On November 9, 2023, PT Wilo Indonesia, the local subsidiary of the Dortmund-based water pumps and pump system solutions provider Wilo, inaugurated its new office in North Jakarta, Indonesia, further announcing its plan to expand its operations in the country.
Organized by EKONID, the inauguration of the larger office at Altira Business Park, Blocks A01-A07 3rd Floor, Sunter Jaya, marks a significant milestone in the Wilo’s Indonesia commitment to drive innovation, enhance customer satisfaction, and foster sustainable growth in the industry.
"We are pleased to announce the inauguration of our expanded new office at Altira Business Park," said David Haliyanto, Managing Director at Wilo Indonesia. "This inauguration reflects our dedication to providing the best products and services to our customers in Indonesia. We remain committed to leveraging our expertise and advanced technology to address the continuously evolving needs in this industry and contribute to sustainable development."
Wilo SE, a European public company (Societas Europaea), has a long history since the establishment of the Louis Opländer copper and brass factory in Dortmund in 1872. Over 150 years, Wilo has cemented its position as a leading supplier of pumps, systems, and premium pump system solutions.
Since its establishment in 2008, Wilo Indonesia has grown to become a significant player in the pump industry. In addition to the headquarters in Jakarta, Wilo Indonesia also has several strategically placed representative offices located in Palembang, Surabaya, Balikpapan, and Makassar.
Alongside the new office inauguration, Wilo also announced its plans to expand its operation in Indonesia with a new assembly plant that would be built in Cikarang, Bekasi, just west of Jakarta.
Targeted to be completed next year, the 2 million euro (roughly Rp 33.5 billion) plant is expected to further bolster Wilo’s position in the Indonesian water pump and pump system solutions provider market.
Wilo Group Director Sales Area Southeast Asia Mrs. Eva Kerstholt, who also attended the inauguration, said: “I’m looking forward to our investment in the new assembly plant here in Indonesia because it shows the commitment of the group to Southeast Asia. Indonesia, in particular, is the biggest market for us. It’s our biggest company in the whole of Southeast Asia with 50% of our regional sales volume.”
Deputy Mayor of North Jakarta Mr. Juaini Yusuf, in representing the local government, appreciated Wilo’s commitment to providing water pump solutions to Jakarta, saying that the city “acknowledges Wilo’s excellent product and attention to the public and the environment, specifically in flood handling and mitigation.”
“We hope that with the new office, we can have more collaboration and contribute to the development needs of Jakarta,” he added.
