Suzuki Motor Corp. held the opening ceremony of a new automobile assembly plant located in the Greenland International Industrial Center (GIIC) in Bekasi Regency, east of Jakarta, Indonesia, on 29 May.
The Cikarang plant, which started assembling engines and transmissions in February 2014, now has the capability to completely produce a vehicle from engine and transmission production to vehicle assembly.
The assembly of the multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) Ertiga will be transferred from the Tambun plant, also located in Bekasi Regency, to the Cikarang plant. By combining the Cikarang and Tambun plants, Suzuki’s total production of automobiles in Indonesia will reach approximately 250,000 units per year.
Suzuki plans to gradually increase the plant’s capacity, depending on market demand.
