Sumber Alfaria Trijaya to open three distribution centers in Indonesia
Sumber Alfaria Trijaya Tbk (PT Sumber), a consumer products retailer based in Indonesia, plans to invest up to IDR420bn ($42.2m) to construct three distribution centers in 2014.
The distribution centers will be located in Bogor, Karawang (both in West Java), while the third location is still yet to decide.
Earlier in 2013, the Banten-based retailer built two new distribution centers in Sumatra, with one in Jambi and the other in Pekanbaru, Riau.
Alfamart's corporate affairs director Solihin told JakartaGlobe, "We are planning to add three distribution centers next year that will cost around Rp 138 billion to Rp 420 billion."
Set to occupy between two and four hectares, the three upcoming distribution centers will increase the company's total to 28.
Controlled by Sigmantara Alfindo, an investment company owned by Djoko Susanto, Sumber Alfaria operates more than 7000 stores.
Sumber distributes and retails fast moving consumer goods, which include sugar, rice, cooking oil, milk, personal and household care products, and cigarettes through its minimarkets.
