Reichle & De-Massari AG

Reichle & De-Massari AG (R&M) is behind the network implementation project at Istanbul Grand Airport (IGA). Connecting thousands of cameras, card readers and a data centre with 9,000km of cabling, R&M is playing a vital role in readying the facility for its 200 million passengers each year.

Etihad Engineering

Etihad Engineering’s impressive string of MRO feats, including the first 12-year check on an A380, is largely down to its investment in its facilities and technical staff. The numerous stand-out engineering achievements it has notched up has helped it to assume a dominant position in world MRO.


Ploughing $70 million into a project to transform a retired 747 into a flying testbed, Rolls-Royce has been able to analyse more flight test data than ever before. Rolls’ project is helping the company to push engineering and technological advancements in jet engines further than ever.

Al Naboodah Construction Group

UAE contracting giant Al Naboodah Construction Group completed the revamp of Dubai International Airport’s (DXB) southern runway within 45 days, allowing the airport to continue operating with the minimal possible impact. It worked around the clock on the high-intensity project, including the removal of 6,000 inset runway lights, and milling 407,000m2 of runway and taxiway surfaces.

Strata Manufacturing

Implementing robotics systems within its manufacturing processes, Strata started last year with a bang. The firm then called on its engineering innovation to support the world’s first super versatile private jet and added to its capabilities to support 787 Dreamliner vertical fins.
