PT Jaya Timur (“Jaya Timur”) was founded in year 2005 by a family living with a great passion for automotive batteries. Jaya Timur started as an importer and distributor of car batteries (aka. storage or rechargeable batteries) in Batam, Indonesia, supplying batteries to dealers in Batam and other islands nearby at various locations. In a short span of 2 years, Jaya Timur saw its customer base expanding considerably and that the growing demand for its batteries became increasingly challenging to meet, especially when Jaya Timur then was very much reliant on overseas suppliers for its battery stocks.
Seeing the challenge as a great opportunity, Jaya Timur knew it had to emerge as a stronger player who could deliver to customers what they want or even delight user-community by exercising direct control over Quality, Service, Expertise as well as Price for batteries.
With this in mind, Jaya Timur took a brave and big leap to become the pioneer battery manufacturer in 2007 in Batam island. Thanks to its battery-enthusiast founder, the late Mr. Tan Se Jan and his offsprings who picked up the manufacturing know-how in a short time and never also forget the great support from and knowledge imparted by his friends who are battery experts.
This transformational move made Jaya Timur one of the few battery manufacturers in Batam even till today.
It has since become a ready source to meet the constant demand for quality batteries at prices attractive to other dealers as well as our loyal battery users, and the rest is history.
The zeal and energy of Jaya Timur’s founder, family members and staff have brought the company to where it is today and it never stops progressing from where it was. Jaya Timur’s commitment to each battery produced can be shown in its attainment of SNI certification since 2015. Most recently, Jaya Timur has also been accorded ISO (in year 2021). We are proud to be the regular participating member in the SNI-certified battery manufacturer community, alongside other long-established battery manufacturers like Yuasa, GS.
