Conway welcomes EI Electronics decision to create 70 jobs in Shannon

26th August 2013 - Senator Martin Conway

Fine Gael Clare Senator, Martin Conway, has today (Monday) welcomed the announcement by EI Electronics in Shannon that it is to expand its workforce to 500 this year.

“I am delighted that EI Electronics has decided to expand its operation in Shannon with the creation of 70 jobs. This will have a direct benefit on a large number of individuals and their families. It is also a real vote of confidence in Clare and the wider region, as a place to do business.

“EI Electronics is a leading fire safety products developer and manufacturer and already employs some 430 staff in Shannon and contributes around €30 million to the local economy each year.

“This expansion will make a significant difference to the wider region, and will undoubtedly lead to additional jobs being created in connected industries. The success of the workforce in EI Electronics is also proof that our indigenous companies can prosper and thrive.

“It also highlights the continuous efforts of the Minister for Jobs, Richard Bruton, in fostering an environment in which jobs can be created in the current challenging economic climate. This Government is focused on rebuilding our economy to one that is sustainable and based on enterprise and innovation. Boosting job creation is the Government’s number one priority, and I look forward to similar positive announcements in the near future.”
