At the end of 2021, PT DAHANA (Persero) won the Corporate Business Expansion with Factory Construction, and Very Good Financial Performance awards for the manufacturing industry category at the Indonesia Best BUMN Awards 2021 organized by the online media Warta Ekonomi on Wednesday, November 24, 2021.
President Director of PT DAHANA (Persero) Wildan Widarman said that the Covid-19 pandemic had a considerable impact on the company. However, owing to the efforts of all DAHANA personnel, the explosives company he leads can still generate profits, especially in the construction and quarry sectors.
“We are very happy for the award received by PT DAHANA (Persero). This achievement will be an encouragement for us to achieve better results in the future. We would like to thank the board of directors, commissioners and employees of Dahana who have worked hand in hand for Dahana’s advancement. May we all always be healthy, successful and continue to grow,” said Mr Widarman.
In spite of the difficult pandemic situation throughout 2020, DAHANA still managed ato record revenues of 1.6 trillion Rupiah, slightly smaller than that of the previous year which reached 1.9 trillion Rupiah. This positive financial record is attributed to the company’s ability to adapt to the circumstances.
In 2020 and 2021, apart from carrying out drilling and blasting in the general mining sector, DAHANA has also been trusted to work on various National Strategic Projects (PSN). Apart from that, DAHANA’s foreign customer, Johnex Explosives Australia, is satisfied with DAHANA’s products, and has ordered Cartridge Emulsion explosives for the fourth time with a total weight of hundreds of tons.
Meanwhile, as a company that values AKHLAK in all its activities, DAHANA also participates in various forms of innovation in developing its systems, products and services. Amidst increasingly tight competition for explosives companies, DAHANA has built various explosives factories.
DAHANA’s Energetic Material Center (EMC) has never stopped making breakthroughs in explosives products that provide more benefits to customers, such as the DAHANA Water Gel (Dawagel). It is DAHANA’s newest product, which has the ability to produce good and efficient blasting on complex rock structures to reduce consumer production costs.
