"Later we will build it in our plant location in Cibitung, Cikarang," he briefed the press yesterday.
The fund for new machinery purchase will be generated from US$70 million loans with local and overseas bank syndication.
The syndicated credit facility with 5 years tenure is managed by HSBC Ltd and United Overseas Bank Limited (UOB), assisted by PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia Tbk and Bank Mandiri of Singapore based.
