Siemens creates new role to maximise benefits from Goole investment

Long-term employee Finbarr Dowling (Pictured above in the centre) has taken on the newly created position of localisation director for Siemens Mobility.

Finbarr has worked for Siemens for almost 30 years. Previously he was the customer service director for Siemens rolling stock as well as the project director for the development and construction of Siemens‘ £310 million offshore wind blade manufacturing, harbour and service facility in Hull.

In his new role, Finbarr will maximise the benefits from Siemens’ £200 million investment in a new train factory in Goole, East Yorkshire, for the local, regional and national economies.

Up to 700 skilled jobs in engineering and manufacturing are expected to be created at the planned factory. An additional 250 people will be employed during the plant’s construction and around 1,700 indirect jobs are expected to be created throughout the UK supply chain.

The first contract to be delivered from the site is expected to be the Inspiro London tube trains for Transport for London.
