INDOMETAL 2016 RETURNS WITH 300 EXHIBITORS

At the third edition of indometal – international metal & steel trade fair for Southeast Asia, 300 exhibitors from 30 countries will showcase a comprehensive range of machinery and products ranging from foundry technology and casting products to metallurgy and thermo process technology. indometal 2016 will feature national pavilions and groups from Italy, Indonesia, China, Taiwan and for the first time from Spain. The event will be organized by Messe Düsseldorf Asia and PT Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur (WAKENI) and take place from October 25 – 27, 2016 at the Jakarta International Expo.

As a strategic business platform for the steel, aluminum, copper, cobalt, nickel and other metal sectors in Indonesia and the region, exhibitors at indometal 2016 include ASHAPURA INTERNATIONAL, A.D.TUBI INOSSIDABILI S.P.A, DISA & WHEELBRATOR, OXFORD INSTRUMENTS, OCTO CORINDO SARANA, KAMAG TRANSPORTTECHNIK, MASCHINENFABRIK GUSTAV EIRICH, SEC ELECTRIC MACHINERY, SINOSTEEL EQUIPMENT & ENGINEERING, BEDA OXYGENTECHNIK ARMATUREN, SMS GROUP, GROWELL ABRASIVES, EXXONMOBIL LUBRICANT and SCHEUERLE FAHRZEUGFABRIK.

The high international participation at indometal 2016 is indicative of market trends in Indonesia’s foundry and casting sectors. According to the Indonesian Iron and Steel Industry Association (IISIA), the country’s stainless steel industry could grow aggressively over the next five to seven years as demand from large-scale infrastructure projects, from energy production to transportation links, is forecast to increase. Indonesia’s domestic metal-processing industry is also growing, with as many as 63 smelters to be built by 2017, including 40 nickel plants, 10 iron ore smelters and four copper-cathode smelters, according to data from the Indonesian Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry.

Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia, stated: “With every edition of indometal, we strive to align the trade fair with the latest industry developments in Indonesia and the wider Southeast Asia region, in expanding its regional footprint. Expecting to welcome over 8,000 regional trade visitors this year, we seek to grow indometal’s standing as a must-attend event for attendees to network, explore opportunities, exchange firsthand market insights and harness new growth opportunities set forward by the ASEAN Economic Community.”

Rini Sumardi, Director of WAKENI, added: “indometal is honored to receive the endorsement and validation of key industry associations and partners for another edition – which reaffirms the relevancy of the trade fair for the region’s metal, steel and related industries. For companies with medium and long-term plans of doing business in Indonesia and Southeast Asia, indometal will pave the way for valuable business opportunities and exposure, through a converging, trade-only platform. Local industry players looking to up their business and manufacturing capabilities will benefit from the global expertise and innovations presented on the show floor.”

A series of seminars, technical presentations and product demonstrations will complement the indometal 2016 exhibits. The seminar session on the first day will focus on “The Strengthening of the Metal Industry to Support the Success of Indonesia's Infrastructure Development” – jointly organized by the Indonesian Foundry Industries Association (APLINDO), the Indonesia Foundrymen’s Association (HAPLI), WAKENI and Messe Düsseldorf Asia. The second seminar led by the Federation of Indonesian Metalworks & Machinery Industries Association (GAMMA) on October 26 will address topics pertinent to the preparation of the metal manufacturing industry to support government-led programs in infrastructure and energy development. Both seminars are free for registered visitors.
