PT Sri Rejeki Isman Tbk (SRIL) or Sritex is arguably one of the largest textile businesses in Indonesia. Starting from Klewer Market, now it has 50,000 employees. To be in the current position, a lot of dynamics.


Sritex President Director Iwan Setiawan Lukminto recounts how grieving he faced in raising the textile business with Sritex.


Precisely for 10 years from 1998 to 2008, the textile industry was labeled as sunset industry. With this label, the textile industry is considered high risk for lending. Finally, the industry is difficult to grow.


"From 1998 to 2008 textiles were categorized as sunset industry. Stigma by Bank Indonesia because there was a big player that was not performing," said Iwan


Iwan said, the stigma attached to the 10 years, making it difficult for textile industry players to get capital because banks are reluctant to give loans. He said the condition was very difficult for industry players.


Because he did not get access to credit, Iwan said the textile industry was difficult to grow at that time. In fact, if there is no sunset industry stigma, the textile industry can grow better.


"The impact is to this industry, therefore in that year it is difficult to grow. If there is no stigma, Sritex is even bigger 5 times than what it is now," he continued.


Apart from the difficult times, Iwan said the current condition was far better than before. Especially because Indonesian textile products are far more competitive with Chinese products.



Dinamika Bisnis Tekstil di RI



PT Sri Rejeki Isman Tbk (SRIL) atau Sritex bisa dibilang sebagai salah satu bisnis tekstil terbesar di Indonesia. Berawal dari Pasar Klewer, kini sudah punya 50.000 karyawan. Untuk berada di posisi saat ini, banyak suka dukanya.


Direktur Utama Sritek Iwan Setiawan Lukminto menceritakan bagaimana suka duka yang dia hadapi dalam membesarkan bisnis tekstil bersama Sritex.


Tepatnya selama 10 tahun sejak 1998 hingga 2008, industri tekstil dilabeli sebagai sunset industri (industri senja). Dengan label tersebut, industri tekstil dianggap berisiko tinggi untuk penyaluran kredit. Akhirnya, industri tersebut sulit tumbuh.


"Suka duka, sejak tahun 1998 sampai 2008 tekstil dikategorikan sebagai sunset industry. Stigma oleh Bank Indonesia karena ada suatu pemain besar itu tidak perform," kata Iwan


Iwan mengatakan, stigma yang melekat selama 10 tahun itu, membuat pelaku industri tekstil sulit mendapat permodalan karena bank enggan memberi pinjaman. Dia mengatakan kondisi tersebut sangat menyulitkan pelaku industri.


Karena tak mendapat akses kredit, Iwan mengatakan industri tekstil kala itu sulit tumbuh. Padahal, jika tak ada stigma sunset industry maka industri tekstil bisa tumbuh lebih baik.


"Dampaknya ke industri ini, oleh karena itu  di tahun tersebut susah tumbuh. Jika tidak ada stigma itu, Sritex itu lebih besar lagi 5 kali lipat dari yang sekarang," lanjutnya.


Terlepas dari masa masa sulit itu, Iwan mengatakan kondisi saat ini sudah jauh lebih baik ketimbang dulu. Terutama karena produk tekstil Indonesia sudah jauh lebih bersaing dengan produk China.
