German Greatness Facilitates Indonesian Ingenuity   Writer:Matthew Staff Project Manager:Tom Cullum   Despite being part of one of the most prominent global industry groups, P.T. BAUER Pratama Indonesia is blazing a trail for itself across Indonesia; balancing its global resources with a considerate local emphasis to reach its target of becoming the number one company in the country. As a subsidiary of the German behemoth, BAUER Spezialtiefbau GmbH, its role across construction, manufacturing, oil & gas, and resource domains has never been in question, but since its inception in the nation in 1992, it has overcome a series of economic, logistical and industry challenges to become the most renowned and reliable operator in its field. “Leveraging the success of an organisation that has been established for 235 years, is present in 72 countries and employs more than 10,000 people; our 25-year presence in Indonesia has been a huge beneficiary of this global influence,” introduces the Company’s Asst.
