Tetra Pak Saudi Arabia awarded
Tetra Pak Saudi Arabia has been named Market Company of the Year 2004 by Tetra Pak Global out of over 55 Tetra Pak market companies. To mark the occasion, Nils Bjorkman, Tetra Pak market operations president, visited the Saudi company, Arab News reported.
“There are several factors that made Tetra Pak Saudi Arabia the company of the year including customer service, sales, and technical service,” Bjorkman said.
Tetra Pak Saudi Arabia is part of the Swedish Tetra Laval Group, the world’s leading supplier of processing and packaging solutions for food products, operating in more than 165 markets with over 20,000 employees and a turnover in excess of 7 billion euros. The company has been present in Saudi Arabia since the 1950s.
Tetra Pak Saudi Arabia established and inaugurated its factory in 1998, the first Tetra Pak “Greenfield” packaging development in the world to incorporate both fiber and plastic technologies within one complex.
After another two years, and a total investment of $70 million, the company expanded its operations to spread over 43,000 square meters.
