Strata signed up by Boeing for new 777X aerostructures

Posted 30 April 2018 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi’s advanced composite aero structures manufacturing business Strata signed a deal with Boeing today to manufacture composite empennage ribs for Boeing’s new 777X airplane.


The agreement, announced at the Global Aerospace Summit, is the Mubadala subsidiary’s first contracted statement of work for the 777X programme, enabling the company to expand its role as a direct composite aero structures supplier to Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
“The new 777X contract underscores Strata’s strong reputation, and the confidence of our partners, which we have earned by delivering high quality components to a globally renowned aviation giant,” said Ismail Ali Abdulla, Strata’s CEO. “Strata continues to be a leading example and proof that ‘Made in the UAE’ isn’t a goal for tomorrow, but a reality of today. Strata holds an important role in the evolution of Abu Dhabi towards becoming a global aerospace hub, and has become one of the leading employers for high value and fulfilling careers in the UAE.”
Strata will manufacture 777X empennage ribs at its state-of-the-art facility in the Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park, in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. This is the fourth work package that Boeing has awarded to Strata since 2013, as it already manufactures empennage ribs for the 777 and vertical fin ribs for the 787 Dreamliner. In the future, Strata will be a supplier of the 787-vertical fin.
“Boeing is proud to advance our mutually beneficial strategic partnership with Mubadala in ways we strongly believe are delivering long-term benefits to the UAE’s economy and Boeing’s business growth,” said Bernard Dunn, president Boeing Middle East, North Africa and Turkey.
These achievements build on the strategic partnership between Boeing and Mubadala, in support of Abu Dhabi’s goals to become a global aerospace hub and diversify its economy. Strata is the first composite aero structures supplier to Boeing in the Arab world.
