President Director and CEO of Samator Group
The 40th Anniversary
of the Samator Group
In 1975, Samator started its business producing acetylene. Since then, Samator has grown into a multi trillion rupiah company group with over three thousands employees. In 2004, Samator aggressively expanded its industrial gas business through the acquisition of PT Aneka Gas Industri (AGI). AGI’s business has grown more than six times over the past decade at an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20%. This significant growth was achieved through the hard work of our dedicated teams, who are committed to apply global knowledge with local content in serving our diverse customers.

At our 40th anniversary, Samator Group, with facilities of more than 50 plants and 100 filling stations, has been able to provide a complete range of industrial gas products and services to meet national demand. The Samator brand is known as the first industrial gas company in Indonesia and the player with the largest and widest distribution network across the archipelago. We have become the most reliable industrial gas supplier in Indonesia. As part of our corporate strategies, Samator Group also partners with existing global players in industrial gas, such as Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation, Tomoe Shokai Co.Ltd., and Hangzhou Hangyang Co.,Ltd. These partnerships have enabled us to tapping into cutting edge technology, meeting market demand and maintaining global standards in product quality and operational excellence.

We will continue to expand our business groups into multiple industries, including healthcare, chemical, engineering procurement and construction (EPC), automotive and real estate. Healthcare is a leading sector in our business portfolio and we are keen to continue to growing and expanding the healthcare business more significantly. Growing our business persistently, investing our profit prudently in new business ventures and managing day to day cash flow carefully are the keys to continue leading the industry.

After AGI’s second corporate bond issuance at the end of 2012, we conducted our first corporate reorganization in response to the looming economic challenges. Samator Group has also redefined its vision, mission and core values. Samator persistently strives to become the most desirable company that continuously grows and expands by utilizing natural resources for the benefit of life. This has become our official vision statement that helps us in leading the organization towards a better future.

We would like to thank our stakeholders for their loyalty and we would also like to thank our prospective clients for choosing Samator Group as their business partner. We will continually strive to meet and exceed customer needs. We would also like to thank all of our management team and staff for showing their sincerity, dedications and professionalism in serving the customers and contributing to the company’s rapid growth.

We are committed to move forward together for Indonesia.

Yours Sincerely,
Arief Harsono
President Director and Group CEO of Samator Group
