Strata, the advanced composite aeroparts manufacturing plant in Al Ain, has shipped its first consignment of parts to Airbus for its long-range A330/A340 aircraft.

The delivery of these components marks a significant turning point for the company as it works towards becoming a Tier 1 supplier to Airbus, which aims become by mid 2012 the sole supplier of advanced carbon fibre composite aileron panels for its long-range A330/A340 aircraft.

Ross Bradley CEO said: "Strata has achieved an incredible amount since the plant first opened its doors in September 2010. The delivery which comes on-time, on budget and obviously as per the customer quality requirements is yet another example of how STRATA is beginning to make a name for itself in the industry."

Homaid Al Shemmari, Chairman of Strata and Executive Director, Mubadala Aerospace, said: "Our partners are critical to supporting our vision of building an integrated knowledge-driven Aerospace hub in Abu Dhabi. It is sustainable businesses such as Strata that are helping to deliver opportunities for skilled UAE nationals, which is at the heart of Mubadala's mission."
