On the 2nd anniversary of ITS (UK) member Cubic Transportation Systems’ Stockton Global Operations Centre office opening, the global company is announcing that it is increasing its office headcount from 150 people to 260 members of staff. Cubic has also recently signed a 10-year office lease, demonstrating the company’s long-term investment within the local area.
Cubic’s Stockton Global Operations Centre is key in supporting Cubic’s UK and global projects on a 24/7 basis. These include city-wide transportation projects in Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, New York and Sydney.

“The landmark project in Sydney, which will provide the city with one of the world’s most advanced transport management systems, will be largely managed out of the Stockton office.” said Craig Walton, IT Operations Manager, Cubic Transportation Systems. “Running global projects, continuing to work closely with local universities and the signing of the 10-year lease indicates the faith we have in the region as a strong base of operations now and in the future.”
Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen said: “I’ve been following Cubic’s work since first visiting its Global Operations Centre earlier this year. I have been massively impressed with their work and delighted to see that they’ll be employing 100 additional staff. All of their hard work and success has bore fruit with these announcements. They have provided another jobs boost and their new ten-year lease shows a huge vote of confidence in the Tees Valley and our economy. This firm is at the forefront of some really exciting travel innovation and I can’t wait to hear what they have planned for the next ten years – and beyond.”
