JAKARTA - PT Arwana Citramulia Tbk (ARNA) posted net sales of Rp 2.15 trillion in 2019, up from Rp 1.97 trillion in 2018. This increase was due to the sales volume growth and higher selling prices of ceramic products.
Rudy Sujanto, Corporate Secretary of PT Arawana Citramulia Tbk (ARNA) said that sales in 2019 rose 9.1% compared to sales in 2018. "Top line grows by 9.1%; net sales, in terms of volume, grows by 6%, and in terms of average selling price also grows by 3%," he said.
In addition, the performance improvement this year was due to the efficiency implemented in supply chain, gas usage, and glaze materials.
