Brand New Hitachi Factory Opens
The brand new £82 million train building factory in Newton Aycliffe is officially opened later.
Hitachi says it aims to 'bring train building back home'.
More than 700 jobs will be created at the facility and thousands more across the supply chain.
The Rail Vehicle Manufacturing Facility is the largest private sector investment in the North-east since Nissan arrived in Sunderland.
110 superfast class 800 trains will be built in total.
They've been specifically designed by Hitachi for the government’s £5.7bn InterCity Express Programme (IEP).
Most of the 866 carriage fleet will be manufactured in Newton Aycliffe, and most of the workers will come from within a 50-mile radius of the site.
