First established in 1982 as the company’s primary area of expertise, the weaving division at Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills continues to stand as the cornerstone of a highly efficient textile manufacturing operation. Having experienced rapid growth characterized by an increase in the size of its workforce from 150 employees to more than 1,000, this unit presently ranks within the top 3 uniform fabric producers in Indonesia and routinely surpasses the manufacture of 2 million metres of fabric on a monthly basis.
The weaving division’s success in spurring Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills to its current industry-leading position is predicated on the use of the latest machinery, operated by human resources that receive comprehensive training on new production techniques. Cooperation with a vast network of technology partners such as Germany-based Sucker Muller, Switzerland-based Benninger and the Japan-based Tsudakoma facilitates the seamless installation of the most advanced models of air jet looms, sizing machines and warping machines, among other cutting edge equipment.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills also applies this tech-driven focus in implementing an extensive monitoring system to track client orders at all stages of the weaving production line. Through an Online Monitoring Data Log System, the company is able to provide total customer peace of mind and affirms its standing as a trusted textile manufacturer appreciated for its accountability and reliability.
The weaving division at Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills is now positioned to capitalize on a local market of immense potential for the manufacture of garments, given the presence of an increasingly well-heeled domestic consumer base and Indonesia’s increasingly dominant regional market position in this industry. In filling the vacuum to supply fabric to both local and international garment manufacturers, the company takes advantage of a highly automized and energy efficient workflow to overcome current challenges faced by its less-nimble competitors, such as rising electricity tariffs and labour costs. Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ weaving division thereby sets the tone for Indonesia’s textile manufacturers as the new industry archetype.
An unwavering commitment to evolving as a streamlined company has seen Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills achieve vertical integration by establishing its own dyeing and finishing unit. This division provides customers with the luxury of choice in selecting fabrics specifically designed to match unique colour schemes, and facilitates the company’s ability to cater to rising demand for value added fabrics equipped with specialty features. Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ dyeing and finishing division is presently able to equip fabrics with anti-stain, anti-microbial, anti-mosquito and water repellant properties in serving local businesses with particular requirements for their employee uniforms as well as in catering to the needs of developed markets abroad.
In keeping with its standing as a modern textile manufacturer, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills carries out its dyeing and finishing activities in accordance with stringent, self-imposed environmental obligations. As one of the first textile factories in Indonesia to have invested in an in-house liquid waste management system, the company recognizes the importance of eco-friendly business practices in adhering to its core corporate values of integrity and accountability, and in winning the trust of prominent clients at home and overseas. Compliance with strict standards of production within the dyeing and finishing division is ensured through cooperation with third party waste management specialists as well as through the influence of an international management team well versed in green textile manufacturing.
Going forward, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills is keen to further its capabilities in being able to offer a broader array of specialized fabric properties. Through this advanced portfolio of value added products, the company intends to expand upon its presence within developed export markets and take the next step in becoming a global textile industry leader.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ operations as a textile manufacturer are primarily focused on the production of fabrics for uniforms, having been streamlined in 2003 to enable the company to take full advantage of its expertise in this field amid rising regional competition. The company’s strategy in identifying this area of specialization and the subsequent launch of Nagatex as an in-house fabric brand has since seen it become the gold standard for uniform fabric manufacturers in Indonesia, highly regarded for its flexibility in adapting its production process to new trends and industry demand.
Drawing upon the experience of skilled human resources overseeing the use of the latest in textile manufacturing technology, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills offers an extensive range of uniform fabrics to meet diverse customer needs. The company’s current product portfolio includes:
Full Polyester Fabrics
In addition to a comprehensive selection of fabric types, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills also makes available a full spectrum of colour options and specialty finishes to cater to the specific needs of domestic as well as international garment manufacturers.
State of the art production facilities coupled with a nuanced understanding of the domestic market situates the company to form close ties with modern clothing companies as well as traditional businesses. These enduring relationships are particularly crucial within a niche industry dependent upon a strong client network, given that uniform orders are typically placed on a seasonal or annual basis. Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills, with over three decades spent building a loyal base of repeat customers, will therefore continue to prioritize reliability and quality in ensuring complete client satisfaction.
As testament to the company’s expert understanding of uniform fabrics, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills through its in-house brand Nagatex offers a selection of fabrics equipped with advantageous properties for value added performance. This fabric range befitting of a mature manufacturer comes as a direct result of a company-wide commitment to innovation and investment in R&D facilities. Among Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ current collection of specialty uniform fabrics are:
Anti-Microbial Fabric – In keeping with the continued growth of Indonesia’s healthcare and medical services sector, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills makes available an anti-microbial finish to fabrics well suited for use in uniforms for healthcare professionals. By actively inhibiting the growth of bacteria, this specialty fabric also has considerable potential for uniforms worn by those involved in manual labour as well as for activewear.
Soil Release Fabric – Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ soil release fabrics allow for the straightforward removal of stains during laundering, and are particularly popular amongst manufacturers of school uniforms worn on a daily basis and regularly exposed to dirt and dust. This fabric is equipped with a hydrophilic finish, making fibers more absorbent to better draw in detergent and water.
Mosquito Repellant Fabric – Closely attuned to the needs of businesses on the local and regional stage, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills offers a mosquito repellant finish applied to Nagatex fabrics to provide added protection from mosquito-borne diseases. In driving away mosquitos, this specialty fabric caters to the needs of agriculture businesses located in tropical countries seeking to ensure the well-being of their human resources.
Water Repellant Fabric –Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills makes available water repellant fabrics popularly used in the manufacture of apparel such as rain jackets and coats. Value added properties such as this have seen the company become the trusted supplier of fabric to agencies and organisations expecting the highest quality standards, such as the Indonesian Air Force.
Progress with regards to launching new specialty fabrics is demonstrative of Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills growth as a company in moving beyond its core strength in basic uniform fabrics. The company plans to further its capabilities within this domain going forward, thereby placing itself in a prime position to anticipate new demand from discerning markets.
PT. Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills is committed to achieve and exceed customer satisfaction by:

As a modern textile manufacturing firm, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills prioritises responsible and sustainable business practices at every stage of production. The company was among the first in its industry to install an in-house liquid waste management system, and continues to work with IPAL (Instalasi Pengolahan Limbah Industri) to ensure the seamless and safe handling of its byproducts. Through initiatives such as recycling its waste water to be reused during the manufacture of uniform fabrics, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills complies with stringent eco-friendly standards of operation and has obtained ISO 14001:2015 certification (Environmental System Management) as evidence of this fact.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills also goes above and beyond to achieve energy efficiency within its manufacturing facilities in Bandung, West Java. In line with the Indonesian government’s goal of reducing the consumption of fuel oil, the company powers its factory through the use of two boiler machines; one producing 25 tons of steam per hour and the other tapping into a chain grade continuous feeding system with a capacity of 8 million kilocalories per hour. The implementation of this machinery stands as yet another example of Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ dedication to investing in new technology providing tangible benefits to efficiency and productivity.
In keeping with its commitment to furthering the capabilities of Indonesia’s next generation of business leaders, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills on 24th April 2015 sponsored the Purpose Driven Business Seminar in Bandung. Held at the Clarity Hotel in the Cihampelas district, the event featured keynote speeches from Mr Alexander Foe, President Director of Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills, and Mr Alex F Santoso, CEO of Nirwana Group, as two entrepreneurs dedicated to ensuring that their businesses have a positive social impact. Participants of the seminar filled the Clarity Hotel’s Diamond Ballroom and were also provided with the opportunity to participate in a lively question and answer session.
Enthusiastic to lead a new wave of young entrepreneurs, Mr Foe shared his expertise on running a successful business with a focus that extends beyond generating profits and encourages widespread social well-being. In discussing this topic, Mr Foe sought to showcase the potential of purpose-driven business as a concept adopted by companies around the world with the goal of integrating a social mission as part of their corporate philosophy. The seminar first and foremost aimed to raise understanding among local entrepreneurs that by giving a worthy purpose to daily business operations, corporate leaders are able to carry out commercial activities while simultaneously making a substantial social impact.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills serves as a role model for purpose-driven business among Indonesian firms, as a company that has emphasised the importance of community engagement and corporate social responsibility within its company culture via the SALT and LIGHT principles (See Corporate Values at Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills). By embedding values such as humility, integrity, leadership, and spiritualism, the company has not only developed into a leading manufacturer of uniform fabrics but is also well-known for its skilled human resources keenly attuned to the importance of sustainable and responsible business practices.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills in late August 2015 marked the successful launch of a new scholarship programme demonstrative of the company’s support for its human resources. Through this programme, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills will cover the educational costs for the children of employees who have demonstrated high levels of academic achievement, and thereby play an important role in encouraging the attainment of knowledge and skills within the local community.
To signify the start of the new scholarship programme, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills hosted an event at its office in Bandung, West Java in which employees were provided with the scholarship funds. In total, the company disbursed 98 million IDR to 37 students currently attending school at the elementary, junior high or high school level. Presenting the scholarship funds on behalf of Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ Board of Directors were Mr Agustinus Foe as Director of Business Development and Mr Hendrik Winata as Director of Operations. As confirmed by Ms Vera Foe as Director of HR, Systems & Quality Management, the company intends to carry out this initiative on an annual basis to strengthen its standing as a business committed to contributing to social well-being and encouraging a higher quality of life through education.
Leading local textile manufacturer Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills launched its latest CSR initiative by partnering with one of Bandung’s most prominent private universities, Parahyangan Catholic University (also known as ‘Unpar’). The long-term partnership will see the company cooperate with Unpar’s Business Administration study programme to provide support to students with a passion for entrepreneurship through the creation of a course curriculum and modules that encourage creativity and innovation in developing business plans. Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills will also invite groups of students to visit its modern manufacturing facilities also located in the Bandung area.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills commenced the first of many activities set to take place through this partnership by having its President Director, Mr Alexander Foe, feature as a guest speaker during the “Business Opportunities Regarding to Internal and External Business Environment Analysis” class on 14th September 2015 at the Audio Visual Room of the faculty building. The class highlighted the different types of obstacles faced by companies in Indonesia – such as challenging macroeconomic factors – and how to adapt to a new business climate in pursuing entrepreneurial ventures.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ success in navigating Indonesia’s dynamic business environment places it in the ideal position to cooperate with Unpar’s sole business-oriented study programme. Understanding the need to hone high levels of soft and hard skills, Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills’ industry insights will shape the foundation of the entrepreneurship programme curriculum at Unpar thus helping to develop the country’s future business leaders. Moreover, the company’s recent partnership with Unpar is demonstrative of its firm support for high-quality education (See Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills Creates New Scholarship Programme) as well as its ongoing efforts to lead a new wave of social entrepreneurs (See Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills Leads a Wave of New Social Entrepreneurs).
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills on 21st April 2016 hosted its latest initiative to encourage the development of Indonesia’s next generation of leaders and innovators by welcoming students from the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) to its manufacturing facilities in Bandung, West Java. Currently enrolled in the university’s esteemed Faculty of Civil & Environmental Engineering, the students were particularly interested in visiting the company’s Waste Water Treatment System – one of the many systems put in place by Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills as part of its commitment to protecting the environment (See Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills Commended for its Efforts to Protect the Environment).
This site visit by ITB students follows on from similar recent events in which Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills sought to work closely with institutions of higher education in the Bandung area. The company in April also hosted several professors from Sekolah Tinggi Teknologi Tekstil (STTT) Bandung – an institute specifically focused on producing skilled graduates in the field of textiles – who took the opportunity to monitor the progress of their students carrying out internships at the factory.
Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills is currently already partnered with Parahyangan Catholic University (See Nagasakti Kurnia Textile Mills Partners with Parahyangan Catholic University), and has seen its directors participate in numerous workshops and conferences aimed at providing guidance and insights to Indonesia’s future entrepreneurs and business leaders. In this regard, the company is fully committed to ensuring that it has a long-term impact in driving continued economic progress in Indonesia.
