Our origin goes back to 1980 when we were the Acrylics Division of PT Astari Niagara, a company which produced acrylic sheets and wooden photo frames. We were the first and only cast acrylic sheet manufacturer in Indonesia, pioneering the market.
Such was our success that in 2001 the Acrylics Division formally spun off and was legally reorganized as PT Astari Niagara Internasional.
Today, Astari Niagara Internasional has become a leading manufacturer in the global market, producing high quality acrylic cast sheets that successfully competes with European and American made products.
