A new train manufacturing plant could bring a wealth of new jobs to the UK, some which could be available to limited company contractors.
More than 900 new positions are expected to be up for grabs thanks to a £4.5 billion deal agreed between the coalition government and Japanese firm Hitachi.
According to details released by the government this week, 730 jobs will be available once the plant is opened, while 200 positions will be created in order to construct the premises in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.
"We believe it is very important to contribute to job creation in the UK," stated Shinya Mitsudomi, Hitachi's chief strategy officer.
"We have learned so much about the railroad system from the UK, we felt it would be fitting to return to the birthplace of the railway to return the favour."
The move comes as part of the role out for the UK's new and improved railway network and will see around 600 carriages constructed.
