Siemens in the UK

Siemens was established in the United Kingdom over 170 years ago, with office and manufacturing operations throughout the country. Today, the company employs 8,600 people in the UK.

About us

Siemens has had a presence in the UK since 1843. Our founder, William Siemens, was one of the leading industrialists of the Victorian age, turning his concepts and inventions into practical solutions – many of which were world firsts.


We are passionate about being the digital partner of choice in our industries, creating value in our technology and the data in our installed base for organisations looking to harness the power of the internet of things.


We design and manufacture products and systems ranging from traffic lights, gas turbines and turbine spares to the superconducting magnets used in medical scanners and the drives that are behind many of the UK's manufacturing plants.


We're a top employer of entry level talent in the UK with 483 apprentices, graduates and interns.

Business to Society

We take our responsibility towards the community very seriously and look for a variety of ways to measure the role we play and the benefit we create.


Business to society is about generating lasting value for the societies in which we operate. It’s not just about investing but measuring the economic, societal and environmental impact of that investment.  This helps us to understand the influence we have in a country: in terms of economic growth, skills development and the creation of local jobs; in relation to innovation, environmental protection and the quality of life as a whole.

We look beyond the business at a wide variety of data – such as development and infrastructure plans of a country, region or area; the economic and social deprivation indexes; education indexes and much more. This tells us what’s important and where we can play a role.

Discover the various ways we can measure our contribution to the UK – be it the jobs we create and local suppliers we use, to how we minimise our own – and our customers’ – impact on the environment, and how we share our expertise through strategic partnerships with charities and local organisations, fundraising and volunteering.
