Panggung Electric Citrabuana’s rise to prominence as the foremost Indonesian manufacturer of electronic goods can be traced back to its initial focus on the production of magnetic media. The group in 1973 was named the primary distributor and manufacturer of audio cassette tapes or audio magnetic tapes for Japan-based consumer electronics company MAXELL, and through this partnership benefitted from direct access to know how on production processes and managerial methods to ensure adherence to international standards of production. From this platform, the company developed its own audio cassette brand, PANAREC, to meet the needs of markets overseas and capitalize on its global reputation as a trustworthy manufacturer of magnetic media. Further cooperation with OEMs and a still ongoing business relationship with MAXELL have since seen the company become the largest producer of audio cassette tapes in Indonesia, predominantly serving developing markets where this technology is still used for purposes such as language learning.
