New production site in Indonesia for Schütz

The official opening of the company’s own production facility in Indonesia sees Schütz continuing the sustainable development of the company’s network in South East Asia.

Schütz has been operating in Jakarta since 2005 with a distribution company. In Karawang, 50km east of the island-nation’s capital city, a new factory was built fitted with state-of-the-art manufacturing lines in 2013.

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, which featured traditional dance performances and the symbolic cutting of a ribbon. 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, including Governor representative Ir Dedi Mulyadia and Dr. Cellica Nurrachadiana, Vice Regent of Karawang. Many customers from the food, pharmaceuticals and chemical industry also attended the event. In a tour of the factory, guests were shown how Schütz’s packaging solutions are produced with the highest degree of energy efficiency thanks to modern technology.

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 – the country is spread over more than 17,000 islands, of which only around 6000 are inhabited. Accordingly, optimised logistics combined with a close proximity to customers are Schütz’s primary goals. The advantages are reduced use of fuels, a better eco balance and higher cost efficiency.

The packaging products manufactured in Karawang also offer customers solutions for a wide range of applications. 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. For all guests, the key statement at the inauguration event was that Schütz is committed to continually building its position in South East Asia, and that its wide portfolio offers innovative, sustainable and secure transport packaging for a wide range of filling goods including acids, varnishes, paints or concentrates, foods and cosmetics.
