Commissioned in 2006, the assets include a 20,000 square meters purpose-built beverage production facility which includes a high speed PET bottling line and a 5,000 square meters warehouse. In addition, the 100,000 square meters land parcel acquired provides a valuable land bank for future expansion.

CCA says it expects to spend approximately US$ 46.7 million (A$ 45 million) on the acquisition of the existing San Miguel facilities and on expenditure to further develop site capacity over the next 12 months. The company plans to install an additional carbonated soft drink PET line at the facility, increasing its Indonesian PET production capacity by 20% over the next 12 months.

CCA’s Group Managing Director, Terry Davis said, “The acquisition of this large and modern facility is a very important acquisition for CCA as it fast tracks our expansion plans for the Jakarta region, providing a well located complement to our Cibitung manufacturing operations.”

Editor´s note: The facility has the potential to add a further three beverage production lines which could increase Indonesian PET capacity by a further 35-40%. This is a way of providing the business with an immediate low cost expansion option in the key densely populated West Java region of Indonesia, from which approximately 40% of CCA’s Indonesian revenue is derived.
