Honeywell, Mubadala subsidiary reach production milestone of one million N95 masks in UAE

Honeywell StrataHoneywell and Mubadala Investment Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Strata Manufacturing, has reached the manufacturing landmark of producing one million N95 masks in Strata’s Al Ain facility

The collaboration is providing critical personal protective equipment (PPE) for the UAE’s front line health workers, while transforming the country into an international exporter of respirator masks to help limit the spread of COVID-19 around the world.

Since opening, the operation has been ramping up to full capacity production and is on track to reach its annual target of producing over 30mn masks. A combined Honeywell and Strata workforce of 70 has increased daily production of PPE to meet growing national requirements as well as support international needs in the future.

Miroslav Kafedzhiev, vice-president and general manager for Honeywell Safety and Productivity Solutions, Middle East, Russia, Turkey and Africa, said, “Our valued, long-term partnership with Strata, coupled with our expertise in producing worker safety technologies, has enabled us to come together quickly to provide a critical PPE solution for medical professionals and the UAE community.

 “We remain committed to protecting workers around the world and look forward to millions more N95 masks to supply local, regional and international markets with this essential equipment during these challenging times.”

Ismail Ali Abdulla, CEO of Strata, added, “In collaboration with our partner, Honeywell, we have been able to rapidly mobilise to provide critical PPE following an unprecedented global requirement for N95 masks in light of the pandemic. This milestone marks the first of many to come as we take an active role in transforming the UAE into an international exporter of much-needed safety equipment.”
