Strata starts delivering on new Airbus product lines
Strata Manufacturing said on Sunday it had started to deliver on two new product lines for Airbus aircraft.
Strata said it started delivering ailerons and flaptrack fairings for the A330 family of aircraft, including the A330neo, on a sole supplier contract it won for the ailerons last year.
The Strata aileron programme accounted for 26 per cent of the company’s total revenue by the end of this year’s first half, which reached Dh192 million, compared to Dh144m for the previous year.
The company said it also delivered its first shipset of A350 – 1000 flap support fairings on a subcontract with Saab for Airbus.
“The delivery of the latest shipsets reinforces our commitment to developing a manufacturing hub in Abu Dhabi for the global aerospace industry,” the chief executive Badr Al Olama said.
Lars Jensen, the managing director of Saab Aerostructures said: “With the first delivery of the A350-1000 flap support fairings, our cooperation reached a very important milestone.
“We are pleased to have Strata as a partner to Saab on this work package and they have proven their good capabilities and skilled workforce with this achievement. This is, however, only the first delivery in many to come and we look forward to continue this cooperation on the A350-1000 programme.”
