Strategic Collaboration Takes Flight: Aerometals and AAL Group Ltd Forge Services Agreement

Posted by Admin

Sharjah, UAE, April 24, 2024: Aerometals and AAL Group Ltd have come to a service agreement that appoints AAL as an exclusive provider of Product and Installation Services in the surrounding Middle East Territory for the Aerometals MI-17 Inlet Barrier Filters (IBF).
