Rekind's experts are planned to be stationed in Japan, Thailand, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Georgia, to support TEC's global operations, especially in the work on fertilizer projects that are or will be carried out.

"This step is a new historical breakthrough that is able to touch back the memory of the past, where since its inception, Rekind has often collaborated with Toyo in supporting the development of EPC projects in the country. This is very proud and we believe that through this collaboration we can lift even higher and sharpen Rekind's ability to support the transformation of the company that we are preparing in navigating today's competition.

This also proves that Rekind's capabilities are recognized by the world," said Rekind President Director Triyani Utaminingsih (Yani), after signing the 'Master Framework Agreement between Rekind and TEC', quoting a written statement, Friday (4/8/2023).

Yani said, Rekind is an EPC company whose capabilities are still taken into account by well-known EPC companies both nationally and internationally.
