Investing in talent is a top priority for Mubadala Investment Company. As a sovereign investor with an entrepreneurial mindset, we know that it is the people across our group of companies that make the difference.
It is through their passion and dedication that we have been able to achieve remarkable progress. Take for example, Abdulrahman Al Hosani, an MRO engineer at Sanad Aerotech (formerly known as TS&S), who is a shining example of an ambitious UAE national striving for excellence on many tracks.
As a triathlete, he has made his way to the national team representing the UAE in international competitions.
On another front, he has managed to translate his childhood passion for aviation into a successful career. Joining Sanad Aerotech as a fresh graduate in 2003, Abdul Rahman is now managing the whole MRO operation and is inspiring the next generation of young Emiratis.
Sanad Aerotech provides comprehensive MRO services to customers around the world on aircraft engines installed on a variety of applications including the Airbus A330, A320 and Boeing 787,777,767 as well as other light aircrafts. In partnership with renowned global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) such as GE, IAE, Rolls-Royce and Siemens, Sanad is able to provide world-class services and solutions with the highest level of tailored technical support to meet customer’s requirements.
Local talent are playing a central role in driving the MRO business.
Aerospace is one of the sectors through which Mubadala is supporting our shareholder’s strategic objective of positioning Abu Dhabi as a globally integrated and diversified economy. By endeavoring to develop Abu Dhabi into the world’s aviation hub, this sector is also providing unique opportunities for our local talent to gain world-class skills.
In the accompanying video, Abdul Rahman reflects on his performance on both tracks. His message is if you can excel in one area, you can shine in many others as well. All you need is passion, discipline, and patience.
At Dubai Airshow last week, Mubadala Aerospace announced that it was merging its MRO and capital businesses to create a national champion for industrial services. The new parent company, Sanad, will integrate Sanad Aerotech, the specialist aircraft engine MRO business; Sanad Powertech, the energy and industrial MRO service provider; and Sanad Capital (formerly known as Sanad Aero Solutions), a dedicated leasing partner for the global aerospace industry. The new aviation powerhouse is designed to foster Abu Dhabi’s long-term growth in the global aerospace and industrial services sectors.
