ÉireComposites, a design, manufacturing and testing company based in Galway, Ireland, has signed a new multi-million euro contract with Spirit AeroSystems.

According to ÉireComposites, the contract will enable the creation of 40 new jobs over the next three years, while also securing 60 existing positions.
