A Wiltshire factory is on the market for over £1 million a year after an international firm announced its relocation.

Earlier this year Siemens Mobility confirmed plans to leave its current Chippenham site at Langley Park and build a £100 million state-of-the-art facility at Southpoint Business Park.

The company hopes to complete this major development by 2026, in line with the end of its lease for the Langley Park factory.

Commercial property agent Whitmarsh Lockhart has now listed Siemens’ current site as available to let from £1,048,810 per year.

Paul Whitmarsh, the agent dealing with the listing, told this paper they are in the early stages of marketing the property to find a future occupier, ahead of Siemens’ departure.

The site is described as a “substantial” industrial, warehouse and office premises, totalling more than 209,000sq feet.

The current factory has a rich history of acting as a hub for designing, manufacturing, and delivering railway technology, including signalling and control systems.

It was first established by contractor Evans O’Donnell in 1897.

Over the years it underwent various transitions, including being acquired by the Westinghouse Brake & Signalling Company, before becoming part of Siemens’ global network of rail infrastructure production facilities in 2013.
