Located in Moscow and being the only representation office of Umicore on the territory of the former Soviet Union, UMS Russia is serving a variety of different market segments and territories of what is currently called CIS countries.
Focusing mainly on different raw materials sourcing from Russia and CIS countries in the late nineties, within the following years the office activities also developed in the direction of promotion and sales of the wide range of Umicore products within Russian & CIS markets.
