History about Korindo Group, Good Corporate in Indonesia

We consistently maintained sustainable and forward-looking methods for more than 50 years of business. Additionally, we have significantly aided in the economic growth of the nation.

We currently operate in 16 different business sectors, such as forestry and rubber plantations. The manufacture of pulp, wood, wind turbines, industries, and steel constructions are more examples. Additionally, we produce specialized vehicles for distribution, stocks, multi-finance, insurance, property investment, and leisure fields.

Donations to Kobar Villages Affected by Floods
10 flood-affected villages in West Kotawaringin, North Arut, and Central Kalimantan received aid from Korindo in 2017. The overall amount of food and pharmaceutical assistance was close to IDR 100 million.

Donation of plywood to Palu and Donggala
Another calamity struck Indonesia in 2018 when a tsunami and earthquake both struck the Central Sulawesi regions of Palu and Donggala. Through the PMI Headquarters, Korindo distributed Rp 7 billion for plywood raw materials (plywood).

Donations for The Tsunami in Banten
The Banten region, which was affected by the tsunami at the end of 2018, was Korindo’s immediate destination. Locals received assistance in the form of basic essentials including instant noodles, mineral water, school supplies like shoes and backpacks for kids as well as school uniforms. Sumberjaya Community, Sumur, and Pandeglang, a village that sustained significant damage, were the main targets of assistance.
