What started off as a small workshop with two minibus productions turns up to a
whole new story.
Adi Putro's research and development team constantly develops new mechanisms to leverage their product quality. Adi Putro's R&D team and engineers periodically study in Germany to update themselves with new technologies. Adi Putro's bus division proved themselves when they fabricated APRON, the first monocoque bus in Indonesia with a strong body frame.
OF ADI PUTRO
Adi Putro never classifies their product standards into levels or classes. Instead there is only one type of standard in Adi Putro's product lines, famously known as 'Adi Putro's quality'. One of the methods used to consistently keep their preeminent quality is by doing test-drive in Sumatra, known as the most challenging route in Indonesia. Only if a bus or product passes all the required qualifications, it is then announced ready for productions.
Adi Putro is the first carrosserie company in Indonesia who develop the design frame for air suspension in their bus productions. The frame created by Adi Putro is known to be very comfortable for the passengers. Adi Putro also has the commitment to always have the latest technology of machineries in their factory.
Today, Adi Putro has reached something that was considered unthinkable back in 1973. It is not well known that these brothers initiated this substantial carrosserie business while they were working at an automotive dealership. The brothers saw the opportunity when high demand for passenger transportation rose in the market at the time. They decided to modify pick-up cars into passenger transportation vehicles. Their initial success toward the market demand motivated them to use all the resources available and started a small carrosserie workshop in 1973. Through this small workshop they started producing more mini buses for two years.
In 1975, the official Adi Putro carrosserie was established in Malang, where it is still operating until today. From the beginning Adi Putro acknowledged the importance of keeping a high quality standard for their customers. Therefore Adi Putro kept on improving new skills in their work as well as adding new machineries.
In 1982 Adi Putro invested in machineries known to create a FULL PRESSED BODY quality in carrosserie. In 1986 they adopted the OVEN painting system.
In 1989 Adi Putro expanded the company by establishing a marketing division in Jakarta and soon after that an assembly plant in Bekasi.
In 1994, Adi Putro signed a contract with one at the biggest German carrosserie companies. This contract opened up a big opportunity for Adi Putro to reach the South East Asia automotive market. Through the same contract, Adi Putro were also able to send their skilled engineers for training in Germany. Since then, Adi Putro had been known for its top quality in carrosserie with international recognition. Adi Putro also received a lot of acknowledgements from large automotive institutions in Indonesia.
