Our History

PT. Kharindo Prakarsa was originally founded by our father, Mr. Khoe Kay Siong. As you read through, you will find out that our company has experienced 4 times changes on the name of the company. This is due to moving a new location and reorganization of the company as it develops.

Sin Chiu Batik Dyestuff & Chemicals (1952 - 1965)

Mr. Khoe Kay Siong established "Sin Chiu" company with its location at
Jl. Tanah Abang Bukit No. 79, Jakarta

At that period, we were just dealing with some main products such as Reactive Dyestuff ex. ICI, Sandoz and HoechstAcid & Basic Dyestuff ex. BASF, ICI

Mega Warna (1966 - 1984)

The name of the company was changed to Mega Warna, or the color of cloud and sky. This moving to new location is due to larger office space is needed. It was entirely a private company and was a distributor of following pigment and textile chemicals.

  1. Mikuni Colours Works (Pigment textile color for printing)
  2. Shin Nakamura Chemical (Textile Chemicals)
  3. Sinloihi (Daylight fluorescent colors)
  4. Union Carbide Indonesia (Textile printing binder, textile stiffener and softener, acrylic size)

PD. Sumber Warna (1985 - 1987)

Mega Warna was changed to "P.D Sumber Warna" which means the source of the color, due to company's expansion and reorganization. This new company has the same line of business with former.

PT. Kharindo Prakarsa (1987 - Now)

We come to a decision to reorganize the company which will enable us to expand the business to more challenging market. This reorganization has encouraged us to have a head office and it's branches in Bandung and Solo.
