BATAMCLICK.COM: In celebration of Cladtek’s 20th anniversary, the largest cladding pipe company in Indonesia unveiled its 20th-anniversary logo under the theme: “Building A Sustainability Future 20 Years of Additive Innovation.” It signifies Cladtek’s commitment to continually contribute its best by maintaining relevance and sustainable growth to benefit today and the future of the manufacturing industry in Indonesia and globally.
The 20th anniversary of Cladtek holds special significance as, for the first time, Cladtek has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Indonesian Association of Oil and Gas Production Facility Experts (IAFMI). This collaboration is pivotal and strategic as it allows professionals in oil and gas production facilities upstream, midstream, and downstream to share ideas, knowledge, learning, and best practices within their highly specific fields collectively.
“As a company committed to sustainable growth alongside society and the nation, Cladtek, with 20 years of presence in Indonesia, hopes to receive full support from IAFMI, especially in developing the organization, human resources, and technology,” stated Iban Salda Safwan, Senior Vice President People & Culture at Cladtek Group. Iban believes that with a strong and cohesive team collaboration, both parties can realize their aspirations and hopes.
“Our collaboration with PT. Cladtek BI Metal Manufacturing is part of IAFMI’s responsibility in supporting the development of local technology and human resources expertise,” added Taufik Aditiyawarman, Chairman of IAFMI. Thus, IAFMI’s presence is expected to encourage Cladtek to enhance the use of domestic products and strengthen the role of local and domestic labor to remain at the forefront of sustainable growth in Cladtek’s future.
To strengthen the relationship between both parties, last Sunday, January 28, 2024, Cladtek and IAFMI jointly organized the “Cladtek 20th Anniversary Golf Day” at Modern Golf & Country Club, Tangerang, West Java. The golf tournament was part of the Cladtek anniversary celebrations, alongside a Futsal/Soccer Tournament involving employees and local communities scheduled throughout February 2024.
The 20th-anniversary celebration of Cladtek is planned to be held simultaneously in 3 countries: Batam, Indonesia; Dammam, Saudi Arabia; and Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. In Indonesia, the peak event will take place on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, at Swiss-Belhotel, Harbour Bay, Batam. The event will be attended by Cladtek founder Paul Montague, Group CEO Lee Wilson, energy experts, national technology representatives, business partners, local government representatives in Batam, and Cladtek employees.
