Ducab’s mission is to produce electric cables and associated products of highest quality and provide customer service that is unequalled worldwide. As one of the founding members of Dubai Quality Group, we strongly believe that the relentless pursuit of quality and continuous improvement is the only long-term route to success. As a result, in 1993, at a time when Quality Management Systems and ISO 9000 standards were relatively unknown in the region, Ducab achieved certification to ISO 9002.
Ducab has always upgraded and maintained its Quality Management Systems to the latest version of ISO 9001 and this is evident from recent approval to its 2008 version certification. Our management systems and products are certified by BASEC UK (British Approvals Services for Electric Cables), a specialist certification body in the cable industry.
As our policy at Ducab is to manufacture electrical power cables of the highest quality, our Management Systems are audited at regular intervals by BASEC UK, Lloyd’s Register UK, LPCB UK and ESMA UAE. In addition, our factory operations and management systems are also audited and approved by major customers such as DEWA, ADWEA, EMAL, ABB, SIEMENS, AREVA and ALDAR.
Ducab's Total Quality Management philosophy has enabled it to stand out amongst the Middle Eastern and other international cable manufacturers and compete with the best in the world. Today, Ducab is regarded as a world-class quality cable company.
SIX Sigma, Kaizen and 5 'S'
As part of our continual improvements objective, we have also adopted the Six Sigma methodology pioneered by Motorola and to date more than 20% of our staff and Engineers are trained and certified Six Sigma Professionals. At Ducab Six Sigma methodology is the acknowledged method of improving product quality and company performance in all areas of the business. Ducab became the first company in the Middle East to tie-up with the Motorola University to adopt this unique approach and attain new standards in quality management.
Ducab has also embraced the Japanese continuous improvement philosophy 'KAIZEN' and 5 'S', which have been successfully implemented to gain significant advantages. Ducab has implemented the Japanese 5 'S' System that aims to make the working environment more conducive for productivity, innovation and efficiency.
