Brenntag Opens Jakarta Distribution Facility

February 16, 2011

A new distribution facility in Jakarta has been built to meet Brenntag’s growing market demand. The facility will provide a bigger storage capacity than the current warehouse in Jakarta, and allow the company to improve and expand value-added customer support throughout the supply chain.

In Indonesia, Brenntag markets specialty and industrial chemicals for a variety of applications, including coatings, textile, rubber, plastics and polymers, polyurethanes, and minerals. The new facility adds to the company’s seven existing warehouses in Indonesia and Brenntag’s growing distribution network in the Asia Pacific region, which also includes more than 40 distribution centers.

“We’ve seen growth in the demand for chemical distribution in the Asia Pacific region, especially in Indonesia,” said Steven Holland, COO. “By expanding our local presence, we are making an investment to better serve our customers with advanced support and meet growing market demand; it will also strengthen our presence in the region.”

“The new facility will further bolster Brenntag’s ability to provide a number of services, including storage, re-packing large-scale quantities into smaller quantities, delivery and other supply chain solutions,” said Henri Nejade, president and CEO of Brenntag Asia Pacific.

Built on a 10,000-square-meter plot of land in MM2100 Industrial Town in Cibitung in West Java, the new facility has a storage capacity of 5,000 square meters of floor area with 6,600 pallet position.
