Rupert Matthews, who is one the Members of the European Parliament for the East Midlands has visited the Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery site in Lincoln. The visit came about after Rupert read an article about Siemens investing £35m on expanding their Lincoln base. The investment will allow Siemens to relocate the Small Gas Turbine parts and engine storage into a state-of-the-art 7,000 square metre facility. The new Global Service Operations Centre has recently been completed and the 40 employees and current activities will be moving to the new site in the next few months.
During his visit, Rupert was shown around by Neil Corner, Managing Director of Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery. He told Rupert about the future plans for the site in Lincoln.
Following the visit, Rupert commented:
“Today’s visit to Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery site in Lincoln was incredibly interesting and I was encouraged to hear about the plans for the future. As well as this being in my constituency, this visit was also useful as I am the Energy Spokesperson for the Conservative Group in the European Parliament. Visits like this help me when I discuss energy issues within the Parliament. I’d like to thank Neil and the team for showing me around today and wish them the best in their future plans.
Neil Corner, Managing Director, Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery said: “We’re a proud employer in the local community and have invested £61 million into the Teal Park site. I’m pleased to have had the opportunity to discuss our plans for the future as well as showcase the engineering talent we have in Lincoln.”
