Over 90 Aerogen jobs confirmed for Shannon

  • Jobs will be based in former Molex plant
  • Latest positive announcement for Shannon

Fianna Fáil TD for Clare Cathal Crowe has welcomed confirmation from medtech firm Aerogen that it will create over 90 jobs in Shannon.

The company has secured a portion of the former Molex plant in the Shannon Industrial Estate for a new manufacturing operation.

The hiring process is well underway with a number of positions already filled in Operations, Engineering, Quality Assurance and Manufacturing.

“This is a significant week for Shannon with two jobs announcements within days of each other,” said Deputy Crowe.

“There were widespread fears for employment prospects when Molex closed and now, Aerogen has guaranteed that at least 90 skilled workers will be recruited for that location.

“This is on top of news earlier in the week that the UMR Group is in advanced talks with a significant employer, with a view to adding 150 jobs in the second section of the Molex facility.

“Add into this the possibility of Amazon establishing a presence in Shannon and the future is looking extremely bright for Clare and the Midwest.

“This is down to the hard work of all stakeholders in promoting Shannon as a place to do business and I’m sure announcements like these will encourage other major employers to look at Shannon as a possible location.”
