Under the terms of the agreement, Strata will manufacture the composite vertical fin for the 787 Dreamliner at the Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park, in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Badr Al Olama, chief executive officer, Strata said: “The announcement today is a reflection of the long-standing relationship between Strata and Boeing, and is testament to the trust that one of the world’s largest aerospace companies has placed in its partnership with Strata. The expansion of our relationship with Boeing further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to develop a global aerospace manufacturing hub in Nibras – the Al Ain Aerospace Park.” 

“This contract reflects significant commitment and investment by U.A.E. and Mubadala leaders to expand their aerospace manufacturing capabilities and support their long-term economic vision,” said Ray Conner, president and CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “For nearly a decade, Boeing and Mubadala have worked closely to expand the global supply of aerospace composites and meet Boeing requirements for quality and affordability. We’re proud to award this important work package for the Dreamliner to Strata.”
