Established in 1952, Erlangga Group is one of the first Indonesian publishers that focused on school books. Today, within its sixth decades of services, Erlangga Group has formed a distinctive presence in Indonesia’s publishing scene. We are well-known for the fine quality of our publications and the large range of our products.
Surviving the rise and fall of Indonesia’s educational sector, we are now the biggest educational publisher in Indonesia. Furthermore, during the last ten years, we have published many titles written by internationally and locally famous authors, especially for children books and trade books. Hence, our products become a mix of beautifully produced textbooks, children books, and trade books. Now, we can proudly announce that Erlangga Group is the home of many well-known authors and famous children’s characters.
In creating products, we always ensure that the products are enriched with didactic value, products that can be enjoyed by many Indonesians. To achieve that, we do our best in distributing the products throughout Indonesia, the fourth most populated country in the world. For that reason alone, we have been expanding our marketing offices throughout Indonesia.
Being a publishing group that is widely known for its beautiful, high-quality products, and caring customer services, Erlangga reached its success from the cooperation of our affiliates: GAP PRINT, Eureka, and Erlass Institute. Together, we strive to achieve the best in customer satisfaction.
