PARIS, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Saint-Gobain announces that it will soon break ground for a plasterboard plant near
Jakarta to respond more effectively to local demand and pursue its development in the
fast-growing Indonesian plasterboard market. This new facility will strengthen
Saint-Gobain Gypsum’s presence in Southeast Asia, where it already operates four plants in
Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Project costs are estimated at EUR35 million for a
production capacity of 30 million square meters/year.
This new facility will give Saint-Gobain six plants in Indonesia, where the Group
already produces Abrasives and Industrial Mortars. With its strong growth potential, large
and resilient domestic market and vibrant construction industry, Indonesia plays a key
role in Saint-Gobain’s strategic development in Southeast Asia.
