PHOTO_Company_OverviewUnited Technologies Corp is set to announce 20 new jobs at a maintenance, repair and overhaul centre in Shannon today.

The company, that provides high-technology systems and services to the building and aerospace industries, made the announcement as part of a €6m investment.

Shannon Aircraft Motor Works centre is a unit of UTC Aerospace Systems. It will service the next generation of Smart Probe Air Data Information Management Systems and sensors for the commercial aircraft market in Europe.

These computers and sensors provide flight information to the pilot and auto-pilot systems on speed, altitude, temperature, pitch and angle which ensures maximum flight safety.

This project has been supported by the Department of Jobs through IDA Ireland.

Shannon Aircraft Motor Works currently employs 80 people and occupies a 28,000-square-foot facility servicing aircraft electrical power systems for the global market.

This announcement follows on another recent investment from United Technologies Corp. with the expansion of its major research facility, United Technologies Research Centre Ireland Limited, in Cork, to develop cyber-physical systems for the global aerospace market.

Making the announcement from United Technologies Corp.’s Connecticut headquarters, Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD, said, “This is a vote of confidence in the Irish economy and recognises the potential of the Shannon Group as a centre of aviation enterprise and jobs.  The creation of such high quality jobs is a key part of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs strategy for the regions.  This Government will continue the work to grow investment in Ireland and to secure the country’s recovery.”

Bob Butz, Vice President of UTC said, “We are delighted to expand our maintenance capabilities at our Shannon facility. With the support of the IDA, we look forward to growing our business in Ireland and providing more value for our customers.”
