Message from the President

Shuichi Toriumi

PT. Yokohama Industrial Products Manufacturing Indonesia (YI-ID) is a company that was established on the Indonesian island of Batam in February 2014 as an oversea manufacturing base with excellent cost competitiveness with the aim of expanding our market share in marine products against a background of high quality and brand strength. Batam is a mere 20 km from Singapore, which is the largest hub port in Asia, and has excellent convenience from the aspect of international logistics.

We started building a factory there in 2014 and then commenced the manufacture and sale of STS hoses and pneumatic fenders from 2016. From 2017, we also commenced the manufacture and sale of marine hoses.
In 2016, we obtained ISO 9001, and in April 2017, we also obtained ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. in 2018, we completed our update to ISO 9001:2015.
And in June 2021, we received API Specification Q1 9th Edition (API Spec Q1) certification, a quality standard issued by the American Petroleum Institute.

We operate safety, environmental, and quality management systems to promote continuous improvement activities.
We are also promoting activities with the aim of becoming a company trusted by our customers, employees, and everyone in the local community.

Organizational Governance

Organization and System Reviews

Plant wide Meeting 2021

We run a compliance committee comprising representatives of the HR section chief and worksites with the company president as its chair.
Every month, we check requests from employees and compliance-related queries and information by e-mail, request forms, or directly, and then make improvements.
At the company-wide meeting every month, we teach compliance (corporate action regulations, internal reports, and harassment, etc.) to our employees.

Due to the COVID-19 event, the meeting will be held in an outdoor space. The union was established in 2018 (FSPMI: Federation of Trade Unions of the Metal Industry of Indonesia), but it was dissolved in October 2009, partly due to stagnation of activities caused by COVID-19.
We have received approval from the Labor Department and established BiPartit (Labor-Management Council: an internal organization), which meets once a month or whenever necessary to discuss labor-management issues.

Human Rights

BiPartit 2021

Indonesia has diverse ethnicities, each with a different culture and traditions. When the nation was founded, there was a desire to coalesce and unite everyone while respecting these plural environments and cultures.
We also respect this desire, and in employing human resources, our hiring practices do not violate any laws regarding race, gender, religion, or child labor, etc.

Labor Practices

Occupational safety and health

Basic Policy of Safety and Health

ISO 45001 Certificate

Safety and health form the basis of everything that we do, and our core ideal is to create a pleasant workplace that prevents work accidents and is healthy for both mind and body, and we are promoting safety and health activities based on ISO 45001.

Safety Training for Employees

We are continuously implementing safety and health training for employees.

Motorcycle safety workshop

(1)Traffic accident prevention

The majority of YI-ID employees commute by motorbike.
Consequently, we periodically call on outside lecturers and hold motorbike safety classes and demos using simulators, etc., to prevent accidents while commuting.
Furthermore, from 2017 as an additional countermeasure to prevent against traffic accidents and injuries, we instituted a program of monthly motorbike maintenance inspections conducted by a safety team. The inspections consist of checking roughly 10 key items that are directly related to safe riding such as the headlights, indicators, brakes, mirrors, and tire pressures, etc.

(2)D-day activities

Every other week we host D-day (Demonstration day) activities, and section chiefs and managers observe the work, find safety and quality problems, and improve the tasks and review the work procedures.

(3)Evacuation drill

Each year, based on the assumption that a fire has broken out, we conduct an evacuation drill involving all employees. We also conduct nighttime evacuation drills.

Firefighting drill

Evacuation drill

Roller mill rescue training

(4)Roller mill rescue training

Working with the plant’s roller mills is a very dangerous task.
Thus, to both increase the safety consciousness of workers and prepare for if an accident should occur, we conduct training every three months while rotating the training participants through the various roles.

(5)2S activities

2S is the mutual inspections of worksites every other week based on safety basics to improve the 2S level.

(6)Providing non-oily foods in order to maintain health

Indonesian cuisine features a great many dishes that are prepared using cooking oil. If too much of it is consumed, however, cooking oil can negatively impact a person’s health. Accordingly, we have commenced a strategy of providing lunchtime meals once a month that are free of oil. On that day at the canteen, rather than dishes prepared using oil, employees are offered alternatives whose ingredients have been boiled and/or grilled.


Meal meetings with employees

As part of our efforts to improve communication within the company, we used to hold Independence Day events, Buka Puasa, Family Day, etc. However, due to COVID-19, we were unable to hold gatherings.
In 2021, we held three separate meal meetings..

The Environment

Environmental management

Core environmental ideals

ISO 14001 Certificate

Establishing our aim of “becoming a company having world-class strengths in technologies for protecting the environment based on the rule of ‘valuing social fairness and harmony with the environment’” as the basic philosophy, we promote environmental improvement activities based on ISO 14001.

Fair Operating Practices

We created action rules in Indonesian based on Yokohama Rubber’s action rules, and distributed YI-ID compliance cards to all employees to educate them.
We also made clear the ways to consult on compliance (e-mail, phone, etc.), and people can consult the helpdesk at any time.

Consumer Issues

In 2017, we established Indonesian sales supervision and technical support to promote sales expansion in the Indonesian market.
There is local content in Indonesia, and the higher the ratio of materials sourced within Indonesia for products, the more of an advantage there is in domestic sales talks. Although it was 18% in 2017, it was 26% in 2018, 30% in 2019, and 40% in 2022. We are promoting the local sourcing of materials to further increase this ratio.
Furthermore, we are promoting quality improvement activities based on ISO9001 and API SpecQ1* .

Response to complaints

Community Involvement and Development

Relationship with local societies

Over 90% of Indonesians are said to be Muslims, and there are many events connected to Islam.

Donations to the Orphanage

(1)Buka Puasa

Muslims are thankful that they can normally eat, and so have a month of fasting to understand the feelings of people who are suffering from hunger.
During this period, they refrain from eating and drinking during the day, and as soon as the sun goes down, the family gathers, give thanks for being food secure, and pray. This event is called Buka Puasa.
During this time, our employees and orphans together hosted Buka Puasa, but due to COVID-19, we have decided to donate only to the orphans.

Hari Raya Idul Adha

(2)Hari Raya IdulAdha

Hari Raya is a celebration of the Islamic Festival of Sacrifice, and it is an event during whichall people are offered beef.In each and every household as a traditional meal a special dish of beef is prepared.
YI-ID also donates a cow.
