Japan’s Hitachi Construction Machinery is establishing a new remanufacturing plant in Bekasi, east of Jakarta, to recycle components for medium-sized and large hydraulic shovels.
Covering 900 square meters, Hitachi’s new plant will dismantle, clean, and repair used parts such as hydraulic cylinders, pumps, and traveling equipment for them to be remanufactured. The remanufactured products will be sold in South East Asian markets at about half the price of brand new products. According to Hitachi Construction Machinery’s projection, the remanufacturing business’s sales in South East Asia can go up to JPY 400 million to 500 million (USD 3.6 million to 4.5 million) in the fiscal year 2023.
Hitachi’s remanufacturing business will also help to reduce CO2 emissions and industrial waste. The plant is expected to become an important base for the supply of remanufactured parts in South East Asia.
