M&I Materials (M&I) is part of a trade mission organised by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) to Singapore and Malaysia.  The trade mission is named Northern Powerhouse to promote the strength and skills of companies based in the North which significantly contribute to the countries growth and success.

As part of the trade mission, M&I Materials Limited will be showcasing its success in manufacturing Specialist Materials for Industry and Science, with a portfolio of successful brands including APIEZON®, METROSIL®, MIDEL® and WOLFMET®, serving the following sectors:

  • Power transmission and distribution

M&I Materials is represented during the trade mission by John Hosker, Sales Director for its Dielectric Fluids division. Mr. Hosker commented today "We are delighted to be part of the Northern Powerhouse initiative. As a robust manufacturing company with an excellent track record in export sales, M&I Materials is a great example of UK quality and Northern innovation."

The company's participation in the trade mission coincides with two important announcements made today by M&I;

1. M&I Materials Middle East Limited is pleased to announce BEKAL HIKMAT as their local representative in Malaysia for its world leading synthetic (MIDEL 7131) or natural ester (MIDEL eN) dielectric transformer fluid brands.

2. M&I Materials Limited is pleased to announce the establishment of a new technical sales office in Dubai to support customers throughout the Middle East and demonstrates its further commitment to the region.
