PT Jayakarta was founded by Ir. Harijadi Ramli and Ir. Iskandar Dewanto to do Electrical works. At that time, the total staff included two directors and only four electricians.
To improve its image and emphasizing its commitment to the industry, the company's name was changed to PT Jaya Kencana Electrical Company. To accommodate the growing for air conditioning, a sister company, PT Jaya Kencana Air Conditioning Company was established. A new partner, Ir. Herdianto Prasodjo, joined to strengthen the organization.
After re-organization and rationalization, PT Jaya Kencana Air Conditioning Company was merged into PT Jaya Kencana Electric Company, and Ir. Herdianto Prasodjo was taken in as partner in the company.
In 1983, we were appointed the sole agent of Goldstar Elevators in Indonesia. PT Jaya Kencana now has the largest Elevators and Escalators market share in Indonesia.
