Ei Electronics expansion is a major boost to the Mid West Region.
Shannon-based company Ei Electronics is to create 200 new jobs at its 100,000 square metre campus.
The new campus includes significant additional manufacturing capacity, Research and Development, and office space.
“Today we embark on our next phase of growth, on the site in Shannon we have occupied for over 55 years”
The expansion underpins a strategy of maintaining 100% of manufacturing in Shannon, in addition to the co-location of other key functions on a single site.
The 200 additional staff will be hired over the coming 12 months.
An exciting new chapter
“Today we embark on our next phase of growth, on the site in Shannon we have occupied for over 55 years,” said Ei CEO Michael Guinee.
“This building is a testament to the dedication of very many people over several decades, built on a strong culture of loyalty, respect, commitment and long service.”
“Enterprise Ireland is delighted to see Ei Electronics continue its ambitious growth strategy,” said Enterprise Ireland CEO Leo Clancy.
“The new state-of-the-art facility here in Shannon means a bright future for an excellent company that is a great example of Irish innovation and advanced manufacturing. The opening of this new facility, together with Ei Electronics plans to recruit an additional 200 people over the next 12 months, is very welcome news for the Mid-West region.”
The expansion came as nearby manufacturer Analog Devices revealed 250 new jobs for Limerick as part of a €100m investment.
“I’m pleased to be here to witness first-hand the continued expansion of Ei Electronics, one of Ireland’s largest and most successful manufacturing and electronic companies,” said Taoiseach Micheál Martin, TD.
“For over five decades the company has been a remarkable contribution to Shannon and the Mid-West region and its ambitious plans for future growth and job creation are very welcome. Ei Electronics is an outstanding Irish-owned company creating solutions with a global reach and I commend Michael and his team on today’s milestone announcement.”
