Gunung Raja Paksi: Leading Integrated Steel Manufacturer in Indonesia

With a global base across 40+ countries, Gunung Raja Paksi (GRP) is now one of Southeast Asia’s largest, privately-owned vertically integrated steel companies. It was successfully listed on the Jakarta Stock Exchange in 2019. Today, the organisation boasts an integrated steel manufacturing facility of ~3 MTPA. Its strong relationship with regional and international financial institutes and strategic partnerships across the infrastructure chain has enabled the organisation to deliver quality and on-time projects.

GRP underwent a tremendous transformation under the leadership of Kimin Tanoto. After a strategic alliance with one of the largest Chinese steel companies, Kimin’s decision to bring in a world-class management and operations team has propelled the organisation forward. Since then, not only were the management and operational capabilities improved, the organisation has also established an advantageous relationship with MCC CISDI Group, granting them access to advanced engineering and production technologies – which are all integral to the steel industry.
