Bayer HealthCare Cimanggis Plant
The Bayer HealthCare Cimanggis plant, located at Jalan Raya Bogor Km. 32, Cimanggis, Depok, West Java, began operating in 1974 or two years after construction commenced. This plant is one of five manufacturing facilities spread throughout the world that Bayer acquired when it took over Roche’s over-the-counter (OTC) business globally in January 2005.
Our Cimanggis plant stands on 102 thousand square metres of land and currently less than one fifth, or over 18 thousand is being used for manufacturing related facilities. This gives the plant excellent potential for additional manufacturing facilities that can serve demands globally.
Bayer sees Indonesia as both a key market in the region and a strategic location for manufacturing several of our global brands and pharmaceutical products. In the last few years, Bayer has invested over EUR 31,6 million into the facility and starting 2015, Bayer plans to invest an additional EUR 14,6 million ongoing investment for Pharma and capacity increase for Consumer Care, which will enable the plant to manufacture Pharmaceutical on top of the Consumer Care products that are already being produced there.
As a major part of Bayer’s network of global manufacturing facilities, Our Cimanggis plant is currently exporting 70% of its products to 20 countries, some of which have the most stringent pharmaceutical regulations. We are highly confident that with our world class Indonesian professional work force, state of the art manufacturing facility and Bayer’s science, we will more than double the number of destination countries within the next couple of years.
Our Cimanggis plant currently exports to:
Uni Emirat Arab
Major Consumer Care brands that we export from Cimanggis include:
Berocca Redoxon Saridon Elevit
Supradyn Aspirin CDR
The performance of the Bayer team in Cimanggis is greatly acknowledged for their innovations, efficiency and safety as it has received a number of recognitions, such as Safe Production Award and Cost Competitiveness from the Global Product Supply Committee in Madrid, Spain and Zero Accident Award from the Indonesian government.
Just last year, the Cimanggis plant received an award for The Best Company for Women from the provincial government of West Java. This award is a recognition of Bayer’s values for diversity and inclusion, which includes supporting and encouraging women to take strategic and essential part of our business activities.
