Irish company Lufthansa Technik Turbine Shannon (LTTS) is expanding its business and facility in response to growing market demand. With a new building in Shannon’s Free Zone covering 2,000 m² and equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the company is increasing its capacity. It will offer new products for CFM56 and V2500 turbine engines powering Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 aircraft.
Operations are set to commence in the new facility in the first quarter of 2023, offering new highly skilled jobs to the mid-west region of Ireland.
After experiencing a sharp fall in activity during the COVID-19 crisis, LTTS has already created in excess of 100 jobs. The expansion will enable the company to grow in products for which there is strong demand in the foreseeable future.
LTTS, a member of Lufthansa Technik’s EPAR network (engine parts and accessories repair), specialises in the repair of components for both high-pressure and low-pressure turbines for CFMI, IAE, and GE aircraft engines. The company was originally founded in 1992, today employs a staff of more than 250 people and has some 8,000 m² of floor space available at its existing site in Shannon Smithtown.
