Always one to capitalise on a good opportunity, Pinehill Pacific widened its scope and ventured into Indonesia, becoming the first Malaysian company to invest in Kabupaten Sintang, West Kalimantan, Indonesia, via the acquisition stake in Pinehill Ventures.
Pinehill Ventures is the holding company of the Indonesian Companies, which obtained the permit to plant oil palm on approximately 20,665 hectares of land at District of Sintang, West Kalimantan, Indonesia. This 20,665 hectares is divided into 4 oil palm estates; PT Inma Jaya Group, PT Inma Makmur Lestari, PT Indomal Sawit Jaya and PT Makmur Jaya Malindo. The Indonesian properties are situated in the north western section of Kalimantan at close proximity to the Malaysia – Indonesian borders. It is about 170 km from Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.
Presently, FFB crops harvested are sold to a mill in the vicinity. In few years, when hectarage planted and FFB crop production increases, the PT Company expects to operate its own palm oil mill to process crude palm oil. This new mill will incorporate all the latest standards and design innovations. Thus, reduce the operating cost and most importantly, helps to enhance environmental quality and pollution free.
Throughout the years, we have managed to construct roads and the development is still in progress. Todate the 4 PT’s is connected internally after the construction of the Peturau Bridge. With this bridge, it gives great advantage to the company in facilitating travelling and in future, crop delivery from one estate to another.
A border crossing between Malaysia and Indonesia opened in October 2012 with CIQ facilities (Customs, Immigration and Quarantine) is located at Lubok Antu, Sarawak and Badau-Putussibau, Kalimantan Barat (click to view photos). With this border crossing, it can facilitate travelling to our property PT Makmur Jaya Malindo which is approximately 100km. Hence, giving us another additional point of entry to our estate apart from Tebedu (Sarawak) / Entikong (Indonesia) (click to view map).
