Uni-Charm becomes local household name  
Uni-Charm’s Mamy Poko Pants are Indonesia’s No. 1 disposable diapers in its category.
One of the world’s largest and most-populated countries, Indonesia has provided foreign investors over the years with several opportunities in basic industries such as natural resources and automotive manufacturing. But as the economy prospers and purchasing power grows, foreignbrand consumer goods have rapidly found their way into households across the country.

Fuji Staff Group Indonesia was set up in 1998 as a one-stop consultancy firm to provide Japanese companies with all the tools, knowledge and services needed to achieve longterm success in this growing market.

One Japanese company that has enjoyed remarkable success in Indonesia is Uni-Charm, a pioneer and leader in baby-care, femininecare and health-care products with more than 6,000 employees around the world. In Indonesia, its baby-care and feminine-care products lead the market.

"Our operations in Indonesia have had the most growth within the Uni-Charm group for the last three years in Asia," said Uni-Charm Indonesia President Director Yoshihiro Miyabayashi.

At a time when most companies report flat growth or post single-digit growth at best due to the global economic crisis, Uni-Charm has grown more than 300 percent from 2006 to 2008. Last year, it grew 149 percent.

"The success we’ve had in the local market is a result of the quality of our reasonably priced products as well as our marketing activities. Our baby-care products have been No. 1 since 2003 while our feminine-care products have been No. 1 since 2007," says Miyabayashi.

Mamy Poko Pants are pantstype disposable diapers and have gained an increasing share over tape-type disposable diapers. As of June 2009, the diapers had a market share of 43.8 percent.

Active in numerous CSR activities, the company’s progress has reflected Indonesia’s growth. Recently, it began construction of a second factory due for completion in May 2011. The 12-hectare factory will be a manufacturing base, with output expected to reach about $400 million by 2015.

"We are committed to Indonesian society through the products we offer our customers. We are grateful for the success we’ve been able to achieve so far and we promise that we will continuously provide Indonesians with the best products for their personal use and comfort," he says.
