Etihad Engineering and Sanad have extended their long-term business agreement as both organisations continue to elevate the standards of service in the aviation industry.
Etihad Engineering and Sanad deliver high-quality services to aviation clients worldwide from Etihad Engineering’s 545,000sqm MRO facility adjacent to Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Etihad Engineering specialises in airframe, component, and engineering services, while Sanad provides a diverse range of engine MRO services.
Speaking about the extension, which was agreed at last week’s Dubai Airshow, Daniel Hoffmann, chief executive of Etihad Engineering, said: “We’ve renewed and extended our work with Sanad across multiple areas, increasing our total hangar capacity with the planned acquisition of a hangar from Sanad and leasing additional hangar space and engine storage areas to Sanad to serve their operational needs.
“Our Shared Services agreement with Sanad was reviewed and enhanced to enable us to strengthen our long-standing relationship, increase our capabilities and capacity, serve our customers from around the world better, and strengthen Abu Dhabi’s position as a global aerospace hub.”
Mansoor Janahi, managing director and group chief executive of Sanad which is wholly owned by Abu Dhabi’s sovereign investor Mubadala Investment Company PJSC (Mubadala), said: “These renewed and enhanced arrangements with Etihad Engineering underscore our long-standing relationship and are in line with our commitment to delivering exceptional MRO solutions to our global clientele.
“Through these agreements, we aim to elevate the standards of service in the aviation industry, ensuring optimal outcomes for our customers, and also contribute significantly to positioning Abu Dhabi as a prominent and influential force in the global aviation landscape, reinforcing its commitment to excellence in aviation services on the world stage.”
