The aviation sector contributes more than €4 billion to the economy annually. Dublin Aerospace was established in 2009 with the assistance of an Enterprise Ireland investment. Executive Chairman at the company, Mr. Conor McCarthy said: "Since our start-up in 2009 with just 18 staff, our annual turnover has risen from €7m to €46m last year and we have been profitable since our second year in operation. "Last year saw further increases in turnover for all three business units; Aircraft Overhaul, Landing Gear and Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) Services. This solid underlying business performance has given us the confidence to create another 150 full-time, permanent engineering and support roles in our Dublin operation."
The announcement was attended by An Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Frances Fitzgerald and the expansion is supported by Enterprise Ireland.
