Aviation maintenance company announces 200 new jobs

More than 200 jobs are being created at a new aviation maintenance provider at Dublin Airport, it was announced this afternoon.

Dublin Aerospace hopes to employ 226 people within five years, following the company’s acquisition of some of the assets of SR Technics.

The closure of SR Technics earlier this year resulted in the loss of more than 1,000 jobs.

Spokesperson Conor McCarthy said there was no reason why the company could not build employment levels up to that of SR Technics.

“If we achieve what we want to achieve there's no reason why we wouldn't exceed the numbers by a multiple,” said McCarthy.

“We have to build it from scratch - we're not losing our heads, we're not trying to create employment that isn't sustainable.

“What we want to create is profitable jobs, build on each of them, and create even more profitable jobs - so personally I don't see why we can't create thousands of jobs.”
