KIIC Director Sanny Iskandar said the new area development was aligned with the business transformation, which is currently heading for an economic digitalization. All industrial sectors thus should follow the trend. “There have been quite high demands for industrial lands specifically for data centers, electric vehicles and supporting components, supply chain industries for e-commerces, and more. This extension therefore shows the KIIC’s commitment to seize the opportunity.”

KIIC is a joint venture project between Sinar Mas Land and Japan’s ITOCHU Corporation, both have been working together for 30 years to develop the Karawang industrial zone. The project has won the “Best Industrial Zone” award from the Ministry of Industry. KIIC is certified with ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment), and ISO 45001 (Health & Safety), while in 2020 it received a blue status in the Company Performance Rank Evaluation Program in Environmental Management, locally known as PROPER, from the Environment and Forestry Ministry.

“With a National Vital Object (OVNI) status, we prioritize service and safety in investment for the tenants. With this land extension, KIIC is positive that we can hit the sales target of roughly Rp750 billion by 2022. On this new 105 hectares of land, KIIC welcomes all investors,” says Sanny.

This international industrial zone is supported by its strategic location which everyone can directly reach from the West Karawang Toll Gate 2. KIIC possesses comprehensive infrastructure and facilities, one of which is an environmental laboratory facility to test the tenants’ wastewater samples, to support investments. KIIC is developed according to an industrial zone concept that combines manufacturing industries and other facilities directly related to the industries (rental warehouse, rental factory and office, commercial area, etc), and those are safely separated from the residential areas development.
