INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The acceleration of infrastructure continues to be encouraged by the government to make heavy equipment demand to increase significantly, it also felt by PT Komatsu Indonesia.

"So far our production is high, demand is also remarkable. Our production situation returns to 2010 so our production facilities are quite busy," said President Director of PT Komatsu Indonesia, Pratjojo Dewo in Jakarta, Wednesday (13/12/2017).

He added, when our installed capacity reaches 3,000 units per year. With a total workforce of 1,700 workers. "We are targeting until the end of the year production reached 2,000 units," he explained.

According to him, the sector that is still sexy for next year is the infrastructure and mining sectors. "Of course, the massive infrastructure sector until the end of 2019 is already visible, then the mining sector, the coal itself is still at a good price and the demand from the mining industry is still quite good," he explained.

Related utilities, he revealed, currently our utility increased by 80%. Previously we had almost full 100% in 2011. "Last year we were very low, for this year we have up to 80%," added Pratjojo.

When asked about investment next year, Pratjojo said, we have regular investments mainly to increase productivity levels. "So it's not just adding machines, but increasing productivity especially starts again with automation," he concluded.
