Comment on creation of a train manufacturing plant in Longannet
Commenting on the decision to approve planning for the creation of a train manufacturing plant in Longannet, Transport and Infrastructure Secretary Michael Matheson said:
“This positive planning decision is a significant milestone for Scotland’s partnership with Talgo. It both moves us closer to the creation of 1,000 high quality, highly skilled jobs and demonstrates what Scotland can and will do for companies who share our vision of Scotland as the place to invent and build the future – and their own future workforce.
“Talgo’s commitment to Scotland will bring a fantastic industrial asset back into use, anchoring communities and supply chains across Scotland and the UK, and we look forward to working with the company on establishing roots in Longannet.”
