Strata boosts PPE supply chain between UAE and Japan

Posted 19 April 2021 · Add Comment

Strata Manufacturing (Strata) has strengthened global distribution of its ‘Made with Pride in the UAE’ line of personal protective equipment (PPE) products after agreeing a landmark MoU with the Japanese administrative jurisdiction of Tokushima Prefecture.

 

Signed during a virtual ceremony between Ismail Ali Abdulla, Strata CEO, and Kamon Iizumi, Governor of Japan’s Tokushima Prefecture, the MoU will see Strata establish a stable supply chain of PPE products and supplies between the UAE and Tokushima Prefecture on the island of Shikoku, which is home to more than half a million people.

In addition to the distribution of essential PPE – including the supply of N95 masks produced by Strata’s Al Ain facility in partnership with Honeywell – the two parties will also explore potential opportunities within the technological innovation and R&D fields. The MOU will also explore the opportunity to supply medical equipment and PPE to municipalities and government-related organisations within other Japanese prefectures.

 

“Since the establishment of our N95 production line, Strata, in-line with the UAE’s international humanitarian efforts, has endeavoured to support the global fight against the pandemic by providing personal protective equipment where it is needed most,” explained Abdulla. “In addition to furthering this patriotic and humanitarian commitment to export PPE products that are ‘Made with Pride in the UAE’ around the world, this landmark MOU also facilitates wider collaborations in mutual interests including technology innovation across numerous industry verticals.

 

Governor Iizumi said: “Strata Manufacturing has established a successful N95 production line in its Al Ain facility, providing N95 masks and other medical supplies to the Middle East, USA, UK and more. Our cooperative agreement with Strata Manufacturing will help build a stable supply chain of PPE products and essential medical supplies for our medical system within Tokushima Prefecture.

“The cooperation will also extend its efforts to ensure that other municipalities, government and other related organizations are supplied with medical supplies. The agreement will give hope and peace of mind to medical professionals.”
