Business Description

United Tractors’ business can be divided into three main segments: construction machinery, mining contracting and mining.

Construction machinery is the company’s core business. UNTR acts as the sole distributor of heavy equipment and spare parts for Komatsu, UD Trucks, Scania, Bomag and Tadano, which all produce construction, mining, military and industrial equipment. The company is the largest distributor of heavy equipment in Indonesia, and Komatsu has the largest domestic market share there.

The mining contracting business, the biggest revenue contributor, is conducted through subsidiary PT Pamapersada Nusantara. The unit carries out mine design, exploration, extracting, hauling and transportation. It helps mine owners from the first step of mine design to expansion and marketing activities.

Mining is conducted through subsidiary PT Tuah Turangga Agung. The subsidiary holds many coal mine concessions with total reserves of around 400 megatons (one megaton = one million metric tons). The company’s coal mines offer both average and high grades of coal.

Because a large share of the company’s revenues come from the coal sector, that sector’s health has an inordinate bearing the on the company’s overall success.
