Welcoming the announcement, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar, TD said, “Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on the aviation sector. The Government is determined to help the industry recover and rebuild once the pandemic is over. This expansion by Shannon Technical Services, creating 80 new jobs in Shannon and Dublin by the end of 2023, is a great vote of confidence. Congratulations to the team involved. I wish them every success as their business continues to grow.”
Ben Whelan, Founder and CEO of Shannon Technical Services stated, “Shannon Technical Services is the most trusted global aviation technical services partner and the foundation to the company’s success lies in its people. As we begin to recover from these turbulent times for society and in particular for the aviation sector, we feel privileged to be expanding and providing attractive job opportunities in Shannon and at a new office that we will be opening in Dublin. The aviation industry has demonstrated resilience many times in the past and I’m confident that it will, once again, bounce back.”
