Rail operator KeolisAmey relocates to Wales, creating 130 jobs

The company set to run trains in Wales will move its UK and global rail headquarters

The company, KeolisAmey, was awarded the £5bn contract to operate Wales and Borders rail services in May and has promised to spend £800m on new trains. A French-Spanish joint venture, they will take over operations from Arriva Trains Wales for the next 15 years from October. They currently run Greater Manchester Metrolink and London’s Docklands Light Railway, among others.

As well as running services on Wales and border routes, it will develop the new Metro system in south Wales.

The exact location of where it will be based in Wales has not yet been disclosed but a new design hub in Cardiff has been confirmed, employing at least 50 staff offering consultancy services.

A further 44 jobs will also be created at a centre which will provide services to Keolis and Amey businesses.

Keolis UK chief executive Alistair Gordon said: “Being selected as Transport for Wales’ partner for the next 15 years means that we’ll be a part of the fabric of Wales for almost a generation.

“Moving our headquarters here underlines our commitment and embeds us within the communities we’ll be serving.”

Keolis UK will open the UK headquarters by 2019 and move the global rail division from Paris by 2020.

Economy Secretary Ken Skates called it a “real coup” for Wales.
