Mowilex wins second consecutive Best Managed Companies award from Deloitte

01 August 2023

Paint manufacturer PT Mowilex Indonesia won a 2023 Best Managed Companies in Indonesia award from Deloitte, marking its second consecutive year as an honouree. The company, which produces premium paints and coatings, was recognised for industry leadership, management quality and economic success.

“The Mowilex management team balances the complicated and often opposing interests of shareholders, customers and employees, while also implementing environmentally responsible practices. We operate in a very competitive industry which demands that we continuously innovate and strive for efficiency,” says Niko Safavi, CEO of PT Mowilex Indonesia. “We don’t set out to win awards. Instead, our vision is to be Indonesia’s most trusted paint brand. This recognition by Deloitte, an organisation with tremendous integrity and credibility, demonstrates that Mowilex is on the right track.”

Niko Safavi will be the keynote speaker at the upcoming Asia Pacific Coatings Conference in Bangkok this September.

Deloitte Indonesia presented Safavi with Mowilex’s award during a July 27 ceremony at the Grand Hyatt Jakarta. Private companies honoured by Deloitte are independently evaluated against a framework applied to 1,300 Best Managed Companies worldwide. Assessments explore strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and governance and financials.

Mowilex distinguishes itself with noteworthy sustainability efforts, including four consecutive carbon neutral certifications, major solar investments and the recent planting of 50,000 trees that will protect coastline and capture carbon. In early 2023, the company opened a new factory designed to reduce carbon emissions by up to 7%. The green building features innovative technologies and a zero-waste water treatment system that cleans and repurposes all water used in the production process.

Mowilex also stands out for its exceptional organisational approach.

“We’re succeeding thanks to our flat management structure, which encourages risk-taking guided by sound analysis; our investments to improve skills and technology; our stance on environmental responsibility; and our pursuit of excellence in governance,” says Safavi. “One of the most gratifying aspects of the Best Managed Companies award is that it recognizes management, including the dozens of talented Mowilex managers and team members who support our executives.”

Roy Tedja, Best Managed Companies Leader, Deloitte Indonesia said, “We welcome eleven winners to the Indonesia Best Managed Companies awards programme this year. They joined the elite global community of Best Managed Companies across 46 countries, and are at the forefront of their industry, contributing to their business community and the Indonesian economy. I’m confident they will continue to strive for greater success in the years to come. My heartfelt congratulations to the 2023 winners.”

Best Managed is a flagship programme presented by Deloitte Private, a division of Deloitte exclusively focused on serving private clients of all sizes.
