“The M&M team in Indonesia is well-versed in both local and global markets with a large customer base. Since its inception in 2005, the team has consistently reported positive growth and results,” says Andreas Löwenstein, Regional Managing Director Asia / Far East at Militzer & Münch. “By integrating this team, which is firmly anchored in the dynamic Indonesian market, we expect significant positive effects for the Militzer & Münch Group.”
