Ducab opens new metals subsidiary

DUCAB Musaffahfactory 2020 03 03 CroppedDucab, one of the UAE’s largest manufacturing businesses, is consolidating its metal operations into a new subsidiary - DMB, a dedicated business unit within the Ducab group of companies supplying “Made in UAE” copper and aluminium solutions

Ducab Aluminium Company (DAC) and Ducab Copper Rod Plant, which has over 160 employees between them are included under the DMB umbrella.

DMB exports 75 per cent of its production to more than 35 countries in the wider Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. In 2019, Ducab’s copper and aluminium business generated more than US$544mn (AED 2billion) in revenue.

DMB, a stand-alone company within Ducab group and the only company in the region to provide both copper and aluminium solutions, will be focused on serving the needs of all its customers – principally companies in the electrical manufacturing industry, the statement said. DMB will have the capacity to design solutions which will be manufactured in DMB’s existing copper rod and aluminium factories, both of which are based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, it added.

Ahmad Bin Hassan Al Shaikh, chairman of Ducab, said, “The launch of DMB aligns with the growth of the metals segment within Ducab and gives us the opportunity to focus a dedicated team on the needs of our metal customers.”

Mohamed Al Ahmedi, the newly appointed general manager of DMB, added, “By further developing our capacity for metals solutions and services, DMB can contribute to the UAE’s flourishing industrial supply chain and contribute to the UAE’s strategy to champion industrial investments.”
