Topsoe opens an office in Jakarta, Indonesia. The main reason is the expected growth in areas where Topsoe’s technologies, experience, and capabilities will be beneficial to the customers, which is mainly fertilizer and refining industries, explains the company.
Michael Gruss has been assigned Chief Representative of the new Jakarta office in Kantor Taman E3.3, Unit D2, 3rd Floor, Menara Anugrah, Jl. Mega Kuningan lot 8,6-8,7, Jakarta Selatan 12950, next to the Royal Thai Embassy. It’s not clear yet exactly how many more staff will eventually be employed at the new office.
Jakarta is Topsoe’s second representation in Southeast Asia. The other Haldor Topsoe office is in Kuala Lumpur in A-38-1 Tower A Menara UOA Bangsar, 5 Jala Bangsar Utama 1.
“We have been supporting Indonesian customers for more than four decades. We will now be able to provide them with even faster services tailored to their specific needs,” says Jack H. Carstensen, Managing Director of Topsoe’s office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Indonesia is an important and fast-growing market with numerous needs and opportunities that the new office will help to fulfill.
“It is a crucial milestone in our further expansion in the region, a natural step with regards to the promising development of the Indonesian economy,” says Morten Schaldemose, Executive Vice President, Refinery Business Unit, who was also present at the inauguration.
There is an expected growth in ammonia demand in Indonesia from the fertilizer industry, in methanol production as feedstock for the downstream petrochemical industry, and in DME as the alternative to LPG for household use. Topsoe will offer the fertilizer industry solutions to enhance plant efficiency and optimise energy consumption.
“We are well prepared to complement the current and future strive of Indonesian companies to enhance their production – and to grow locally and regionally,” says Michael Gruss, Chief Representative of the new office in Jakarta.
