Importer of the Year 2011

This year, the award "Importer of the Year" goes to the company JSW PT Jeeswe Mitraniaga in Jakarta, Indonesia. Since 2005, JSW has been the exclusive importer of SATA products in Indonesia. The outstanding support which the 40 team members provide to dealers, the paint industry as well as to the OEM automotive industry has made SATA the market leader in the car refinish sector in Indonesia.


The export share at SATA is more than 70 %. This success is among others due to the huge enthusiasm and the efforts of our importers abroad. Since 1998, SATA has awarded the Importer of the Year honouring outstanding performance in terms of sales, marketing and service. Mr. Uwe Kübler, Export Sales Manager for the Far East, presented the award to Mr. Jimmy Sukrisno, Manager and owner, on the occasion of a ceremony. Mr. Uwe Kübler honoured in his speech the company's successful expansion of SATA sales in Indonesia and the efforts of all JSW employees.

He also expressed his sincere thanks for the good co-operation especially in the past year when JSW represented the SATA brand at the Indo Automotive Show in May. This show is the most important trade event for the car refinish industry in Indonesia. And last but not least: The entire JSW sales and technical team participated in an intense 3-day training course at SATA. During a final tour through the factory they also had the opportunity to get a first hand insight into the high SATA standards being applied in the entire manufacturing process.

The whole team was very surprised and extremely delighted to receive this award.
