According to Pieter Tanuri, president director of Indonesian tyre maker PT Multistrada Arah Sarana Tbk, the company is aiming for a “ten to 15 per cent increase in revenue” during 2016. Multistrada intends to support this rise through higher exports and will accommodate this hoped-for increase in unit sales by boosting production capacity for both car and motorcycle tyres. “Exports are the highest sales contributors,” noted Tanuri, adding that sales in export markets account for 70 per cent of total company sales.
According to Pieter Tanuri, Indonesia’s PT Multistrada Arah Sarana aims to increase its domestic market share from 13 to 15 per cent in the next two or three years. The president director was quoted by The Jakarta Post as saying this two per cent rise would be achieved through increasing total production capacity to around 17 to 18 million tyres per annum over the next year. Currently, Multistrada produces ten million car tyres and six million motorcycle tyres.
