In a move to further expand its presence in the Russian Federation, Dow Wire & Cable, a subsidiary of Dow Chemical Co., has signed a license agreement with Russia’s Uncomtech Group, the country’s largest cable holding company based on copper conversion.
Under the terms of the agreement, Uncomtech will use Dow’s Endurance range insulation, semiconductive and jacketing materials to manufacture medium and high voltage power cables.
The partnership is part of Dow’s “Inside” program, a recent initiative that targets cable manufacturers, utilities and telecommunications firms.
Midland, Mich.-based Dow signed a similar agreement – its first in the Federation – with Russia’s Sevkabel Holding in June 2011.
“This partnership gives us important advantages in terms of materials, technologies, supply and support,” said Andrey Pisanny, Uncomtech’s financial director. “We will be able to differentiate our cables and provide our customers with cables that meet strict international quality standards.”
