Posted 24 December 2019 · Add Comment

Strata Manufacturing (Strata) have extended their 10-year association by signing a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the development and fabrication of composite aero-structure components for major OEM programmes.

 

The MOU will see Strata and Leonardo work to expand their presence in the global aero-structures sector by leveraging their collective engineering experience and production capabilities to spearhead new technology development. The MOU covers the provision of technical support services and knowledge exchange from Leonardo, a global high-technology leader ranking among the world’s top 10 aerospace, defence and security players.

“Strata’s main goal is to ensure that the company delivers high-quality components to the world, reflecting the value of the ‘Made with Pride in UAE’ brand,” said Ismail Ali Abdulla, CEO of Strata. “The core objective of the MOU is to grow our mutual business in global OEM programmes. This will be achieved by fostering strategic new opportunities to enhance Strata’s technological knowledge and capabilities – both key factors in driving the UAE’s knowledge-based economy and empowering the next generation of Emirati engineering pioneers,” he continued."

“After more than 10 year of Strata’s contribution to the ATR programme, Leonardo is committed to its strategic ongoing collaborations with Strata,” said Giancarlo Schisano, Leonardo’s Aero-structures Division Managing Director. “Our engineering capabilities and advanced technology processes will be a key success factor to capture new business opportunities in a win-win cooperation scheme.
