An advanced composite aerostructures manufacturing facility based in Al Ain, that produces high quality component aircraft products for original equipment manufacturers.


Designed to meet the demands of the 21st century aerospace industry by forming partnerships with aircraft OEMs and combining leading-edge technology, best practice manufacturing processes, an integrated supply chain, and a high caliber workforce, Strata delivers innovative, cost-effective solutions to its global customers. Strata endeavors to become a tier-one supplier: designing, developing and manufacturing aircraft major units - such as wings and empennages - for the next generation of commercial aircrafts.

The company has already formed partnerships with major aircraft manufacturers, including EADS/Airbus, The Boeing Company, Finmeccanica/Alenia Aeronautica, SABCA and FACC. Strata is located in the heart of Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park which is being jointly developed by Mubadala Aerospace and Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC).

Wholly-owned by Mubadala, Strata commenced operations of its first 21,600 square meter plant in the fourth quarter of 2010, and delivered its first shipsets of the A330/340 flap track fairing in November of the same year. Currently the sole supplier of the A330/340 flap track fairing, its product portfolio has expanded in 2011 with the addition of the A330/340 aileron panels and the A380 flap track fairing. The first consignment of advanced carbon fiber composite aileron panels was delivered to Airbus representing a turning point for Strata as it aims to become a Tier 1 supplier.

Over the course of 2012, Strata will be delivering the first shipset of the vertical fin of the Alenia ATR 72. The horizontal stabilizer and the rudder for the same aircraft is targeted to be manufactured by the end of the year, making Strata the supplier of the entire empennage section of the aircraft. Work packages including the spoilers of the A330/340 and the aileron assembly for the same platform will also be produced by the company.

Strata is ensuring that young nationals from the United Arab Emirates are developing the skills and expertise required to play an important role in the development of the aerospace sector in the Emirate. Strata will provide career opportunities ranging from technical roles to engineering and managerial roles with the aim of having a 50% Emiratization ratio by 2015.
