It provides further technical application support with a sample room, designated cool rooms for textile, food and beverage products, and two rooms to safely store hazardous and flammable products.

Built on a 10,000-sq-m plot of land in MM2100 Industrial Town in Cibitung in West Java, the new facility has a storage capacity of 5000 sq m of floor area with 6600 pallet position.
