Strata Showcases its Factory of the Future Vision at Hannover


Strata Manufacturing PJSC (Strata), the advanced composite aero-structures manufacturing company is set to explore collaboration opportunities with industry leading companies and technology providers who will support in the development of its factory-of-the-future ‘Strata 2.0’ -facility. 


Strata’s new facility was revealed to key industry audiences by the company at the inaugural Global Manufacturing and Industrialization Summit (GMIS) in Abu Dhabi. The site will be located next to the company’s current facility at Nibras Al Ain Aerospace Park, and is set to have a scale of approximately 60,000 sqm. It will implement a ‘Smart Factory Ecosystem’ to combine Smart Building, Smart Manufacturing, and Smart Workforce principles to drive efficiencies, eliminate waste, elevate quality and unlock greater value for its aerospace stakeholders. The facility will more than double Strata’s existing capacity upon its completion in 2020.

Announced in March 2017, with plans to start construction next year, the company says that new factory will adopt innovative solutions pivoted around the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies; such as industrial automation and cognitive capabilities, to create a ‘Factory of the Future’ model that will transform Strata’s existing operational footprint.


Strata, which is wholly owned by Mubadala Development Company, will attend the Hannover Messe, the world’s largest industrial trade event, held from April 24 to 28 in Hannover. The UAE Pavilion at Hannover Messe highlights the strides that Abu Dhabi and the UAE have taken in establishing themselves on the global manufacturing map—a journey of which Strata is proud to be a part of.

- Due to our track record, as well as our future Factory of the Future vision, Strata is trusted by the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers to deliver aero-structure parts needed to for the global aerospace industry, Ismail Ali Abdulla, Deputy CEO of Strata commented.

During Hannover Messe, Strata will also be taking part in the ‘6th Annual UAE Investment and Business Forum’, where the company will be part of a distinguished panel of UAE dignitaries discussing ‘Innovation and Technology in the UAE’.

This will be Strata’s second showing at Hannover Messe. The leading international trade fair  attracts more than 250,000 visitors and stakeholders each year.
