Spanish rolling stock manufacturer CAF selected the Celtic Business Park at the Llanwern steelworks site near Newport in South Wales as the location of its UK factory.

The 15,300m² building was designed to accommodate the production of a range of different vehicle types, including diesel and electric multiple-units, trams and high speed trainsets, with a connection to the main London to South Wales railway line.

‘The factory has the flexibility to allow us to respond to the exacting demands of both existing and new customers by providing the most complete offering of any rolling stock provider operating in the UK’, said CAF’s UK Director Richard Garner
