Embossindo Utama was established in 1971 as a retail shop in a dense Chinatown located in Jakarta, Indonesia by the founder Mr. Rudy Setiawan. At the beginning, PT Embossindo Utama distributed a complete range of writing and printing paper such as woodfree, art and matt paper plus carton, brief card, fancy paper, etc. Wide product selection, competitive price, excellent service and nimble management are synonymous with Embossindo Utama.
In 1973, the company decided to build a modern warehouse facility in North Jakarta to accommodate its growing logistical needs. In addition, a large number of trucking and forklift fleet were continually added to ensure efficient and timely delivery. Due to further pressing needs for inventory space, warehousing facility was later expanded twice as big in the following year. The company's relative attainment has not gone unnoticed by the suppliers. In fact, 1988 turned out to be a turning point for the company. Sinar Mas Group, major shareholder of Asian Pulp and Paper ("APP”), appointed the company to distribute their products serving domestic market at large. The appointment has further boast the company's access to a wider range of products and, in effect, secured steady supplies throughout the year. Furthermore, direct factory access allows the company to pass on the saving to its customers, hence increasing its price competitiveness.
Distributing imported fancy paper for many years, Embossindo Utama has established numerous contacts and gathered valuable experience in marketing such specialty product. Due to the growth demand for fancy paper, in 1994 the company embarked a venture beyond its core competence, trading, by launching its own fancy paper production targeting at style-and-color conscious audiences such as graphic designers and card makers. The line, named after "Elit Paper", comes with one groundbreaking mission in mind: bringing market an affordable high quality fancy papers.
