Since 2005 Schütz has been operating in Jakarta with a distribution company. However, in 2013 a new factory was built fitted with state-of-the-art manufacturing lines at Karawang, 50km east of the capital.
The production of IBCs started at the new site at the end of last year and has since then been optimised to meet customer demands. The inauguration on 28 August featured traditional dance performances and the symbolic cutting of a ribbon.
In order to address the special needs of the food industry the site is currently undergoing the FSSC 22000 certification process, which after completion will ensure and document safety and purity standards in materials, production process and end product. For all guests, the key statement at the inauguration event was that Schütz is committed to building its position in South-East Asia, and that its portfolio offers innovative, sustainable and secure transport packaging for a wide range of filling goods including acids, varnishes, paints or concentrates, foods and cosmetics.
