Alstom in the UK

In the UK, Alstom is active in the rail, power and electricity transmission sectors, operates from 30 sites and employs more than 6,500 people across the country. Around a third of all rail journeys in the UK are made on Alstom rolling stock, our generating kit powers half of the UK’s power stations, we are testing new tidal turbine technology in waters off Orkney, and we operate the only large-scale transformer manufacturing facility in the UK. Our sites in Stafford and Rugby have been at the forefront of engineering developments since the 19th-century and continue to produce cutting edge technology for projects across the world.
