This makes PT Indo Kordsa Tbk the second largest tire producer within Kordsa Global, Turkey, in the category of companies engaged in the field of fiber raw material suppliers of tires, nylon fibers, polyester, rayon and nylon yarns for tires.

Cenk Alper said, "Indonesia is a major investment destination that we have chosen rather than other countries. The investment worth US$ 100 million is the largest investment undertaken by the company outside Turkey. With this second plant, our total investment in Indonesia has reached US$ 200 million (approximately Rp 2.5 trillion), while the total production capacity now reaches 105 million tons."

Alper added, "Since 2007 when investing the first time in the Asia Pacific region, the local and global team strives to provide added value by bringing product standards of the Kordsa Global. Our standard is improving quality, reducing costs and improving service. We have to maintain our presence in an increasingly challenging environment."

President Director of PT Indo Kordsa Tbk, Nuri Duzgoren explains, "The second factory covers an area of 24,000 hectares with production capacity of 18 kilotons of tire cord and 14 kilotons of polyester yarn. The new plant is also able to absorb 1,200 workers. We are proud to have managed to expand our plant in Indonesia, and help support the national economy and reduce unemployment rate."

Nuri added, "Currently, the exports of PT Indo Kordsa reach US$ 90.67 million or 48 percent of total sales of US$ 191 million. With additional production capacity, the exports value is expected to increase from US$ 90.67 million to US$ 130 million, while the value of sales in domestic market, given the additional supply, is expected to increase from US$ 99.37 million to US$ 141 million."

Meanwhile, President Director of Sabanci Holding, Mehmet Pakarun said that one of the reasons the company continued to expand in Indonesia is due to the labor force and tenacity of labor in Indonesia.

"The attractiveness of Indonesia is more to the presence of young entrepreneurs and the working spirit of the workforces who always want to work better every day," said Mehmet.

On the same occasion, the Industry Minister who inaugurates the new plant expresses his hope that Indo Kordsa will be more expansive in investing in Indonesia in the next few years, given that, the economy continues to grow and is getting close to the implementation of the ASEAN free trade.

"We are hoping that there will be second, third and more factories in the years to come," Husin said.
