We are developing a state-of-the-art technology centre and training academy in Widnes that will bring jobs and skills to the North West of England and benefits to the whole of the UK.
Our new Widnes site will create high quality manufacturing jobs and a wide range of training opportunities.
Yes, I know this has been done zillions of times, but I wanted a clean, maintainable, reusable solution, not just a proof of concept.
Alstom has an impressive history in the UK dating back to the dawn of the railway, and we have been involved in some of this country's most significant and innovative rail transportation infrastructure such as HS1, Manchester Metrolink, Network Rail’s Signalling and electrification systems, Nottingham Tram and half the trains on the London Underground.
We provide world-class development and training facilities for our employees and our industry partners.
From Train Scanner, our world-leading virtual train health checker, to Appitrack, the fastest track laying machine in the world, our engineers are helping to make Britain's railways better.
Our signalling and electrifcation activities are nationwide and are delivering the next generation of technology to help improve timetables and ensure safety on the railway whether on projects or the installed asset sacross the country.
As a sustainable business by nature, we pride ourselves on delivering a wide range of innovative and environmentally friendly technologies and solutions. We will balance community, economic and environmental aspects through the development and implementation of Alstom UK&I Sustainability Strategy which has 10 Focus Areas centred on our global four pillar Sustainability and CSR Policy.
