Ducab, one of the UAE’s largest manufacturing businesses, is consolidating its metal operations into a new subsidiary.
DMB is a dedicated business unit within the Ducab Group of companies supplying Made in UAE copper and aluminium solutions, the company said in a statement.
Ducab Aluminium Company (DAC) and Ducab Copper Rod Plant, which have over 160 employees between them, are included under the DMB umbrella.
The company said DMB exports 75 percent 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 over AED2 billion in revenue.
DMB will be focused on serving the needs of all its customers – principally companies in the electrical manufacturing industry.
It 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.
Dr 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.
"In 2019 we increased our copper capacity by 30 percent to 175,000 tonnes and this enhanced capacity, along with our 50,000 tonnes of aluminium, will allow us to grow the number of markets we serve.”
