Holcim is a pioneer and an innovator in Indonesia's fast-developing cement sector, as the market for homes, commercial buildings and infrastructure expands. We are the only provider of a fully integrated range of 10 cement types, concrete and aggregates. We are building a unique franchise, Solusi Rumah, to deliver complete, affordable housing solutions and upgrades, drawing on the skills of over 11,500 Holcim-trained masons, 399 franchisees as of mid-2011 and a growing telesales presence.
Our products are sold in more than 15,000 retail stores across Indonesia. Holcim Beton was first to market with SpeedCrete®, a fast-setting concrete that slashes time on repair work to roads and developments, while our MiniMix phone service allows same-day ready-mixed concrete delivery; we were also first with mobile concrete batching plants.
In 2011, our Cilacap Cement Plant was one of only a few businesses in Indonesia to receive a “Gold” PROPER rating from the Ministry of Environment, the highest award in Indonesia for environmental and waste management and the second time the plant has achieved this result. Our Narogong Plant holds a Green PROPER Rating.
The same year, we have attained first place in the Green Industry Awards for the second year, and the Golden Flag occupational health and safety award for the third time consecutively. We are also the only business to receive an Ozone Award recognising our ongoing work to safely dispose of ozone depleting substances.
For community relations, Holcim programmes were recognised by corporate social responsibility awards from non-profit Dompet Dhuafa Foundation and local governments.
