PT Asia Pacific Fibers (APF) Kaliwungu will expand to form a textile factory area (textile park) in the near future. With that, the company engaged in the textile (yarn) sector will need a workforce of 300-1,000 people to increase the amount of production. This was conveyed by the President Director of PT APF Kaliwungu, Ravi Shankar, Wednesday (12/1/2022). Ravi Shankar said this expansion was carried out to enlarge and expand production, considering that the company's competition in other countries is quite high. His party also needs support from the Kendal Regency Government, especially in preparing manpower and permits for expansion land.
"Currently there are 2,500 workers, later we will need hundreds more, it could be much more. We need support from the regional government so that this expansion can be carried out quickly," he said.
Kendal Regent, Dico M Ganinduto paid a visit to PT APF in order to see firsthand the textile production process in Kendal.
His party will fully support the companies in Kendal Regency as a form of commitment to advancing the industry.
He hopes that this expansion will be able to absorb workers and help improve the economy of the Kendal community, Central Java.
"If there are companies that experience problems and need assistance, then we will support, including the expansion of PT APF so that it can run quickly," he said. (Sam).
