Jakarta, 17 March 2023– PT Samator Indo Gas Tbk (Bloomberg Code: AGII IJ or the “Company”) has held a Plant Groundbreaking Event in Kawasan Industri Terpadu Batang (“KITB”) or Grand Batang City, Batang, Central Java. This plant will officially become the Company's 56th plant and scheduled for commissioning in Q4-2024.

On this occasion, Mr. Rachmat Harsono said, "Today we are grateful to have been given the opportunity to officially announce the groundbreaking for our 56th plan at KITB, together with the Government of Central Java, KITB officials, as well as distinguished guests and partners attended today," he said. "This new plant will support our dedication to serve the industrial gas needs in Central Java and to participate in Indonesia’s journey in the Smart and Sustainable Era.”
In his remarks, Mr. Ganjar Pranowo said, “There are not many oxygen suppliers and Samator is one of the biggest. When the pandemic occurred, under the leadership of the late Mr. Arief Harsono, Central Java Province was supported to ensure reliable oxygen supply for the safety of the people. This reminds us how important it is to uphold human values."
"We are pleased that Samator will open a plant in KITB, which will be Samator's largest plant. We believe this area will encourage Indonesia's economic growth and provide the best for our nation," he added.
Mr. Ngurah Wirawan added, "KITB congratulates PT Samator Indo Gas Tbk for carrying out the groundbreaking today. We are very proud of Samator's presence which will definitely add value to this area in providing industrial gas supply for other area tenants. Following KCC Glass, Rumah Keramik, Yih Quan and Wavin, we hope that the construction of the Samator plant can be carried out on time, operate and support employment growth next year."
