Strata reports record-breaking year


Strata is a transformative company capable of shaping the future of manufacturing in the UAE.

2022 was another stellar year for Strata, the advanced manufacturing and aerospace manufacturing firm based in their state-of-the-art facility in Al Ain, throughout which the Mubadala company established itself as a transformative company capable of shaping the future of manufacturing in the UAE.

Reaching the significant milestone of thirty production lines in 2022 was merely the start of a groundbreaking set of industry developments for the Company, whose parent company is Mubadala.

“2022 saw Strata build upon a powerful foundation and take several key steps forward to assure a bright future, not just for the company, but for UAE’s position as a leader in manufacturing,” according to the CEO of Strata, Ismail Ali Abdulla.

“Additionally, we are proud to announce that in the year 2022, we have achieved a production milestone of 5,020 shipsets and 74,128 aero-structure parts.”

Last year, the Strata team designed, developed, qualified and deployed automated robotic satellite hole drilling on the Boeing 787 Vertical Fin Programme, and the automated robotic drill and countersink solution on the Airbus A350 IBF - both significant steps forward with two flagship partners. A robotic thermography solution was delivered to the Strata NDI team. Strata celebrated the completion of the First Article Inspection (FAI) of PC-24 Bullet Fairing and Tail-Cone, shortly followed by their 100th shipset of PC-24 Flap Track Fairings to a growing high-profile international clientele.

The ongoing relationship and flagship contract with Pilatus continued to grow from strength to strength throughout the year, and an additional four work packages for the PC-24 and PC-12 made use of Hot Press Technology for the first time in UAE history.

At present, 64 per cent of Strata’s workforce is made up of UAE citizens, and in 2022 over 400 nationals graduated from the firm’s pioneering Aerostructure Technicians Training Programme.
