- IBC manufacturer starts production 50km East of Jakarta
- Strengthening of delivery security
- Undergoing certification process to address needs of food industry
German Schutz GmbH & Co. KGaA opened its own production facility in Karawang, 50 kilometres east of the capital Jakarta, Indonesia. The company has been operating in Jakarta since 2005 with a distribution company.
IBCs further optimised to meet local customer demands
The production of IBCs started at the new site at the end of last year and has since then been further optimised to meet customer demands. The site has now been officially inaugurated in an opening ceremony held on 28 August. Gertjan Boom, Business Unit Manager Asia/Pacific, and Ricky Lie, General Manager of PT. Schütz Container Systems Indonesia, welcomed numerous guests from industry, business and politics. Many customers from the food, pharmaceuticals and chemical industry also attended the event.
Shorter transport distances
The new subsidiary further strengthens delivery security and shortens transport distances in the South-East Asian market. In terms of population, Indonesia is the fourth-biggest country in the world and its specific geography poses special challenges. According to the company, optimised logistics combined with a close proximity to customers are the company’s primary goals. In order to address the special needs of the food industry the site is presently undergoing the FSSC 22000 certification process, which after completion will ensure and document the
highest safety and purity standards in materials, the production process and the end product.
