ÉireComposites CEO Tom Flanagan spoke of the investment and announcement of 40 new positions “Today’s announcement of the continuation and expansion of the relationship between ÉireComposites and Spirit AeroSystems is hugely significant, not only as a sign of confidence of the work of Irish suppliers post-Brexit but the massive role our company will play in the future of air travel." He continued, "I am proud of the work we do here as we are unique to the area along the Wild Atlantic Way with a very loyal and skilled workforce, and without whom today’s announcement and ÉireComposites’ bright future would not be possible. ÉireComposites would also like to place on record it’s thanks to Údarás na Gaeltachta and Enterprise Ireland as they continue to support the company and ensure it continues to work on exciting, novel news projects with industry partners across the world.”

The scope of the contract includes manufacturing and testing services for a number of aircraft and will ensure that Gaeltacht innovation will have a massive role in the future of Air travel.

Éire Composites are no strangers to innovative strides having recently secured a contract to design and produce stray light baffles which will form part of the European Space Agency’s ALTIUS satellite. The company which operates an accredited composites manufacturing and testing facility in the Cois Fharraige area currently employs 60 people. ÉireComposites is an innovative design, manufacturing and testing company involved in lightweight, high performance, fibre-reinforced composite materials, with an international customer base in space, aerospace, renewable energy and industrial composites.

Mícheál Ó hÉanaigh, Chief Executive Officer, Údarás na Gaeltachta of which Éire composites is a client company said that he was extremely pleased with the news that an additional 40 jobs will be created in ÉireComposites in the Conamara area. "ÉireComposites is one of our many successful client companies who have shown that innovation and creativity do not always occur in urban areas, the expance of space in the Gaeltacht clearly inspires the workforce here, further driving home the fact that rural Ireland is the perfect base from which to be connected with the world while enjoying world class worklife balance. The company has secured a significant contract which will indeed propel the company’s products and highly skilled staff further. We also welcome Spirit AeroSystems, whose involvement is a wonderful a sign of confidence in the work of Irish suppliers post-Brexit.”
