Advanced Armour Engineering (AAE), a British-owned armour specialist in the UAE, has signed a long-term agreement with Sharjah Airport International Free Zone (Saif Zone) to establish two advanced factories with a total working area of more than 50,000 sq ft.
Simon Hurst, general manager of AAE, said: “We plan to inaugurate the facility by June 2016. The pre-built facilities will be reconfigured to accommodate the company’s large-scale specialised processing machines.”
Saud Salim Al Mazourei, director of Saif Zone and Hamriyah Free Zone Authority, said: “We welcome AAE to Saif Zone which has emerged as an ideal business hub.”
“We see more industries and more trading companies from Europe and from Russia coming to Sharjah. I hope, AAE’s new initiative in our industrial zone will increase its output and expand its network,” he said.
Specialised in defence and security, transport, architectural metalwork, construction equipment, oil and gas equipment sector and maritime, AAE currently exports to over 12 countries and is firmly seen as the partner of choice of many of the leading blue chip OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) in the region, said a statement from the company.
Hurst added: “AAE is fully conversant in all grades of ballistic steel and metals and works closely with high-strength, wear-resistant and armoured grade steels. Due to our up-to-date knowledge and many years of experience, we are able to assist clients in selecting the right materials for various applications.”
“Our highly trained technicians have more than 25 years' experience in materials processing and design optimisation in both ballistic and blast mitigating steels,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
