Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has signed agreements with two United Kingdom based companies Beagle Aerospace and Generation Metals International.

The agreement with ADAC and Beagle Aerospace will lead to local spares warehousing at Al Ain, providing off-the-shelf availability for aircraft components such as flaps, spoilers, engine cowls and thrust reversers, meaning faster response times for Aircraft on Ground (AOG) situations.

 The company has a long and well established history within the aerospace industry and its future plans include the commissioning of a purpose built specialist composite repair facility within the Cluster at Al Ain.

HE Khalifa Mohamed Al Mazrouei, Chairman of ADAC, commenting on the two agreements, said, “The UK aerospace industry is renowned throughout the world for the exceptional quality of its aviation products and services. ADAC is delighted to be partnering Beagle Aerospace and Generation Metals, both leaders within their respective fields, and is confident that their introduction into the new aerospace cluster in Al Ain will help this emerging centre to prosper.”

On behalf of Beagle Aerospace, Rob Ludford, CEO, said, “This exciting opportunity enables Beagle to work closely with our valued partners, ADAC, in accelerating our well developed plans to offer a much needed specialist structural support capability in the region. We see this as an expansion of our UK business and an opportunity for our business to grow into the Middle East, Asia and further afield.”

The Binding Agreement between ADAC and Generation Metals International aims to utilise the company’s expertise in supply chain management as well as providing an extensive range of aerospace metallics to businesses operating in the wider region.

Kevin Bolderston, Managing Director of Generation Metals, said, “As an established global supplier of aerospace products and services our strategy is one of further expansion overseas – we see Al Ain as a key accelerator in our growth on the global stage. We see ourselves meeting the needs of the Cluster businesses as well as facilitating our progression across the Middle East, Asia and Africa.”
