Siemens has confirmed that it is moving its UK headquarters from Surrey to Manchester. The move will see the creation of 60 new jobs in the city and is a boost for the Didsbury Technology Park.
Juergen Maier, UK chief executive, said that the move “supports the future strategic direction of Siemens’ industrial core business.”
He added: “Many of our customers and employees are located in or near to Manchester, making it an ideal location for much of our operations.”
Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, said: “The news that Manchester is the new headquarters for Siemens UK is a great vote of confidence in Greater Manchester. The move is a real boost as we implement our Local Industrial Strategy which aims to raise productivity in sectors where Siemens is a world leader: advanced materials, cyber-security and digitalisation of industries.
“Our city-region led the first industrial revolution, and this is yet another step forward as we look to lead the fourth.”
