Trumpf Indonesia held the official grand opening of its new Trumpf Technology Center in Delta Silicon V in Cikarang, Bekasi, on May 19. Sporting a new building, a new showroom floor for its machineries, as well as a larger space for future growth, the new Trumpf Technology Center cements Trumpf’s committment to its customers in Indonesia and in the Southeast Asian region.

“Indonesia is one of our main pillars of business here in Southeast Asia. After Thailand, it is now the second strongest market in SEA.... And now we are over here, with all the more we can offer, we expect big increase of sales in the future,” said Mr. Joerg Ellerkmann, Managing Director Asia Pacific of the Singapore-located TRUMPF Pte Ltd.

The grand opening was done with a ribbon cutting ceremony and a symbolic planting of a tree, which conveys Trumpf’s committment to having a sustainable and long-lasting presence in Indonesia.

Accompanied by Trumpf Chief Representative Officer Mr. Stephen Sidharta and Trumpf General Manager Mr. Adrian Lim, Mr. Ellerkmann welcomed the participants and expressed his gratitude to customers, partners and the employees of PT Trumpf Indonesia for their faithful cooperation and outstanding commitment.

As a guest of honor Ms. Ute Brockmann, Deputy Managing Director of EKONID, cordially congratulated the company on behalf of the Chamber for the continuous successful development of its business with prospects of EKONID’s further support for Trumpf’s future business activities in Indonesia. 

Trumpf opened its Indonesian subsidiary in 2009 and was initially located at the German Centre in Bumi Serpong Damai in Tangerang, just outside of the country’s capital city of Jakarta. Mr. Ellerkmann said this initial location was too far from most of its customer.

In this new location, aside from having a new showroom for its machines, customers could expect faster service as the company would be expanding its capacity. Some services to be expected, he said, may include providing refurbished machines at lower costs, as well as on-site spare parts to be stored in a new warehouse, according to Mr. Ellerkmann. Trumpf is further poised to increase its presence in Indonesia, with Mr. Ellerkmann saying that Trumpf was further looking into expanding to other major Indonesian islands.

Philipus Arifin Basuki President Director and CEO of PT Bina Widya Aksara, a sheet-metal product engineering and fabrication company, and a local customer of Trumpf, expressed his appreciation for the new building and location.

“It’s better than before,” Mr. Basuki said. “I hope they can serve us better because support is number one for this kind of venture.”
