The company said on 11 October that it has already commenced construction of the factory, which will expand its capability to meet the requirements of the Indonesian military and export customers.
The president of PT Pindad Abraham Mose said the IDR400 billion (USD30 million) investment required to build the facility was sourced directly from the government. He added that the factory will enable PT Pindad to expand its production of small-calibre munitions by up to 66% once it is fully operational in late 2018 or early 2019.
