Rockwell Collins Inc. (COL) has said it is in preliminary talks about a partnership with Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Aerospace, as the US aircraft-electronics supplier seeks to boost revenue from foreign markets, Bloomberg has reported. The firm is exploring a tie-up with the unit of Mubadala Development on after-market support, including logistics and repairs on the equipment it sells in the region, CEO Kelly Ortberg said. “We’d bring some know-how and they’d bring the market capacity and facility and people,” Ortberg told the news service in Abu Dhabi. “We’d find some shared arrangement to do that.”
