The WACKER Group’s activities in the Middle East and Africa date back to 1980s, working with various local partners and distributors. A fully-owned WACKER subsidiary was established in Dubai to service this region in 1999, and, in the year 2002, the Technical Center was launched as a development and testing lab for construction-chemistry applications.
In recent years, WACKER Chemicals Middle East witnessed a double-digit growth across its territory. The Munich-based company focuses on providing the region with high-quality and state-of-the-art chemicals that cater to both the construction and the infrastructure sectors.
