Irish aircraft maintenance company Dublin Aerospace has announced 150 new jobs at Dublin Airport over the next two years.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny opened the company's new €4.5m landing gear centre at the airport this morning.
Dublin Aerospace is an Irish success story. It was set up just two years ago when SR Technics pulled out of Dublin Airport with the loss of over 1,000 jobs.
Former Ryanair executive Conor McCarthy saw a gap for an Irish start-up company and took on some staff and equipment from SR Technics.
The company has been expanding rapidly since then landing contracts with Aer Lingus and Easyjet. It is now looking for skilled technicians and labourers with 45 positions available immediately.
The new jobs will bring its workforce to 300 within two years while the investment doubles its capacity to maintain Airbus A320s and Boeing 737s.
