Nissan celebrates opening of second plant in Indonesia | The Manufacturer

Nissan this week opened its second new manufacturing facility in Purwakarta, Indonesia and launched its second all electric vehicle in Barcelona, both important milestones in the company’s six year mid-term business plan, Nissan Power 88.

The 60,000m2 Indonesian facility includes body assembly, paint, trim and chassis operations and takes the total investment in new facilities in the region to £191m. With the expansion, Nissan has increased its production capability in Indonesia from 100,000 units per year to 250,000 at full capacity. The new plant will generate up to an additional 3,000 jobs in the region.

The company said initial production will be dedicated to assembling Datsun vehicles for customers in Indonesia.

At the ceremony, Nissan Motor Chief Competitive Officer (CCO) Hiroto Saikawa highlighted the importance of Indonesia and quality leadership. “By investing in a second plant in Indonesia and leveraging the global manufacturing capabilities of the Nissan Production Way, we are now able to further satisfy the increasing demand of Indonesian customers,” Saikawa said. “I have absolute confidence that the vehicles produced here will be world-class in terms of quality and that we will continue to deliver exciting products to our valued Indonesian customers.”

Nissan also confirmed the approval of their Low Cost Green Car (LCGC) program license. With this approval, Nissan will enter the LCGC segment which is expected to be the growth engine for motorisation in Indonesia.
