Endress+Hauser sets up a new subsidiary in Indonesia
In over two decades since it entered the market, Endress+Hauser Endress+Hauser (Reinach, Switzerland; www.endress.com), a global leader in instrumentation and process automation solutions, has established itself in Indonesia as a supplier of high-quality measuring instruments and solutions. To strengthen this position, its long-time sales partner in Jakarta will join the Endress+Hauser Group as an independent Endress+Hauser company as of 1 January 2013. “We are convinced that our own distribution company will allow us to serve our customers even better,” says Michael Ziesemer, COO of the Endress+Hauser Group. “Indonesia offers an interesting framework for future growth.”
Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago country consisting of more than 17,000 islands stretching from Sumatra to Papua and is the fourth largest populated country in the world with more than 240 million people. The country’s economic growth has consistently been above 6% in the past years, one of the highest in the region. Endress+Hauser is active in all areas of process technology in Indonesia with focus on chemicals, mining, oil & gas, water & wastewater, power & energy, as well as the food & beverage and the pulp & paper industry.
Endress+Hauser’s presence in Indonesia stretches back to 1991 when the company entered a partnership with a local representative, Grama Bazita, for the sales of its products, services and solutions. Today, what was once a small business has grown into a company with 100 employees. The head office in Jakarta, branches in Medan and Surabaya and offices in Pakanbaru, Bontang, Balikpapan and Semarang guarantee a strong support network. “With its first-class range of products and services as well as a consistent focus on the needs of the customer, Endress+Hauser has set new standards in Indonesia,” says Rajesh Malhotra, managing director of the new Endress+Hauser sales center. “The right time has come for us to continue to grow as a part of the Endress+Hauser Group.”
