PT Semen Indonesia, the country’s largest cement manufacturer, will invest around Rp.5 trillion of capital expenditure to increase production capacity. The funding will help the company meet its target of boosting sales by 8% y/y in 2014 (from 27.8 million t in 2013).
As reported by The Jakarta Post, PT Semen Indonesia is aiming to increase its production output to 31.8 million t of cement in 2014, a 6% y/y rise compared to 30 million t in 2013. The company has also set an additional target of 40 million t in 2017.
Additional production capacity in 2014 will come from the company’s 900 000 tpa cement facility in Dumai, which is currently under construction. The newly opened 3 million tpa Tonasa V plant in Pangkep, South Sulawesi, will also boost production capacity.
Approximately Rp.5 trillion will be invested in the construction of new facilities in Padang, West Sumatra, and Rembang, Central Java, enhancing existing production capacity, the building of two new packing plants and finance operations.
