DUBAI — Abu Dhabi-based Advanced Military Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Center (AMMROC) has signed a $5.8 billion with the UAE Armed forces, described as the crowning moment of a five-year relationship.

The announcement, made today by the Mubadala-owned company, will give AMMROC responsibility to ensure the operational readiness of the armed forces inventory of fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, including military aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul services.

AMMROC Chief Executive Brig. Gen. Fahed Al Shamesi said the signing represents the trust the UAE Armed Forces has in his company’s ability to provide support and readiness.

Launched in July 2010, AMMROC is a joint venture company owned by Mubadala Aerospace, Sikorsky Aerospace Services and Lockheed Martin; it is headquartered in Abu Dhabi.

According to Al Shamesi, the company will provide support services for the next two years, initially to all UAE military aircraft.

“This includes the Air Force, Navy, special forces, presidential guards and the Army,” he told Defense News. The agreement will enable the UAE Armed Forces to remain focused on aircraft operations while AMMROC provides maintenance and repair services, he added.

This also reinforces AMMROC’s vision to operate a world class facility providing a self-sustaining, commercially viable platform for the UAE Armed Forces.

The General Headquarters of the UAE Armed Forces anticipates entering into a performance based logistics arrangement with AMMROC, the company said in a statement.
