Liqun Zhang, CEO Diamond Aircraft Austria: “We do not see the take-over of Diamond just as an investment opportunity. We are here for the long-term and want to grow Diamond on its existing sites. Diamond’s headquarters in Wiener Neustadt have been appointed as the global lead and technology centre and are strongly developed further over the coming years. We are ramping up production from 90 units, close to almost 200 units per year, more than double the volume. In 2018 we have already added more than 100 employees in Austria and we are hiring more people from the local area that are interested in a fascinating position at one of the leading GA manufacturers in its class. We are planning to increase our staff capacity from more than 600 to 800 for 2019 due to high production increase. Especially for our aircraft manufacturing we are urgently searching staff. We also have lots of job opportunities in Research & Development, Sales, and Administration.”
Diamond Aircraft Austria is holding a Job Info Day focusing on jobs in production on 22 February, 10 - 13 o'clock at Aviaticum // Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin Str. 1, 2700 Wiener Neustadt, Austria. Candidates can just drop by with their CV and apply.
Also the Canadian branch of Diamond Aircraft, currently employing over 300, is further growing and still searching for more workers, especially skilled trades as business is booming.
“We are doubling our production in 2019 to 150 units as global demand is growing. After adding more than 100 workers in the past year, we are hiring another 100 people in all departments in 2019 to meet global demand. Our biggest challenge is getting good, skilled people. The labour pool in London, Ontario is pretty shallow right now. We are looking for motivated people in the greater London area that want a unique opportunity to join our world class aircraft manufacturing company,” says Scott McFadzean, CEO Diamond Aircraft Canada.
