The dispensing system for high-end paints of IM GROUP will allow Mowilex to reach its sustainability goals.

PT Teko Tinting and Engineering, the research and development and tinting solutions branch of IM GROUP based in Southeast Asia, has announced that it has completed the installation of an Inkmaker dispensing system for high-end paints at the production plant of the Indonesian company Mowilex in Serang.

The Inkmaker Easypaint 10v + 24v water-based dispensing system – designed for interior and exterior decorative paints, including roof paints, water proofing, and wood staining – is powered by Inkmaker's IMAESTRO software, which connects virtually to modern ERP systems.

The installation of the system is the result of a tripartite cooperation involving Inkmaker Turin, Inkmaker Shanghai and PT Teko Tinting and Engineering.

“The installation was particularly challenging for our team. Deliveries were delayed and, due to lockdowns in Shanghai being at the peak of the Omicron variant, this limited the speed of our operations in Serang. Thankfully, being part of IM GROUP, we were able to tap into its collective knowledge and resources to best optimise our activities and minimise delays,” has explained Michael Setiadi, director of PT Teko Tinting and Engineering.

PT Mowilex Indonesia is a manufacturer of premium paints and coatings with over a thousand employees who make products distributed in more than 8,000 stores across the archipelago.

“The Easypaint’s production speed, formula-dosing accuracy and detailed work-order traceability is impressive. The customised version, which Teko installed at our Cikande factory, is expected handle up to 70 tons per month, with 21 days of operation per month, translating into 3,3 tons per day,” has stated Safavi, CEO of PT Mowilex Indonesia.

Mowilex, which has dedicated half of its new 6-plus-hectare factory at Cikande to a green area, was looking for a system that could allow the company to achieve its sustainability goals.

“Due to the high-precision dosing of the Inkmaker Easypaint we no longer require unnecessary extra stock, and can therefore eliminate unnecessary waste as well as having a cleaner production site,” has added Safavi.

“Mowilex is one of Indonesia’s most prominent paints and coatings brands, we are very proud that our Easypaint was able to meet its stringent requirements and that—with the combined expertise of Teko and Inkmaker—it is functioning beyond its expectations. We greatly look forward to future collaborations with the team at Mowilex,” has concluded Roberto Guerra, CEO for the Asia-Pacific region of IM GROUP.
