Lufthansa Technik Turbine Shannon (LTTS) has opened a new Engine Parts & Accessories Repair (EPAR) facility in Shannon, Ireland, as part of its ongoing growth trajectory in the region.
The new 2,000 square meter facility increases LTTS’ total capacity for aircraft engine maintenance and repair in the area to 10,000 square meters and allows the company to expand its services to include Engine Manifolds, which distribute air or fluids for optimal engine performance.
The EPAR facility has already generated 25 new jobs, with CEO Michael Malewski citing recruitment as a priority as the company continues to diversify and grow in the post-pandemic recovery period.
“With this new facility we are diversifying our product portfolio and enhancing our manufacturing capabilities to better serve our customers’ needs,” Malewski said. “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.”
LTTS has been operating in Ireland since 1992, with over 300 employees across its operations in Shannon, Kildare, and Dublin.
