Kendal Industrial Park (KIP) is a joint venture project between PT Jababeka Tbk (KIJA) from Indonesia and Sembcorp from Singapore. Our estate was inaugurated on November 14, 2016, by Indonesian President Joko Widodo and Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. In its development, we, which are the National Strategic Project (PSN) have received enormous support from the Government of Indonesia and also Singapore. We have obtained the status of a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in 2019, and we are a pioneer of an Industrial Township that has succeeded in obtaining tax incentives which are the benefits of Special Economic Zones. To date, there are 69 Business Entities which come from 9 countries, which is Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia & Thailand. Our area has also attracted investment worth 22 Trillion Rupiah and a human resources of more than 10,000 workers.
Currently, we are celebrating our 5th anniversary. The age of 5 years is still relatively young, but we will continue to strive to be able to provide benefits, not only in terms of providing job opportunities to improve the regional economy but also being able to be beneficial to the surrounding/ community.
In order to celebrate our 5th anniversary, we held series of activities, including social activities such as Blood Donation and Donations from KIK Employees to local residents. This activity is held as a real act of caring others.
Blood Donation activities are carried out in collaboration with PMI Kendal Regency and involve Business Entities in Kendal Industrial Park. A total of 100 bags of blood have been collected from this activity.
Other social activities that we carry out are donations to residents in need around Kendal Industrial Park. The donation was given to 60 residents in 5 villages, namely Brangsong Village, Wonorejo Village, Purwokerto Village, Turunrejo Village, and Kumpulrejo Village.
For information, the Donation activity for KIP’s anniversary is not belongs to the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities that we usually do. This is also the practice of one of KIP's corporate values, which is Caring.
In addition to the two activities we mentioned earlier, we also held a Tree Planting activity with PT. KIP’s employees and the representatives of Business Entities in KIP. The purpose of the Tree Planting except increasing the green area in the Park, is also a symbol of hope that everyone in Kendal Industrial Park can grow and develop together. The trees planted are fruit trees, with the hope of producing good results in the future.
Lastly, We, on behalf of the big family of Kendal Industrial Park, ask for your blessing, hopefully, in the future, Kendal Industrial Park will be more successful, can be even more useful, be able to create more job opportunities, and improving the economy in Kendal Regency. Thank you to all who have helped us so far, may we all be given the blessing to be able to move forward together to build Kendal Regency.
