The centre joins another under construction in Goole to serve all 14 of Siemens Mobility's UK depots. Kettering's 100,000 sq ft space will store parts for train operators in southern England. It will stock everything from bogies and wheelsets to nuts and bolts, supporting depots in Bedford, Northampton, and more.

Sambit Banerjee, Joint UK CEO for Siemens Mobility said:

“Once again, I’m proud to open a new Siemens Mobility facility in the UK.

Bringing together our distribution and logistics capabilities allows us to focus on delivering the best service for our train maintenance activities and keep availability and reliability for passengers at the forefront of what we do, all whilst driving down our logistics carbon footprint by 30%.

Our continued investment is a testament to our long-term commitment to the UK, leveraging the imagination and ambition of our 5,500 UK employees to transform rail travel and transport.”

The Mayor of Kettering, Councillor Emily Fedorowycz said:

“It was a great pleasure to open the new Siemens Mobility warehouse in Kettering and meet some of the new employees keeping the UK trains moving. It is fantastic that Siemens are bringing new jobs to Kettering, whilst driving sustainable solutions for train maintenance facilities local to the Midlands.”

The new Distribution and Logistics Centre will build on Siemens Mobility’s commitment to sustainability and digitalisation by ensuring materials are only ordered when needed and stored closer to the point of use. The facility will use intelligent and innovative storage and transport planning systems, which will support better planning and give greater visibility across the supply chain. 

This announcement follows Siemens Mobility wider investments in the UK, which most recently include a £200 million Goole Rail Village and £100 million in a new signalling and control systems factory in Chippenham.
