Daimler Group Indonesia expands its organization by introducing a new business entity, PT Daimler Commercial Vehicle Manufacturing Indonesia (DCVMI), as a result of the implementation of the new group structure, PROJECT FUTURE, by the German Daimler AG on a global scale.
The newest establishment will be primarily focusing on the production and assembly of Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles for the Indonesian market, while PT Daimler Commercial Vehicles Indonesia (DCVI) will be serving as the sole sales agent for the distribution of Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles. DCVMI will be expected to carry on the success that has been achieved by DCVI through the factory in Wanaherang, West Java, such as the launching of the Axor type Mercedes-Benz heavy-duty truck back in 2017, which added to the range of commercial vehicle models that are assembled locally by Daimler. Additionally, improvements such as the brake test, speedometer test, and shower test have been added to the assembly and testing facilities of the Wanaherang plant. These new additions will serve as tighter quality control of each Mercedes-Benz vehicle in ensuring its safety.
Daimler AG spent two years intensively preparing for the implementation of PROJECT FUTURE for the purpose of dividing its various businesses around the world into separate divisions. The group structure was finally launched in 2018 with the intention to begin a structural transformation that will prove to be visionary, with three independent entities under the Daimler AG umbrella: Mercedes-Benz AG (responsible for Mercedes-Benz passenger vehicles and vans), Daimler Truck AG (responsible for seven global brands of Trucks and Buses), and Daimler Mobility AG (responsible for mobility services and financial services).
Tim Grieger, Head of DCVMI, hopes that the presence of the new entity will encourage the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle division in Indonesia to be more focused and competitive in accordance with the functions and goals of each entity. “The structural change in this organization is part of our commitment to the market in Indonesia, with the hope of bringing success to future mobility with our sustainable business strategy in Indonesia.”
