THE Management of Ei Electronics has announced plans for an Open Day to be held on September 23, celebrating 55 Years manufacturing in Shannon, and 30 Years as an Irish Company.
The Open Day involves an invitation to all employees – past and present, their families, customers, suppliers, members of the local community, local schools, etc. to come together and celebrate these milestone anniversaries of Ei’s presence in Shannon.
In addition to tours of the Ei factory and new Centre of Excellence, there will be a tented village with BBQ refreshments, fun for the kids, and live entertainment throughout the afternoon.
Commenting on the plans, CEO Mick Guinee said, “The Ei success story has been a wonderful journey over many decades. Our aim at the outset was to maintain valuable manufacturing jobs in Shannon, and build a successful and sustainable international business.
“Today, after 55 years, we are the largest employer in Shannon. Our Open Day is an opportunity to celebrate these achievements with our local community, and pay tribute to employees, past and present.”
The Open Day will provide a unique opportunity for a behind scenes view of the largest employer in Shannon, with over 700 employees and exports to 30 countries worldwide, an exemplar of successful indigenous Irish industry.
