EAG MembersGreater Capacity, Greater Competitiveness
Strength in Numbers
Emerald Aerospace is a cluster of 14 indigenous manufacturing companies located through Ireland with a concentration in and around the Mid-West. Members are all owner managed indigenous SMEs, with expertise in sectors such as precision engineering, metal treatments, plastic injection moulding & thermoforming, 3 D Printing, composites and fabrication.
Five members in EAG, Dawnlough, DPF, Panelok, Eirecomposites and Takumi, have developed traction in securing aerospace exports. Over a three year period from 2013-2016 these companies have grown their aerospace business from a negligible base to a combined export revenue accruing from aerospace exports of circa €15 million in 2016. This new revenue stream has resulted in the creation of an additional 150 direct jobs across these 5 companies over a 3 year period. Prior to 2013 these companies had negligible aerospace exports.
The capability exists within the membership to meet the combined scale and range of service required by the aerospace industry. Ireland enjoys an excellent reputation in the global medical device and pharmaceutical sectors, which have very similar regulatory obligations and skill set requirements. Several Emerald Aero member companies such as Dawnlough, DPF and Takumi have progressed from the medical device (ISO13485) standard to the aerospace (AS9100) without any significant challenges.
