Hitachi Automotive Systems Ltd and Hitachi Automotive Systems Asia Ltd held a ground-breaking ceremony for a new plant for PT Hitachi Automotive Systems Indonesia, which was established in November 2014 in the Republic of Indonesia.

Hitachi Automotive Systems group is continuing to move forward with the global expansion of its automotive components and systems business. The company is engaged in the development, manufacture, sales and services of automotive components, transportation related components, industrial machines and systems, and offers a wide range of automotive systems including engine management systems, electric power train systems, drive control systems and car information systems.

Hitachi Automotive Systems has been accelerating its business strategy of local production for local consumption to provide its worldwide customers with a prompt response to their needs. As part of that strategy, the company had been considering establishing a manufacturing base in Indonesia, which has the largest automobile market in Southeast Asia.

As the fourth largest population in the world, Indonesia is a prime spot for further expansion of the automobile market. As of end of 2014, sales two-wheel and four-wheel vehicles recorded 7.86 and 1.21 million units, respectively. For automotive manufacturers, this has become an increasingly important strategic region. In order to further strengthen its local support to automotive manufacturers, Hitachi Automotive Systems decided to build the new plant in Indonesia.
