The railways have always played a big part in the local industry. Crewe Works carries out train maintenance and inspection and is now owned by Bombardier Transportation. Although not as many people work there as once before, there is still an electric locomotive maintenance depot to the north of the railway station. The rail industry also provides tourism opportunities for the town.
Manufacturing makes up a large proportion of employment, in particular car production. The Bentley car factory employs 3500 people, and was used to produce Rolls Royce cars as well until the prestige brand was bought by BMW recently. Watch out for vacancies on their graduate development programme, industrial placement programme or apprentice schemes. Opportunities exist in engineering, finance, logistics, information systems, purchasing, sales and other fields. The nearby BAE Systems factory produces small arms ammunition for the British armed forces.
