Pre-tax profits at Dublin-based aviation firm Parc Aviation increased by 17pc to €3.78m last year as revenues increased.

Accounts recently filed with the Companies Office show that pre-tax profits at Parc Aviation Ltd increased as revenues went up by 7pc, rising from €125.6m to €134.45m, in the 12 months to the end of March last.

The firm is in the process of adding 80 jobs in Dublin and Shannon over a three-year period.

According to the director's report, the company recorded an increase in the volume of business resulting in an increase in gross profit.

The directors said there was heavy investment in overheads to enable the company to continue this growth in future years and to meet customer demands.

Their objective is to consolidate the company's position, describing it as the leading supplier of specialist staff and services to the aviation sector. During the period under review, Parc Aviation paid a dividend of €4m to its parent - this followed a dividend payout of €3m in the prior year.
