As a member of the RGE Group, founded by Sukanto Tanoto in 1973, APR produces biodegradable viscose rayon used in textile products.
“The ITMF membership is extremely delighted to welcome Asia Pacific Rayon (APR), another important fibre producer. A forum like ITFM offers all stakeholders of the textile value chain the opportunity to come together and discuss the global challenges and opportunities. In today’s world an isolated view of the direct supply and demand structure might not be enough to identify trends further upstream and/or downstream. Topics like circularity or social compliance are becoming more relevant and are affecting the entire textile supply chain. We are convinced that Asia Pacific Rayon’s membership with ITMF will be mutually beneficial,” Christian Schindler, director general of ITMF, said.
Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) is the first fully integrated viscose rayon producer in Asia, with the ability to oversee the entire process from plantation to viscose fibre.
This level of integration can help to streamline production and ensure quality control throughout the entire process.

“Joining ITMF is having the opportunity to meet and share updates, knowledge and practices with industry experts and players from the entire value chain are vital for world-class companies like APR. The pandemic has revealed how relevant personal meetings are in our industry. Aside from that, I expect that ITMF will provide valuable and accurate statistics, reports and studies as well as virtual services that help to remain informed and better understand short, medium and long-term changes,” Basrie Kamba, president director of Asia Pacific Rayon, said.
