Orbital ATK expands operations in the UAE
Orbital ATK, a global leader in aerospace and defence technologies, is planning for future growth in its Middle-East business along with its Emirates partner, Al Tuff International, part of the Remah International Group. Orbital ATK’s joint venture, Orbital ATK Middle East is co-locating with Al Tuff International in the Addax Commercial Tower on Al Reem Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), to support the company’s growing regional defence business. Jay Huston has been recently been named as General Manager of Orbital ATK Middle East and joins the organisation with many years of experience in the UAE and the greater Middle East.
Orbital ATK and Al Tuff International first joined in opening a branch office in Abu Dhabi in March 2010. Orbital ATK Middle East is an extension of Orbital ATK’s commitment to provide defence product sales and services to customers in the UAE related to its core competencies in small-, medium- and large-calibre ammunition production; precision and strike munitions; special mission aircraft; and BUSHMASTER cannons.
“Orbital ATK has supported our Emirati ally for many years,” Mike Kahn, President of Orbital ATK’s Defense Systems Group, explained. “Our commitment to the Emirates is further enhanced through our local partnership in Orbital ATK Middle East LLC as we demonstrate our commitment to being a strong regional partner.”
“We will continually strive to add value in the Emirates by the introduction of innovative products, services and technologies,” Nigel Sutton, Vice President International for Orbital ATK’s Defense Systems Group and Chairman of the Board of Orbital ATK Middle East, continued. “Our company shares the national goal of Emiratization and supports key partner organizations like the Emirates Defence Industries Companies, Tawazun and Mubadala in achieving their objectives. Orbital ATK Middle East LLC will continue to enhance the defence capability of UAE by expanding its key industrial partnerships.”
