Shannon Group welcomes Element Six investment in Shannon Free Zone
27 January 2017
Shannon Group has today welcomed the €7million and 100 job investment by Element Six as an endorsement of the Shannon Free Zone as a leading destination for innovation and Shannon Airport’s role in supporting that.
Congratulating the company, Shannon Group CEO Matthew Thomas said: “This is a major success for Element Six and testament to the hard work of their operations in the Shannon Free Zone, as a global base for high-end manufacturing. Given the company already has a 60 year history here in Shannon and is investing very significantly in its future here now shows that the attractiveness and competitiveness of the Free Zone as a base for major international brands is as strong as ever.
“Today was also strong endorsement of the role that Shannon Airport plays in underpinning investment here. Element Six today acknowledged this role Shannon plays, through providing connectivity for their people and customers between international markets and Shannon but also for logistics. They can have product leave Shannon today and be with customers in the US as early as this evening or tomorrow and that’s an essential support that the airport provides. Element Six has, in turn, been a very good supporter of Shannon Airport over the years and we very much appreciate that.”
