Korindo Begins Marketing Towers as Korindo Wind in North America

Indonesia-based Korindo has announced it has begun marketing utility-scale wind towers in the United States, Canada and Mexico under the name Korindo Wind.

Korindo Wind is one of the few ISO 9001:2000 certified wind tower manufacturers in the world. To date, the company has delivered 550 towers to customers developing North American wind energy projects and nearly 1,000 worldwide wind turbines.

With its plant less than a mile from the Port of Ciwandan, Indonesia, and the ability to deliver sections to the port closest to a project site, Korindo Wind is able to develop competitive pricing for customers around the globe. Jakarta-based Korindo, founded in Jakarta in 1969, launched Korindo Wind with the construction of a wind tower manufacturing facility in 2006.

“With the expected upturn in wind energy development in North America, it has become important to more firmly establish Korindo’s wind energy division here,” said Ricky Seung, president of Los Angeles-based Kousa International, exclusive agent for Korindo Wind. “Now, as the U.S. economy rebounds and more financing becomes available for wind projects, Korindo Wind is in an excellent position to form long-term partnerships with companies that develop projects or source primary components such as Korindo Wind’s high quality wind towers.”

Korindo Wind is an ISO 9001:2000 certified wind tower manufacturer. Its technologically advanced plant in Ciwandan, Indonesia, features a highly efficient linear production line and has an annual capacity of 800 towers, or the equivalent of 2 gigawatts installed. The company also provides Precision LogisticsSM, a comprehensive, risk-free logistics solution based on Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) shipping. Kousa International, Los Angeles, is the exclusive agent for Korindo Wind. For more information, go to www.korindowind.com.
