Established with Enterprise Ireland Support, Dublin Aerospace Ltd – a new aviation maintenance provider based at Dublin airport, will create 226 new jobs over the next five years. The new company aims to deliver a best-in-class Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) facility in Dublin having acquired assets from the former SR Technics operation at the airport.
"I strongly welcome the establishment of Dublin Aerospace Ltd which continues the long-standing tradition of excellent international aviation maintenance service at Dublin Airport. Not only will this announcement lead to the creation of 226 new jobs but it also strengthens this high-skilled industry in Ireland," said Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment Mary Coughlan T.D., announcing the launch.
"Over the past number of decades, the aviation maintenance industry in Ireland has established a strong international reputation for service, quality, flexibility and responsiveness. Dublin Aerospace can build on that reputation and ensure the further development of an Irish sector already known for its high level of skills and expertise," she added.
"We are delighted to be able to announce the launch of Dublin Aerospace and are proud to be an Irish enterprise with world-class international aviation partners. We have assembled a high quality management team, all of whom have significant aviation experience and have successfully closed all our funding in spite of the current difficult funding environment," said Conor Mc Carthy, Executive Director of Dublin Aerospace.
"With our experienced management team and a strong innovative and customer-focussed approach, we look forward to building a profitable, competitive and high quality presence in the global aviation maintenance sector."
