For more than five decades of operation, we have upheld sustainable and future-oriented practices. In addition, we have made a significant contribution to the country’s economic development.
Initially, Korindo Group put the main focus on hardwood development, which then switched to plywood and veneer in 1979. Five years later, Korindo expanded into the newsprint sector and continued into timber plantations in 1993. Finally, there was the development of a business line in palm oil plantations in 1995.
To date, we have 16 sectors of industry, including forestry, palm oil plantations, and rubber plantations. In addition, the production of newsprint, wood, wind towers, factories, and steel structures We also manufacture special vehicles for shipping, transportation, distribution, securities, multi-finance, insurance, real estate, and rest areas.
Through this business line, Korindo Group seeks to touch aspects of the nation’s life through the products and services it produces. Business actors can partner with us by utilizing logistics, real estate, and rest area services. On the other hand, the Indonesian people can use insurance and multifinance products from the Korindo business unit.
We also export various high-value natural products, such as palm oil plantations. This step allows Korindo Group to contribute to Indonesia’s economy and development through foreign exchange donations.

Korindo for Indonesian citizens
Korindo’s activities, which include a wide range of business areas, are supported by tens of thousands of workers. We are also equipped with a foundation entity that functions to carry out social activities. This activity has absorbed 25 thousand direct workers and 20 thousand indirect workers, not including contractors.
At its inception, Korindo Group implemented the motto ‘Green Tomorrow’ as a guideline for running an environmentally friendly company. Turning 50 years old in 2019, there was a change in the motto to ‘One Step Ahead’. This step is the beginning of a change for the better.
Major changes are intended to increase value for stakeholders and build a more competitive and superior company. On the other hand, we hope that this step will provide benefits through environmentally friendly company management and the improvement of occupational safety and health in all subsidiaries of Korindo Group.
We have aspirations and a strong commitment to become an Indonesian national company. Not only to participate in Indonesia’s development but also to improve people’s welfare in a number of regions.
Therefore, Korindo Group’s business activities always combine non-corporate contributions with the commercial aspects of business. This effort is implemented through sustainable social responsibility in the midst of society in the fields of education, health, economy, environment, and infrastructure.
The Korindo Foundation is always present in Indonesia.
Korindo Group has a sense of responsibility to take part in helping people in need. This commitment is upheld by us as a company that has been part of Indonesia for more than 50 years.
People who live in areas affected by natural disasters also deserve our attention. The company has provided a number of services in recent years, including:
Donation to Flood-Affected Villages in Kobar
In 2017, the Korindo Foundation provided aid to 10 flood-affected villages in West Kotawaringin, North Arut, and Central Kalimantan. The total aid for groceries and medicines reached around IDR 100 million.
In addition, we also mobilize medical personnel and provide free health services by visiting residents’ homes directly. This was accomplished in collaboration with the West Kotawaringin Health Office.
Help for the Lombok Earthquake
In 2018, an earthquake measuring 7 on the Richter Scale (SR) hit the Lombok area, West Nusa Tenggara. At that time, Korindo Group immediately cooperated with Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) to distribute aid. Donations in the form of 58 large boxes containing logistical needs and basic materials were distributed to affected residents.
Korindo Plywood donation to Palu and Donggala
Still in 2018, Indonesia was hit by another disaster with an earthquake and tsunami that hit the Palu and Donggala areas of Central Sulawesi. Korindo Foundation distributed Rp 7 billion for plywood raw materials (plywood) through the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) Central Headquarters.
A total of 112,120 sheets of plywood were shipped using the company’s Asike Global ship. The wood was used to build temporary shelters for earthquake victims who lost their homes in Palu, Donggala, Sigi, and other areas around Central Sulawesi. As much as 45 percent of the total aid was distributed to Sigi, the area that was the most severely damaged.
Plywood is also used to make household furniture and public facilities. According to PMI data, this aid has helped at least 8,500 residents in five regions in Central Sulawesi.
Donations for the Banten Tsunami
Korindo Foundation went directly to the Banten area, which was hit by the tsunami at the end of 2018. Assistance in the form of basic necessities such as instant noodles, mineral water, school uniforms, shoes, and school bags for children was distributed to local residents. Assistance was focused on Sumberjaya Village, Sumur, and Pandeglang as villages that suffered quite severe damage.
Korindo Group also gave aid for the fire that occurred in February 2019 in the Asgon area of Mappi, Papua. The fire left about 700 residents homeless. To help with the recovery efforts, the Korindo Foundation donated Rp. 100 million in cash, which was received directly by Mappi Regent.
Donations for Sentani and Halmahera
The provision of cash aid was carried out again the following month for the Sentani area, Jayapura, which was affected by the flash floods on March 16, 2019. This disaster left 122 people dead and 5,347 homes destroyed. The handover of aid in the form of cash worth Rp. 200 million was carried out at the Jayapura Regent’s office, which became the central post for the flood disaster.
In the same year, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit Halmahera, North Maluku. Korindo Group will immediately distribute at least 256 tons of clean water to residents of the area. The aid provided was in accordance with a report from the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), which stated that clean water was the most urgent need for the victims.
Apart from that, the company also handed over help in the form of heavy equipment and building materials consisting of 1,000 sheets of plywood and 200 sheets of tarpaulin. This aid is useful in cleaning and repairing roads as well as infrastructure. Thanks to this donation, eight villages were reported to have been helped, namely Gane Dalam Village, Gane Village, Yamli Village, Sekely Village, Kurunga Village, Yomen Village, Jibubu Village, and Awis Village.
The aid mentioned above is a form of the company’s participation in helping revive the enthusiasm and hope of the people who are experiencing difficult times. Korindo Group understands that none of this is worth the pain and loss that the affected residents feel. However, we hope that this gift can lighten their burden a little.
For 50 years, KORINDO continues to show its existence consistently in growing and working. Our success is part of sustainable practices that prioritize environment-friendly and future-oriented principles.
In the midst of dynamic pace of business, we never stop to develop and create various innovations by the advancement of technology. We believe that our success achieved with the abilities and competences of employees in innovating to overcome any challenge.
