28/07/2016: From grain logistics to aqua feeds at PT Bühler Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia

IndoLivestock 2016 is important as we are assimilated with large scale projects here,” explains Damien Shapelier who has been PT Bühler’s general manager for six months, “but that’s not only the case anymore.”

He says his company is now focused on the sale of dies for pellet mills and spare-part refurbishment as well as servicing customers through a local Indonesia workshop located in Surabaya.

“We have a service technician, which is part of the sales package for single equipment. Customers are buying equipment, such as cleaners, hammer mills, pellet mills and so on which are important to us.”

He says refurbishments include work to increases existing mill capacities as well as large-scale, silos and new feedmills.

“That’s our target at this fair.”

In Indonesia Bühler is strong in grain milling and grain logistics as there is a lot of new infrastructure in the country.

“We are focused not only on feed and new facilities but in grain logistics and together with our colleagues and partners from Symaga Silos in Spain in grain storage.

“We also service chocolate and cocoa production as Indonesia is one of the largest cocoa growers in the world and we have other divisions providing equipment for these industries such as die casting, grinding and dispersion, pigments, optics and glass coating as well as packaging to Indonesia.

This is the first time the company displayed grain storage and processing the local production of grain drying for both large and small projects.

Windy Lim, Bühler’s regional marketing manager for South East Asia and the Pacific, says the focus of the stand at IndoLivestock 2016, “is to further strengthen our participation in Indonesia and show our customers our commitment to aquafeed as well.

“We are working together with industry partners not just in poultry but also in aquaculture.”

Both Damien and Windy agree that the demand for aqua feeds in the next few years will grow and that it is a trend that will continue.
