JFE Steel to Construct Continuous Galvanizing Line for Autos in Indonesia

Tokyo – JFE Steel Corporation announced today that it will construct Indonesia’s first continuous galvanizing line (CGL) for automobiles at MM2100 Industrial Town, an industrial estate in the city of Bekasi just outside of Jakarta. JFE Steel’s wholly owned subsidiary PT. JFE STEEL GALVANIZING INDONESIA will handle construction and operation of the facility, as well as ensuing sales of hot-dip galvanized steel.

Indonesia, Southeast Asia’s second largest automobile producer, is a production and export base for many global automakers. Local demand for high-end automotive steel sheet is expected to grow as automakers further expand capacity, including through the construction of new plants.

The new continuous galvanizing line will be JFE Steel’s third CGL for automobiles in Asia, following China and Thai, where the company already operates CGLs. JFE Steel also provides manufacturing technology for a CGL and related facilities operated by its partner JSW Steel in India.

JFE Steel is leveraging its world-class technologies to respond to growing demands from automakers in Asian markets for local procurement and increasingly sophisticated products, and to contribute to the development of steel industries in these markets.
