    Alstom used to be called GEC Alsthom. The French owned company closed its 150-year-old Birmingham plant at Washwood Heath, the former site of the Metro-Cammell train building yards in 2005.

    Workers had campaigned to keep the site open but eventually accepted redundancy offers. The closure of the Washwood Heath factory effectively ended train manufacture in Birmingham.

    Problems with train unreliability in the UK and safety approval issues prompted the company to restructure with substantial job losses for the West Midlands.
