Since Strata began operations, we have been committed to becoming a global leader in the aerospace industry.

Strata, along with other UAE aerospace companies, works in line with Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030 to support the development of a global aerospace hub for the Emirate. In doing so, Strata engages heavily with local small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that are driven by local entrepreneurs with the aim of building a robust local supply chain in the city of Al-Ain.

Al Olama continued: “At Strata, we aim to become a partner of choice for our global customer base by supplying high quality advanced composite aero-structures; and at home in the UAE, by supporting the socio-economic development of Abu Dhabi.”

Strata is contributing to the development of an integrated global aerospace hub in Abu Dhabi by building capabilities in human capital, research & development and new technologies that lead to innovative turnkey solutions for the industry.
