Ducab Aluminium Company officially inaugurated

Ducab Aluminium Company (DAC) in the Khalifa Industrial Zone of Abu Dhabi (Kizad) was recently inaugurated as a joint venture between Ducab, the UAE-based manufacturer of cables and cabling products, and Senaat, a holding company in the UAE industry. The new company is the result of an AED220m (USD60m) investment that seeks to strengthen the UAE’s industrial supply chain.

DAC cooperates with Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) by supplying molten aluminium to the facility along Kizad’s Hot Metal Road. DAC will manufacture 50,000 tpy of high quality electrical grade aluminium rod and overhead conductor once it reaches full capacity for the supply of both local and international customers. The new company will thus substitute substantial imports of aluminium rods and overhead lines into the UAE and help build a competitive edge for ‘Made-in-UAE’ industrial products. DAC has already signed rod supply contracts to service customers across the GCC, India, Lebanon, North America. Further expansions are being planned for Latin America and Europe as DAC targets export sales of over AED300m in 2018.
