Mubadala Aerospace and Boeing signed two agreements here at the Dubai Air Show yesterday. The first involves Strata Manufacturing, Mubadala’s advanced composites facility in Al Ain, UAE, which aims to become a “Tier 1” supplier of composite aerostructures to the U.S. manufacturer. The second agreement sets up a strategic partnership between Mubadala’s Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center (AMMROC) and Boeing Defense, Security & Space, whereby AMMROC will support Boeing DSS military aircraft platforms in the UAE. Both agreements are aimed at furthering Mubadala’s ambitions in civil and defense aerospace, and follow the November 2009 strategic framework agreement signed by the two companies.
