Capitalizing on China’s Belt and Road Initiative, the Lesso group, a Chinese large scale industrial group specialized in building materials and interior decoration products recently announced its USD 60 million expansion into Indonesia.
Lesso’s product portfolio spans piping, sanitary ware, integral kitchen, integral doors and windows, decorative plates, water purifiers, fire-fighting equipment, valves and more. The company’s Indonesian ambitions are part of its bid to globalize its business and tap into Indonesia’s huge domestic demand. The group’s Indonesian production base will boast several advanced, automated production lines for pipes and pipe fittings.
The two-phase project will start with 60,000 tons annual production capacity. The company will supply its products to Indonesia and surrounding countries, with an outlook to North America within the next five years. The entire production base will have an annual production capacity of 100,000 tons.
During the construction of its own production base the Group will rent a local Indonesian factory with a capacity of 4,000 tons, to produce plastic pipes and fittings on a small scale from November 2019. The new production base in Indonesia will add to the company’s 23 existing production bases in 16 regions in China.
