materials and logistics warehouse.

The new site at Goole, alongside another warehouse at Kettering in the East Midlands, will store materials for Siemens Mobility’s train manufacturing and maintenance locations across the United Kingdom.

This latest addition to the Goole Rail Village further expands the sites portfolio of services and allows us to respond to customer needs even more quickly and effectively. Having two dedicated warehouses will reduce travel miles for train parts needed at depots helping to lower the carbon footprint, supporting the company’s goal to decarbonise operations by 2030. Siemens Mobility trains make up almost a quarter of UK passenger trains with maintenance locations from Central Scotland down to the South East of England.

Siemens Mobility is partnering with Trebor Developments and long-term Yorkshire based partner GMI Construction to build the 94,841 sq. ft warehouse set to open in the summer of 2024.

To mark the beginning of construction, Siemens Mobility hosted their partners alongside local MPs Andrew Percy and David Davis, inviting them to break-ground on the new site on Tom Pudding Way.

Sambit Banerjee, for Siemens Mobility said: “This is a further expansion and investment into our Rail Village at Goole. Our partnership with Trebor and GMI Construction continues to embed our commitment to a local supply chain and supporting the economy.

“Bringing together our warehouse capabilities in one location serving our depots in the north, and another at Kettering for the south, allows us to focus on ensuring our depots can deliver the best service for the trains maintenance keeping availability and reliability at the forefront of what we do. This is another way we are actively focused on transforming the everyday for our customers and passengers.”

The Goole based Materials and Logistics warehouse will join the newly opened 102,500 sq ft warehouse in Kettering, further increasing Siemens Mobility’s significant UK footprint. These new modern facilities will service all Siemens Mobility’s rolling stock maintenance locations across the UK and create more than 40 direct roles including apprenticeship and intern roles.
