An aircraft maintenance provider is to create 150 new jobs over the next three years.

Dublin Aerospace says the expansion is part of the company's strategy to double its turnover by 2023.

The firm says since its start-up in 2009 with just 18 staff, annual turnover has risen from €7m to €46m last year.

The 150 new roles will be full time, permanent engineering and support roles.

Dublin Aerospace CEO Michael Tyrrell said: "This quarter we have just hired the first 48 of 150 additional team members with a variety of skill sets including aircraft engineers, avionics technicians, structures and composite technicians, painters and aircraft operatives."

"We attribute our success to our dedicated and flexible teams of professionals.

"As a highly-skilled industry where experience is key, we need to maintain these standards as we grow.

"Therefore I am pleased to announce that we will have two more intakes of similar size in 2018 and 2019, creating 150 more jobs in total."

Welcoming the announcement, Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald said: "I am delighted to join Michael Tyrrell and his team at Dublin Aerospace for the announcement of 150 high-value engineering and technician jobs.

"It is testament to the vision of the team and the company’s highly skilled and dedicated staff that Dublin Aerospace is growing so confidently."
