Optimum Deliver Procurement Transformation Programme for Strata Manufacturing

At Optimum Procurement, we’ve seen a fundamental market shift towards procurement transformation services in recent years. As a result, we’re increasingly serving a more diverse range of clients with their own unique set of requirements, who truly value the integrated end-to-end solutions we offer.

Optimum has recently completed an extensive procurement transformation contract with Strata Manufacturing PJSC (STRATA) the composite aero-structures manufacturing facility based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Strata operate partnerships with the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers, Airbus and Boeing, as well as tier one suppliers including Alenia Aermacchi, FACC AG, SAAB and S.A.B.C.A. Strata is wholly owned by Mubadala Development Company PJSC (Mubadala), the Abu Dhabi-based investment and development company.

Optimum was selected to lead the multi-faceted procurement transformation programme through 2016, focused on developing Strata’s procurement capability to best in class standard. Work streams included a review of procurement strategy, processes, organisation, people, systems and Management Information.

Optimum designed and implemented a bespoke service solution to include staff competency frameworks and assessments, complimented by supplier relationship management training and a strategic sourcing toolbox. Category management process mapping and a systems capability review were also included.

Ms. Sara Mohammad Al Ahbabi, Senior Procurement Manager at Strata commented: “Strata is committed to create a sustainable advantage via developing best-in-class procurement systems which maximize value for its customers. Optimum Procurement Group has been a trusted partner in advancing our capabilities in this area.” 

Mark Fadel, General Manager at Optimum Middle East concluded: “Our selection and success in supporting Strata on their procurement transformation journey further validates our growing reputation as a leading provider of procurement services within the MENA region.

The outcome has been a step change in procurement capability enhancing Strata’s impressive integrated supply chain, producing high quality components for the next generation of commercial aircraft.”
