Our Legacy

We, at Asia Pacific Fibers, started spinning tales of progress along with our partners and customers more than 3 decades ago. It is this experience of collaborating with our customers and creating solutions, that helps us to face the future with confidence in our abilities and in our relationships.

In 1984 ...

We started as Polysindo Eka Perkasa as a manufacturer and marketer of polyester chips, fibers and filament yarns. After the seminal step of setting up a filament yarn manufacturing plant at Semarang in Central Java, Indonesia, we focused on continuous improvements in infrastructure to increase productivity. Concomitantly, we expanded our portfolio significantly leading to high and growing demand for our products in Indonesian and International markets. In the 1990's, we initiated upstream plant expansions by setting up a PTA manufacturing plant and a polyester fiber manufacturing plant at Karawang in West Java, Indonesia.

By 1997 ...

We were firmly established as Indonesia's leading polyester manufacturer. Since then, we have added capacities, applied technologies, innovated processes and products and have serviced markets across the globe. Today our polyester manufacturing facilities have a capacity of producing 330,000 MT per year, thereby making us one of the largest, polyester producer in Indonesia. Yet, meaningful and continual change has been our DNA.

On 2nd December 2009 ...

We evolved from being PT Polysindo Eka Perkasa Tbk to becoming PT Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk, reflecting the increasing global market reach of the company combined with a strong recovery of market share and corporate performance in recent years despite complex market conditions. Using our legacy as a foundation, we at Asia Pacific Fibers, will continue to strive for excellence in all our pursuits confidently into the future. Our legacy has been made possible due to innumerable valuable relationships. Our future would similarly be built through fusion of our core capabilities and these cherished market relationships.
