The new entity aims to become the leading value-added service provider in the wireless device industry in Indonesia and other selected markets in Southeast Asia. In addition to distributing mobile and connected devices, the joint venture will focus on delivering a wide range of supply chain services for operators, retailers and mobile device original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that are eager to tap into the broad opportunities in the dynamic Indonesian market.

Sugiono Wiyono Sugialam, President Director of Trikomsel, said: "Strategic wireless services such as supply chain optimization, multi-channel and value-added distribution, handset protection, and buy-back and trade-in solutions are becoming increasingly important in the Indonesian market, and Brightstar is a global leader in these fields. The joint venture is a perfect opportunity to bring best-in-class global solutions to our customers and consumers throughout Indonesia and beyond. At the same time, these initiatives will create new lines of businesses which we expect will boost our overall performance and drive further growth for Trikomsel."
