In the last few years, DAHANA launched innovative programs in business, process, product and management system innovation.

“Thank God, we are very grateful for the award given by SWA Media Group. This is one of the beautiful gifts ahead of PT DAHANA’s 57th Anniversary. I should extend my gratitude to all DAHANA people for their excellent performance, as well as to consumers who have trusted the service and DAHANA products,” said Mr Widarman.

Mr Widarman also explained that the transformation process carried out by DAHANA did not happen overnight; it was a long process. Innovation as the Company’s breath is constantly attempted by every DAHANA person in their work that allows the Company to make necessary adaptation in facing various challenges.
