LS Cable & System started construction of the plant at the 64,000 m² (19,360 pyeong) site in the Artha Industrial Complex near Jakarta in September 2020. LSAGI will mainly produce overhead lines for power transmission and distribution and low-voltage (LV) cables for buildings and plants.

Indonesia was the largest electric cable market in ASEAN where electric power infrastructure is actively constructed and the construction business is booming. The company expects that the cable market will show a rapid recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic due to Indonesia’s relocation of the capital and the entry of Korean companies.

“In the cable industry, each country is strengthening policies to protect its own companies,” said a company official. “LS Cable & System is pursuing new businesses tailored to the local market for each overseas business site and responding with a strategy to increase independent business capabilities.”

LSAGI is a joint venture between LS Cable & System and Artha Graha Network (AG Group), Indonesia’s 10th largest company. LS Cable & System is planning to expand the market by utilizing the AG Group’s local business experience and sales networks in banks, hotels, construction/resorts, and others.
