The new offices will be home to Siemens Managed Services, an independent provider of a comprehensive range of metering services at national transmission level, as well as for commercial, industrial and domestic for energy and water use.

The company was formed in 1997 and has since grown to become one of the largest independent providers of utility services in the UK and the global centre of competence for the Siemens digital grid business.

Lilian Greenwood MP for Nottingham South, who attended the official launch of Siemens new Nottingham home, said “It’s fantastic to see Siemens make a long term commitment to Nottingham. This investment represents a vote of confidence in our city and its ability to be at the heart of a balanced economy. Siemens employs over 300 people and each of them makes a strong contribution to our local economy, we should use this investment to attract more technology companies to our city centre which is a great place to do business”.

The move is set to bring new efficiencies and provide a modern 21st Century working environment for all employees, customers and business partners.

It secures the long term prosperity of the Siemens business in Nottingham that is investing in people and infrastructure to support the transformation to a digital future connected with smart metering. The new location also has stronger green transport links, reducing travel time for employees as well as increasing access to public transport.

Kevin Tutton, Head of Managed Services at Siemens added “The new site provides a cost effective state of the art facility, creating an environment that encourages innovation and collaboration in support of our customers, employees and partners. Ultimately, this is a vote of confidence and commitment from Siemens in Nottingham.”

David Pearson, Director of Partnerships and Membership Services at East Midlands Chamber of Commerce, added his comment to the move, saying “Siemens is one of the biggest companies in digitalisation and business, so these new facilities will help accommodate this, with the new IT infrastructure making a pathway for more success for Siemens in Nottingham.”

Councillor Sam Webster, Portfolio Holder for Business, Education and Skills at Nottingham City Council, said; “As we welcome Siemens to their new Lenton Lane premises, where I hope they will continue to innovate, create jobs and contribute to the local community, I would like to take this opportunity to recognise their investment which clearly shows their confidence in building a long term future here in Nottingham

“Nottingham is a city with a large and diverse labour force, integrated, sustainable transport system and a range of attractive business premises. Siemens’ investment demonstrates the city’s potential to attract leading global companies as well as enabling our own local enterprises to grow.”
