'Indonesia has potential to be self-sufficient in apparel'

Indonesia has potential to become self-sufficient in clothing production but it is necessary that all companies work together, Irman Gusman, chairman of the House of Regional Representatives (DPD) said during a visit to PT Sri Rejeki isman Tbk (Sritex) in Sukoharjo, Central Java.
 
Mr. Gusman explained that a company engaged in the manufacturing of apparel needs to synchronize with other firms that are in rayon plantation, pulp industry, yarn manufacturing, and fabric production, an official statement said.
 
He said the domestic companies are not working together for meeting domestic needs. For example, there are pulp companies that are exporting their products, while there are other local companies that import textile fibre from abroad.
 
He hoped that the domestic companies would work together to make Indonesia self-sufficient in clothing. According to him, “A great nation is one that is self-sufficient in food, clothing, and energy.”
 
Mr. Gusman praised the success of Sritex in building an integrated textile and clothing factory, ranging from production of yarn and fabric to making finished garments. The company also manufactures military uniforms for 30 countries.
 
Sritex president Iwan Setiawan Lukminto said he is continuing the business started by his parents in 1966. He informed that the company is expanding its production facility from the current built area of 70 hectares to 130 hectares.
 
Sritex has also bagged order for making uniforms for the German army. Mr. Lukminto said it is not easy to meet the German requirement as it has to meet several parameters, including material quality factors, environmental norms, human rights regulations and ISO standards. He said that Sritex is meeting all parameters as requested by Germany.
 
After successfully making uniforms for the German army, Sritex looks forward to producing military uniforms for NATO and several other countries, he added.
