PT SANGGAR SARANA BAJA, which is known in the market as SSB, was established in Jakarta on March 19, 1977, with a vision to become preferred Engineering Solutions Company. We have maintained our position as one of the leading suppliers of fabricated steel products, delivering world-class products and service to domestic and international customers.
In the early days, SSB was focused on manufacturing attachment for heavy equipment related to CAT products - for Trakindo. This activity continues today, though much of that work now is performed at mining sites. Diversification of our activities started in 1983, when opportunities were pursued in supporting the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, and Power Generation industries.
In 2001, we expanded SSB by establishing the National Remanufacturing Center (REMAN) division to re-manufacture heavy equipment components such as hydraulic cylinders and power trains for off-highway trucks. Another expansion occurred in late 2002, when we acquired the key assets of PT Porter Rekayasa Utama, a transportation equipment manufacturing company known as PRU. PRU was a joint venture between the long established Howard Porter Group from Western Australia and local Indonesian partners, and had been manufacturing in Indonesia since 1992.
