Ducab, one of the UAE’s largest manufacturing businesses, is hiving off its metal operations into a new subsidiary, Ducab Metals Business (DMB). It is a dedicated business unit under the Ducab Group, supplying “Made in UAE” copper and aluminium solutions to a global customer base. The Ducab Aluminium Company and the Ducab Copper Rod Plant, which have over 160 employees between them, are included in the DMB umbrella. DMB’s customers will mainly include companies in the electrical manufacturing industry. DMB will design solutions, which will be manufactured in its existing copper rod and aluminium factories, both of which are based in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
