The Group's business contacts with Indonesia date back to the time around 1875. Regular supplies of railway material to Indonesia took place from 1876. More than 49.000 tons of rails were delivered to Indonesia up to the year 1890.
After locomotives were added to the company's product range in 1919, Class 1C1 tender locomotives were supplied to the Dutch Indian State Railway in Java in the years thereafter. In 1976, 64% of Indonesia's diesel locomotives were from Essen.
In 1961, the Indonesian government commissioned a consortium of Krupp, Siemens and Dr. Otto to build a blast furnace plant in Lampong including coke plant and steam power station. Up to the Asia crisis, it was mainly today's Business Area Industrial Solutions that was successful in Indonesia. Among other things ThyssenKrupp Polysius built cement plants and coal grinding plants here, while ThyssenKrupp Fördertechnik supplied dredgers to Indonesia.
Today, the main sales areas are products of the Business Areas Industrial Solutions and Steel Europe. Since many years ThyssenKrupp has operated a Group Representative Office in Jakarta. In 2005 our Business Area Elevator Technology opened a sales and service company in Jakarta with almost 160 employees in fiscal year 2012/2013.
All details relate to the 2012/2013 fiscal year, Annual Report, as of September 30, 2013.
