Hitachi opens train plant in County Durham
This is another boost to the economic fortunes of the North East. Hot on the heels of a new £100m investment in car manufacturing from Nissan, Hitachi have opened their train plant at Newton Aycliffe in County Durham. The factory will employ over 700 people directly and there will be (we hope) strong multiplier effects from the gains in disposable income from these jobs and from extra employment among Hitachi's main contractors.
