Pusri supplies 35,677 tons urea to industries
March 17 ,2015 REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, PALEMBANG -- State-owned urea manufacturer Pupuk Sriwidjaja (Pusri) in Palembang, South Sumatra, has supplied 35,677 tons urea to a number of domestic and international industries.
"We have effectively managed to meet domestic as well as international industries' demand for urea," the spokesperson for Pusri, Sulfa Ghanie, said here Monday (16/3).
He added that urea supplied by Pusri is not only used by agriculturists and plantation growers but also by industries involved in plywood and car dashboard interior manufacturing.
Urea is sold to industries only after meeting the needs of farmers in nine provinces in Pusri's market rayon, according to Farmer Group Need Definitive Plan.
The nine provinces are South Sumatra, Lampung, Jambi, Bengkulu, Bangka Belitung, Central Jawa, Banten, Jakarta, and Yogyakarta.
According to Sulfa, a national regulation stipulates that Pusri should meet the demand for subsidized urea from farmers' living in the nine provinces.
Selling urea to industries is one of the commercial marketing programs to increase the company's income.
Sales will be further expanded with the construction of a new manufacturing unit.
Pusri, which was established in 1959, currently has four manufacturing units with a total capacity of 2.262 million tons urea per year.
