In 2013, Mr. Andrés Matos, Morichal Corp´s representative in Asia, had several meetings with the APP plants representatives at a fair in Yakarta, Indonesia. In these meetings negotiations were held and prices were agreed on the first import of products of two of the plants of APP. These plants are: Indah Kiat y PT. Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia. APP is one of the biggest producers of paper in the world.
Morichal Corp´s General Manager, Mr. Thierry Dumoulin, arrived on April 2014 at Surabaya, Indonesia and visited the APP plants. At that moment, he negotiated a Distribution Agreement for Latin America. Morichal Corp and APP agreed that Morichal Corp would buy paper products from two of APP plants. APP has a very large production of paper couché, reverse white cardboard and the reverse of newspaper. Couché paper is mainly used by book editorials and other graphical art companies. The reverse white cardboard is used in the pharmaceutical industry for the boxes that are employed to pack the medicines, and the reverse of newspaper are bought mainly by companies similar to Kellogg’s to make the boxes where the cereals are packed in.
Mr. Dumoulin and the representatives of APP met in the facilities of APP in Mojokerto. The plant is located at two hours from the city of Surabaya. Lunch was served, a meeting was held and the plant was visited by the General Manager of Morichal Corp Mr. Dumoulin, Mrs Imelda Yoewono representative of APP responsible for Client Services on the Paper division for America and Oceania, and Mrs. Angelina Haurissa responsible for International Market on Paper division of APP. APP made a presentation and made a point in qualifying APP as a private Company that has the most paper mills in Indonesia and the world.
APP was founded in1972 by Mr.Eka Tjipta Widjaja, he was also the founder of the Sinar Mas Group. The main headquarters opened the production plant Tjiwi Kimia in Indonesia. The factory that started as a caustic soda plant, today has several modern paper conversion machines that makes this world wide factory, one that has the most of its paper products under the same roof. This factory has dimensions equivalent to a soccer field. It has Swiss and German ABB machines that are tremendously big, and are at its maximum capacity of bond paper production. In June of 2012, APP published it´s Sustainable Life Sheet for 2020 and the coming years. APP stated that its objective is to preserve Indonesians human resources. In February of 2013 it made it official to end deforestation of natural forests and be in accordance to the new political policy of Forest Conservation.
Another very interesting fact is that Tjiwi Kimia in1990 for the first time became part of the stock market of Yakarta and Surabaya.
We are pleased to announce that this strategic alliance between APP and Morichal Corp is of great importance to Morichal Corp and it allows Morichal Corp the possibility to offer paper products to Latin America at very low prices.
