In 2012 Satake received an order for a rice milling plant from PT. Tiga Pilar Sejahtera Food, Tbk (TPS), completing a total of three lines by December 2014.

The plant is now successfully operating as the largest state-of-the-art husking and milling plant in Indonesia.
Although TPS was officially established in 1992, the company’s roots date back to 1959. They currently have business operations in three sectors: food processing, rice milling and coconut plantations and processing. Entering the rice milling sector in 2010, TPS now produces and sells many popular brand-names of rice.
Installed optical sorter
To expand their rice milling operations further, TPS planned for a new husking and milling plant in 2011 and turned their attention to selecting a capable plant manufacturer. After visiting Satake Manufacturing (Suzhou) Co, Ltd. and inspecting rice milling plants manufactured by Satake in China, TPS were pleased with what they had seen.

TPS also evaluated Satake’s latest ‘high total engineering systems’. Additionally, TPS required long-term training and support in rice milling and processing technologies. So in April 2012 Satake receivied an official order for a 15 tonne/hour (t/h) husking and milling plant (A line); operations started in April 2014.

Subsequently, in line with TPS’ continuous business development plan, Satake received a further order for a 12 t/h brown rice milling line (B line) in June 2013 and a 24 t/h brown rice milling line (C line) that November.  The B line started operation in August 2014, while the C line started operation in December of the same year.
Capital Jakarta and Sragen
This rice milling plant is now the largest in Indonesia and able to manufacture both high yield and high quality milled rice, thanks to Satake’s state-of-the-art technologies, particularly the use of optical sorters.

TPS plans to achieve a 5 percent share of the milled rice production volume in Indonesia by 2020 and is developing plans to construct a further rice milling plant. TPS also intends to stabilise and enhance the lives of local farmers who supply material (paddy) to the plants due to their business expansion. Satake intends to continue to support TPS’ business by supplying plants and training in rice milling and processing technology.
