Polindo Utama was established in 2005 as a response to the growing global momentum for recycled plastic materials. The company has quickly expanded to become the largest manufacturer of recycled polyester chips and PET flakes in Indonesia that are used in a wide range of industries including textiles, packaging and bottling.
At the core of the business is the focus on ensuring the highest standards in the quality control of raw source materials through the employment of manual sorting. Environmental efficiency in the manufacturing process itself is also strongly adhered to as the only manufacturer in the sector to have water treatment facilities. The company is also preparing to receive the ‘Green Label’ for use on its products which certifies that they are fully recyclable. The adherence to the most stringent international standards for its products and work environment has allowed the company to consistently meet the needs of customers in North America, Europe and China in addition to the domestic market.
Remaining sensitive to global trends in its future strategy and product portfolio; Polindo Utama will build on its expertise to move into the manufacture of high end, food grade plastic and has plans to open up a fully recycled bottling plant by 2017.
