Brilliant to see Newport based train company CAF Rail UK going from strength to strength with the official opening of the factory by Prince Charles this morning.
Big potential for this company in Newport which has been supported by Welsh Government. CAF employs a skilled workforce of around 250 people, which is set to grow to 300 in the near future. They have the capacity to produce trains that are at the cutting edge of modern rail technology – including the Oarsis train model which offers travel speeds of over 360km an hour and would make an ideal fit for HS2!
Good to get a closer look at some of the trains being made on site with Newport Council leader Jane Mudd and John Griffiths AM.
