“One of WCA’s key ambitions is to more effectively engage emerging-market players in the global cement ecosystem,” explained Ian Riley, CEO at WCA. “We are therefore particularly pleased to welcome Semen Indonesia to our global community and look forward to the valuable contribution they will be able to make to our efforts, to share and improve best practice among members.”
Semen Indonesia maintains an annual production capacity of 51 million tpy, which is shipped to customers across Indonesia, as well as Sri Lanka, UAE, Yemen, Philippines, China, Australia, India, Bangladesh, Africa, Timor-Leste and other countries. The company also has cement plants in Aceh, West Sumatera, Java, South Sulawesi and Vietnam. It represents approximately 53% of Indonesia’s domestic cement sales.
“At Semen Indonesia, our guiding principle is that we are building the power of advancing Indonesia, and while we are very proud of what we have achieved to date, our ability to collaborate with partners internationally will be ever more important as we move forward with the next stage of growth for both our company and our country,” said Hendi Prio Santoso.
