Saras 008 is apparently one of the most popular superhero characters in Indonesia, starring in comics, novels, films, a TV series, etc. It is difficult to find information about the company or companies that publishes her stories, particularly because most information about Saras 008 is NOT in English. She is truly a native Indonesian creation.

As far as I can tell, "Grasinda" is the name of the distribution and/or production company shown on the DVD covers for the Saras 008 DVDs pictured online.

The first appearance of Saras 008 is listed on the International Heroes website as: "Saras 008 (Pahlawan Kebajikan TV series, 1999)." It appears that "Pahlawan Kebajikan" is the name of a TV series and "Saras 008" is the title of an individual episode. But I'm not certain about this. I don't think "Pahlawan Kebajikan" is the name of an Indonesian TV station. "Pahlawan Kebajikan" is an in Indonesian phrase that translates directly to English as "Hero Virtues." A subtitle used by Saras 008 is "heroine of righteousness." Perhaps this is what "Pahlawan Kebajikan" translates into, and the full name of the TV series is "Saras 008: Pahlawan Kebajikan."
