“Celebrating a sixty-year footprint in Shannon is an amazing achievement. It demonstrates, not just commitment to the area but the ability of the organisation to adapt to the changing circumstances it has encountered over this six-decade timespan,” stated Shannon Chamber CEO Helen Downes, acknowledging Element Six’s diamond anniversary at Shannon Free Zone and commending the company on its longevity in Shannon.
“Over the past sixty years, Element Six has been a committed member of the Shannon business family, has provided employment opportunities for people in and outside this region and has manifested an interest in not just developing talent, but making its people part of the company’s success.
“As an active member of Shannon Chamber, and our Mid-West Lean Network, Element Six has opened its doors to give us and members of the network access to its facility for workshops and events and has shared its continuous improvement journey with so many companies attending network events hosted within the company’s expansive Shannon facility.
“Shannon Chamber board and executive extend their thanks to Walter Hühn, CEO at Element Six, and to current and past members of the Shannon management team, for the investment made in both facilities and people at Shannon, and for the provision of 500 jobs in this region.
“We look forward to supporting the company in its next-phase achievements and to seeing the company break yet more longevity records for business residency in Shannon.”
