There is a saying, “Think globally, act locally.” This saying means that the global strategy of a company should be considered from a global perspective, but its implementation should fit the local culture. POSCO, aiming to become a global leading steel company, also lays its base here.
‘How Do You Like POSCO?’ is a series presented here at POSCO Newsroom, introducing POSCO’s major global business sites and local employees who are living the global POSCO dream. The first story is about four local employees at PT.KRAKATAU POSCO, Indonesia.
PT.KRAKATAU POSCO is located in a small city called ‘Cilegon’ in Indonesia, about 100 km from the capital, Jakarta. Cilegon has an area of about 175㎢, which is about ⅓ of Seoul, with a population of about 500,000. The average annual temperature is 24 ~ 32 ℃. PT.KRAKATAU POSCO is the first integrated steelworks in Southeast Asia. It is a joint venture company between PT Krakatau Steel Tbk, Indonesia, and POSCO Korea and was established in 2010. With 3 million tons of crude steel production capacity per year, there are a total of 2,390 employees working here — including 2,250 local employees and 140 Korean employees.
