Satu Bumi is a family owned business that commenced manufacturing GRC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) Commercial Planters, Large Planter Boxes and other precast concrete landscaping products at its fully-owned factory in Indonesia and its sales & marketing office in Australia in 2012.

The founding owners of Satu Bumi, Gary Landers and Harry Grace, both had very successful commercial careers in the Asia/Pacific region before establishing Satu Bumi and were looking for an opportunity to establish a new business with their sons, Robert and Lachlan.

The founders decided to enter the GRC manufacturing industry after recognising a real gap in the supply of quality GRC planter boxes and other concrete based landscaping products to the global wholesale market and in particular to the commercial market in Australia. Although GRC manufacturing technology had been around in these markets for some time, it was clear that very few companies were able to manufacture and reliably supply quality GRC landscaping products in commercial volumes.

Commitment to Australia

Satu Bumi's sales, marketing and management office is in Australia because the business is fully owned by the Australian principals who are resident in Australia. Whereas the company's manufacturing facilities are in Indonesia because the cost of producing labour intensive products such as GRC is significantly less there than what can be achieved in Australia.

Commitment to Indonesia

Satu Bumi is a member of SEDEX and is dedicated to improving and maintaining responsible business and social practices in Labour Standards, Health & Safety Standards, Environmental Standards and Business Ethics to ensure it meets both local Indonesian standards and the standards required by our international customer base.

Satu Bumi's strength as a GRC Manufacturer is highly dependant on its strong Management Team.
