Etihad Engineering has announced the extension of its long-standing business relationship with Sanad, owned by Abu Dhabi’s sovereign investor Mubadala Investment Company PJSC (Mubadala). Together, Etihad Engineering and Sanad deliver services to aviation clients worldwide from Etihad Engineering's 545,000-square-meter, recently expanded MRO facility adjacent to Abu Dhabi International Airport.

“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,” said Daniel Hoffmann, CEO of Etihad Engineering.
“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,” Hoffmann added.
