KUALA LUMPUR (April 2): Leweko Resources Bhd said its subsidiary Dura Technology Sdn Bhd has inked a licensing agreement with India-based Shinde Developers Pte Ltd to allow the Shinde to use Dura's know-how and technology related to ultra-high performance cementitious composite technology.
Under the agreement, Shinde will have the right to manufacture, sell and export a list of products under the Dura brand name within India and other South Asian countries like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
