Posted: 14/09/2016

TRB Lightweight Structures has opened a new 20,000 sq ft facility in Peterborough creating 25 jobs in the process to better serve both UK and European customers.

The facility is a joint effort between UK-based TRB Lightweight Structures and Austrian-based Seisenbacher. The co-locating of the two businesses is part of a strategic plan to provide end-to-end solutions to the Rail industry.

The facility will be used primarily for metal machining and manufacturing of high-performance components for rail interiors and will house a 5-axis machine, a laser cutter and a CNC press-brake. Machining of parts started in early August with major new contracts expected to be completed in the coming months.

Speaking of the move Opportunity Peterborough CEO Steve Bowyer said “TRB and Seisenbacher’s decision to invest in Peterborough was based on the city’s excellent strategic location, finding the right commercial property and our strong environmental credentials. Opportunity Peterborough was delighted to help with their investment, which will create 25 jobs for the local economy.”
