EI Electronics is an Irish – and global success story
EI Electronics is one of the largest indigenous companies on the Atlantic Economic Corridor (AEC) with an annual turnover of €200million and 800 employees.
A grand total of 700 of those are based in the Shannon headquarters where manufacturing, research and development and key commercial functions are co-located.
“Since being established in 1988, following a Management buyout from General Electric, our business has expanded organically, and today we rank as one of Ireland’s leading electronics companies with annual sales of €200 million, 5 overseas sales subsidiaries and exporting to 30 countries,” explains Michael Guinee, CEO of EI Electronics.
A truly global indigenous Irish company, all manufacturing, R&D and key commercial functions are co-located in the Shannon Free Zone headquarters.
“Shannon and the AEC have proven to be an optimum location for our business to grow and expand with ready access to a well-educated workforce and excellent transport logistics by road and air,” says Guinee.
“The region offers unrivalled work-life balance opportunities and there are excellent choices for living in the axis from Limerick to Ennis and the villages and towns between.
“We are proud at having established a world leading brand in the niche area of fire and gas detection products, remaining at the forefront of technology and successfully building international markets from our AEC base.
“In the interest of balanced economic development, the AEC is the essential counter-balance to the Dublin region. It is easy to do business from the AEC and with an excellent road network, Dublin is just two hours from Shannon.’’
