Lufthansa Technik Turbine Shannon officialy opened its new Engine Parts & Accessories Repair facility in Shannon. The new 2,000 m2 state-of-the-art facility brings LTTS total capacity for aircraft engine maintenance and repair in the region to 10,000 m2. This development enables LTTS to expand its portfolio by including Engine Manifolds among its specialist services. The primary function of Engine Manifolds is to distribute air or fluids for optimal engine performance. When manifolds become damaged or worn, they can diminsh engine performance and lead to increased emissions.  LTTS has been operating in Ireland since 1992. In the past two years alone, the company has added an additional 106 people to its workforce and now employs more than 300 people across its operations in Shannon, Kildare and Dublin.  

New opportunities  

The new Shannon facility has already resulted in the creation of 25 additional jobs and LTTS CEO, Michael Malewski says that as the company continues to grow and diversify, recruitment remains a priority. “Today is a very exciting day for the business in Ireland. With this new facility we are diversifying our product portfolio and enhancing our manufacturing capabilities to better serve our customers’ needs. The diversification and expansion of our core MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul) services portfolio has happened fast and the LTTS team has worked tirelessly to bring this project to fruition. I believe we have some of the best people in the world working for us at each of our three locations, but we need even more as we experience rapid post-pandemic recovery.” He highlighted a particular need for more experienced aviation engineers as well as qualified mechanics and engineers from any field interested in moving into the aviation industry.  

Speaking at the launch of the new facility, Mr Malewski paid tribute to the Irish government, the IDA, Shannon Chamber and Shannon Airport Group for their continued support in facilitating the growth of LTTS in Ireland. “As a result of strong cooperation from key stakeholders we have realised our latest ambitions for the company in Ireland and our growth path is now wide open. I believe that the opportunities for LTTS in Ireland are significant and we are in a strong position to deliver innovative solutions that will drive the aviation industry forward,” he said.
