200 new jobs are to be created at EI Electronics on the Shannon Free Zone following the official opening of a new 10,000 sq metre building for the company which specialises in the manufacture of fire and carbon monoxide detection units.

The new facility which was opened by Taoiseach Mícheál Martin yesterday, provides additional research and development, manufacturing and office space.

Clare Fianna Fáil TD Cathal Crowe said that EI chief executive Mick Guinnee and his management team brought positivity to the Shannon community in general.

“The Shannon Free Zone is proving time and time again to be a solid place to do business and EI’s success is testament to that.

“These jobs will be filled over the next 12 months and I can’t let this opportunity pass without commending Mick Guinnee and his team.
