Harijanto, Chairman of Adis Dimension Footwear, the local Indonesian unit of Nike Inc, has announced the opening of a US$60 million factory to cater for a growing international market. The construction is underway and human resources recruitment is already taking place.

The new manufacturing plant will have a production capacity of 10 million pairs of the Nike brand a year.

Adis Dimension Footwear owns a factory in Tangerang (Banten, Java), which employs around 8,500 local people and currently produces 20 million pairs a year for the export market, already up from the 12 million pairs produced in the previous year. About half of the raw materials for the current factory are domestically-sourced.
