Ammdes Production One Step More

JAKARTA – The Ministry of Industry is pushing for the acceleration of the production of rural multipurpose mechanical devices (Ammdes) by issuing company codes and vehicle identification numbers (NIK) at the beginning of this month.

Harjanto, Director General of the Metal, Machinery, Transportation and Electronics Industry Ministry of Industry, said the acceleration was a form of government support for the development of the nation’s work in an effort to realize the independence of national industries in the automotive sector.

“As our commitment before President Joko Widodo at the launching of AMMDes at the opening of GIIAS 2018 in Jakarta, AMMDes is targeted to be mass produced early 2019,” he said, Monday (1/28).

Harjanto said, PT Kiat Mahesa Wintor Indonesia (KMWI) as one of Ammdes producers was calling for preparation for the mass production of the multipurpose tool. Several things have been done by KMWI, both technically and administratively.

For example, in addition to obtaining an NIK and company code, KMWI has registered the trademark at the Ministry of Law and Human Rights and prepared to obtain a type test certificate (SUT) at the Ministry of Transportation. “One of the requirements for motor vehicle industry companies to be able to produce, is required to have a Company Code and NIK, including Ammdes,” said Harjanto.

Separately, KMWI Director Reiza Treistanto said that his party focused on the preparation of Ammdes production this year.

“After transferring production sites from Cikarang to Citeureup, we continue to complete the production facilities,” he explained.

Not only preparing production equipment, KMWI is also providing testing equipment and other office facilities. KMWI is also determined to be able to produce products that are competitive in the domestic and export markets. KMWI has submitted a type test application at the Ministry of Transportation.

It is expected that before the end of January 2019, SUT can be issued for later registration of production types at the Ministry of Industry so that the target of launching Ammdes mass production in February 2019 can be achieved. (Annisa S. Rini)
