CORPORATE BRIEF HISTORY
The Industrial estate offers advantages and contribution toward economic development acceleration in Indonesia. The enactment of Law Number 5 Year 1984 about the development of industrial estates in the center of regions has encouraged industrial estate as driving force for the regional economy, which simultaneously also affects the national economy.
Through the presence of industrial estate, manufacture industries will be decentralized as to provide clearer locations, with more sufficient facilities, easier licensing, better infrastructure, more effective and efficient management, as well as better environment impact management.
As one of the oldest industrial estate In Indonesia, PT SIER has supported the development of manufacturing industries in East Java. For about 4 decades, PT SIER has been the center of various industries such as food and beverage industries, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industries, chemical industries, heavy equipments industries, and other types of industries that have provided employment for hundreds of thousands of workers and have created new job opportunities for the people surrounding the area. PT SIER has continuously improved its quality in providing well planned industrial estates, supported by best infrastructures and service excellence.
The Industrial estate itself had just developed in Indonesia in the early 1970 by the Indonesian Government in order to fulfill the investment activities both domestic and foreign. Various government regulations in economic and development has provided a ‘fresh breeze’ for new industries. Economical base which initially was agrarian, gradually turned into industrial economic that provides greater added value. This gives the opportunities for industrial estate development.
The government is fully aware that in order to support government policies in the national economy and development sectors, specifically in industrial estate development and management in the broeadest term, the goverment needs to build industrial area in the center of the region. Therefore, the government decided to develop industrial estate by State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) at several regions such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Cilacap, Medan, Makasar, and Lampung. In 1974, the government established PT Surabaya Industrial Estate Rungkut (SIER) in Surabaya, which stated in Deed No. 166, dated 28 February 1974, signed before Mr. Abdul Latief, Bachelor of Law, a public notary in Surabaya. 28 February since then is commemorated as the anniversary of PT SIER.
At the beginning of its establishment, PT. SIER had released an area of ± 245 Ha at Rungkut, Surabaya (which then divided into Rungkut sub-district, Tenggilis sub-district, and Gunung Anyar sub-district). This location is considered to be strategic because it is located near the toll-road, province road, harbour, and airport as well. Since the land was previously a paddy field area, the ground levelling process was relatively easy due to its flat existing condition.
PT SIER also built a centralized Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) which treats the industrial & domestic waste from the factories in SIER’s industrial area before disposing it to Tambak Oso river. This WWTP has been in operation since 1981.
In 1985, PT SIER expanded the Rungkut area toward the south by acquisitioning ± 87 Ha at Berbek’s region, Waru, Sidoarjo. This area is connected to Rungkut area that stretched out from Rungkut Industri Raya Street until Brigjen Katamso Street in Waru.
Considering the rapid industrial development in East Java, PT SIER has acquisitioned more land in Rembang (Pasuruan) of ± 497 Ha in 1981. This land is located relatively near SIER’s area, which is located in northern seashore between Bangil and Pasuruan. PT. SIER then perfected its facility by building a centralized WWTP in PIER in the year 1995, which capacity has been increased in 2012. The WWTP of PIER became the second largest WWTP in East Java. PIER industrial area is also completed by bonded zone which aimed to facilitate the export-import activity.
Due to the increasing industrial development, PT. SIER also developed various businesses such as leasing of Standard Factory Building (SFB), warehouses, logistic warehouses, Small Scale Industrial Sector (SSIS), and office building as well. In 2000, PT. SIER has also established subsidiary company under the name of PT. Sier Puspa Utama (SPU) which engaged in supplier and contractor services. This aimed to support logistic and supply chain activities of the factories in industrial area.
