"It is hoped that this new building can support INALUM's operations to become the leading aluminum smelter, increase production capacity and become a reference for the world aluminum market," said Deputy Minister of SOE I Pahala Nugraha Mansury in his speech representing the Minister of SOE.

"It is hoped that INALUM will be able to carry out its operations with AKHLAK (Trustworthy, Competent, Harmonious, Loyal, Adaptive and Collaborative) values to provide the best for the country and society," he said.
Apart from the AKHLAK value, INALUM also always practices key behavior, namely Agile, Going Extra Mile and Accountable as well as ProsPeKTIF values (Professional, Development, Cooperation, Responsibility, Integrity and Benefit). These values were displayed by INALUM at the event through a dance mapping that spoiled the eyes of the participants.
On this occasion several regional officials such as the Governor of North Sumatra, Pangdam I Bukit Barisan, Kapolda North Sumatra and other strategic stakeholders conveyed their hopes through a short video testimonial. Not to be left behind, the President Commissioner of INALUM, Agus Tjahajana Wirakusumah, on the same occasion, virtually expressed his hope that at the age of 45 INALUM could continue to develop.
"Four and a half decades is not an easy journey, the challenges will continue to increase, but INALUM must be able to survive the challenges of the present and the future. With this new building, it is hoped that it will become one of INALUM's milestones to move forward in the future, "hoped Agus.
Furthermore, MIND ID Group CEO, Orias Petrus Moedak, also emphasized that INALUM must be able to continue to expand its business in order to pursue the Company's vision. "Through the theme of Acceleration, Transformation and Expansion at its 45th Anniversary, we hope that in the midst of the difficult situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, even though INALUM must continue to move fast and expand its business," said Orias.
On this 45th Anniversary, INALUM has a long-term target that must be achieved by 2030. This was also expressed by INALUM's Managing Director, Oggy Achmad Kosasih in his remarks. "INALUM is very ambitious to be able to expand its wings into a large integrated aluminum-based company with an aluminum production capacity of around 1.3 million tons of aluminum per year by 2030," said Oggy.
