Pabrik Limoen was founded in 1923 under the name Limoen J.C van Drongelen & Hellfach. The factory is now called Telasih Syrup and was built by a Dutch man named J.C van Drongelen. In 1942, this factory was taken over by the Japanese, who at that time occupied Surabaya. Then, when Japan lost to the allies, the factory was taken back by the Dutch until there was a nationalization program in 1958, in which all Dutch-owned companies were handed over to the Indonesian government. After that, the factory was handed over to the Regional Food and Beverage Industry Company of East Java Province in 1962. In 2002, the Siropen factory became owned by PT Pabrik Es Wira Jatim, which is the holding company of PT Panca Wira Usaha Jawa Timur, which is a Regionally Owned Enterprise (BUMD) East Java Province. The Siropen factory building has become a cultural heritage in Surabaya since March 17, 2015. The Surabaya city government has made the Siropen factory a cultural heritage because of the historical value in the building and in the syrup.
