Attending the event for the first time, DMB is a leading global provider of copper and aluminium products and has played a key role in taking ‘Made in the Emirates’ products to the world, championing in-country value for local solutions at an international level. It was established in 2020 as a new metals brand and a business segment of Ducab Group.
DMB is the only company in the MENA region that produces both copper and aluminium products and it is one of three metal producers in the UAE.
As the company’s reputation is growing, its customer base continues to widen with new markets this year including Germany, France, Czech Republic, Romania, and Colombia. Its 2021 revenues were AED5.1 billion (almost US$1.4 bn).

Our participation at Wire Düsseldorf reflects our commitment in Europe which has a very strong focus on the transition to renewable energy and reducing carbon emissions.”
DMB produces a full range of bunched copper wire products, tailormade to customer requirements, for use in building wires and cables.
