 Welcome to The Raden Saleh® Group 



 Our Experience counts. Since 1755.



As grandnephew of Indonesia's foremost scientist and artist Raden Saleh Syarif Bustaman it is my privilege and great honor to introduce our Raden Saleh® Group to you.


The Raden Saleh® Group as it is today was originally started as an alliance between the Department of Education and Culture Republic of Indonesia, as well as the German government through the Embassy in Jakarta. 


But our proud origins go back to 1755 on Java, which makes us one of the oldest entities in Indonesia. 
It was in 1755 when the great-great-great grandfather of Raden Saleh (who was also my 4x great-grandfather) acquired the first property on Java which until today is "kampung Bustaman" in Semarang.
It was back then when our mutual great-great-great grandfather Kyai Ngabehi Kertoboso Bustaman was responsible for the founding of the Yokyakarta Sultanate and the signing of the "Treaty of Giyanti", because of his bravery in bringing the warring parties on Java together.

Since then we have made our name in the international business arena with RS® Logistics (air cargo, ocean freight and fine art transport), in real estate (RS® Road Construction or RS® Student Housing and university buildings).


Our success started in 1755 in Indonesia, but today we are also active internationally in Namibia, Africa, with the best direct connections to the USA, and Europe (where Raden Saleh lived for 20 years).


In 2008 we were appointed to represent the Indonesian Ministry of Investments (formerly BKPM) in Germany and Europe, which opens many doors to us.


In addition former President Dr. Yudhoyono bestowed the highest civilian Indonesian award ‘Bintang Mahaputera Adipradana’ posthumously to my granduncle Raden Saleh through us, his family.


As curator of Raden Saleh's heritage and legacy, and in order to commemorate his art and masterpieces, I have recently added a 4th department to our group, as we are  the only ones authorized worldwide to offer products and services bearing his trademarked name and brand.
Every Indonesian man and woman knows his name and his art, every child learns of his accomplishments. And every larger city in Indonesia has at least one 'Raden Saleh Street' or square named after my ancestor.

The above photo shows the Raden Saleh Pavilion at the World Exhibition 1883 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.


II am very much looking forward to hearing from you and working with you.
