“These technologies are based on both IT technology products and printing technology. The current technology is based on digitalization. We need a more sophisticated printing machine technology. In the past, many products were done manually by workers. Now, they are replaced with machines, which can produce more efficient products,” Budiman said.

A total of IDR15 billion is allocated for factory expansion in Sidoarjo, East Java, while IDR12.5 billion is for buying new machines for the factory. The Capex would come from the company’s retained earnings and 60% of this year’s profit allocated for business expansion.

“The company does not require domestic or international loans. [The Capex] is from assets from the company’s retained earnings,” said Budiman.
