Background

Jet Airplane, Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) facility.

EIRE/IRELAND WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1919, IT COVERS AN AREA OF 70,284 SQ KM, ITS POPULATION IS 3.6 MILLION, ITS CAPITAL CITY IS DUBLIN, AND ITS OFFICIAL LANGUAGES ARE ENGLISH AND GAELIC.

November 2013: Dublin-based jet engine overhaul facility Lufthansa Technik Airmotive Ireland (LTAI) (LAT) is considering shutting down due to declining revenues and shrinking international market opportunities.

The company, which employs 400 workers, will begin immediate negotiations with its three trade unions ((TEEU), (SIPTU), (UNITE)) and existing employee representatives.

(LTAI) Managing Director Wolfgang Mörig said the increased quality and efficiency of the new generations of airplane engines has reduced the need for overhaul.

Aer Lingus (ARL) set up Airmotive Ireland in 1980. Lufthansa Technik (DLH) (LTK) took a 60% shareholding in 1997 and full ownership in 1999. (LTAI) specializes in the repair and overhaul of (CFM56-3), (CFM56-7), (V2500-A5) and (JT9D) engine types.

December 2013: Lufthansa Technik (DLH) (LTK) will close its Dublin-based jet engine overhaul facility Lufthansa Technik Airmotive Ireland (LTAI) (LAT) after it could find no rescue solution. On December 20, (LTAI) served termination notices to about 400 staff.

On November 15, (LTAI) had announced the start of a 30-day process to consider closing the company, subject to consultation with all relevant parties. This followed an extensive review of operations at (LTAI), in the context of declining revenues and shrinking international market opportunities.

An offer from an outside party to take over the facility did not lead to an acceptable solution. The three trade unions and employee representatives failed to reach agreement on severance terms.
