You might read in the press, that the paper and forest-products industry is disappearing fast in the wake of digitization. In fact, the paper and forest-products industry as a whole is growing. Despite the competition from electronic devices, the success of pulp and paper industry comes on the back of ever-increasing global demand for paper.

In Indonesia, the industry also plays a major role especially for the economy. Pulp and paper products are among the national industries that have strong competitiveness in the global market.

April Group is a leading producer of fibre, pulp and paper with plantations and manufacturing operations in Riau Province, Indonesia. Their pulp and paper mill located at Pangkalan Kerinci in Riau Province Indonesia is capable of producing up to 2.8 million tons of pulp and 1.15 million tons of paper per year*.

Last year, Asia Pacific Resources International Limited (APRIL) Group launched its APRIL2030 commitments and targets to guide the development of the company’s operations over the coming decade. To support achieving the targets, PT JJ-LAPP Cable Indonesia (JJLI) is proud to support PT Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper (RAPP), the operating arm of APRIL in Riau, providing instrument cables which are to be used on the project. 

With the total length more than 750 Km, the cables for the above projects will be installed at Kerinci, Riau, to supporting their plan to install new 1 million tons per annum fiber line, FL3B project along with Board Machine BM1/BCTMP projects.
