The head of Siemens' service division in Lincoln has been setting out his hopes for the future at the opening of the new turbine service centre at Teal Park. Neil Corner says the facility should enable them to expand the number of staff they already employ as work demand increases.
Siemens' director of service in Lincoln has paid tribute to all those who have worked towards the opening of the firm's new turbine service centre:
Siemens has officially opened its new gas turbine service centre at Teal Park in Lincoln. Feilden House is a purpose built facility which the firm describes as world class. 500 staff moved from offices elsewhere in the city at the end of last year and the workshop area transferred at Easter.
Bosses say the 135,000 square foot facility has been built to the highest possible specification with capacity for further expansion. There are already 600 employees there but the firm hopes to increase the number of workers as it attracts more business.
The building is also the first in Lincolnshire to be given a BREAM "excellence" rating for its environmental standards thanks to special roof panels and energy efficient lighting as well as electric car and cycle charging points.
Siemens' new gas turbine service facility at Teal Park in Lincoln officially opens this morning. The state of the art engineering centre represents a big investment for the region.
