Alstom will retain a number of its existing locations in the town and build the facility at the Redhill Business Park, with the aim to open it by the end of 2016, when the company’s UK Automation activities will move from its current location at its St Leonards site.

Terence Watson, Alstom’s UK President, said: “This is an exciting development for the Grid business which has been operating out of its existing premises for over half a century. The new facility will be state-of-the-art and will be fit for purpose, as well as better reflecting the high tech nature of our business.”

Staffordshire County Council’s economy leader Mark Winnington said: “Alstom is one of Staffordshire’s flagship companies and a global leader. To have it commit to Stafford and to the county in the long-term is fantastic news for everyone. Alstom will be the first company to move onto the county-council developed Redhill business park and it is exactly the type of company we want there. It is a major employer in one of our main sectors and further demonstrates this county as being a prime location for advanced manufacturing and engineering. This is a great way to end the year after so many economic successes in Staffordshire.”

Leader of Stafford Borough Council, Councillor Mike Heenan, said: “We have worked very closely with Alstom over a number of years to ensure their future in Stafford. So we are delighted that they have managed to find the site at Redhill’s which will meet their needs and secure their long term future and that of their employees. It is further proof of the attraction that our County Town has for leaders in the global engineering industry.”

Alstom in Stafford is a worldwide centre of excellence for the company in high voltage direct current (HVDC) and automation technologies. The teams have been at the centre of a number of major contract wins, including projects in India, Sweden and Germany.

Around 1,400 people work for Alstom’s Grid business in Stafford, with another 300 in the company’s Thermal Power unit, making the company the town’s largest private sector employer.
