Tetra Pak Arabia wins global award

Tetra Pak Arabia’s Jeddah factory has been awarded the “Advanced Special Award for Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) Achievement” by the Japanese Institute for Plant Maintenance (JIPM). 

The award recognizes the “world-class safety, security and reliability of the production and maintenance process as well as stabilization and improvement of product quality.”

The award is the latest in a long string of citations that began with the factory’s ISO 9001 Certification in 2001 and includes a number of subsequent JIPM recognitions.

Factory Director Tetra Pak Jeddah, Bulent Kozak, and WCM/TPM Manager Tetra Pak Jeddah, Abdullah Aziz, made the trip to Kyoto, Japan, to accept the award during a special ceremony. 

The ceremony was broadcasted live on Tetra Pak Jeddah’s factory floor.

“We are very happy to be recognized with this award from JIPM,” said Ziyad Al-Jadid, operational marketing director, Tetra Pak Arabia. “But our deepest pride lies in achieving the goals that prompted this honor. 

The award stems from the ongoing efforts of our highly committed personnel at our Jeddah factory and the success of the factory team in meeting the world-class manufacturing and quality standards set by JIPM.”

Tetra Pak Arabia’s Jeddah factory is the only plant in Saudi Arabia and the region to be recognized with the “Advanced Special Award for TPM Achievement,” the second-highest award in the JIPM 5-phase TPM (also known as WCM or World Class Manufacturing) trajectory. In the lead-up to receiving the Advanced Special Award, the Jeddah plant was named recipient of the JIPM Excellence Award 2008, the JIPM Consistency Award 2010 and the JIPM Special Award 2014, all prerequisites for receiving the current citation.

Located in the south of Jeddah, Tetra Pak Arabia’s carton converting factory supplies most of the carton packaging material for Saudi Arabia and exports to customers in 24 other countries in the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

Saudi law team gets right verdict in Kuwait ‘trial’

A team from Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s law department recently finished second in an Arabic moot court competition held at Kuwait International Law School.
The academic competition has teams of students from different law schools acting as advocates, and making written and spoken arguments to simulate a criminal law case.
Arabic moot court competitions have been hosted annually by one of the Arab universities in the region for the past five years. Thirteen teams representing different Arab countries took part in the Kuwait contest.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University’s major competencies include communication in both English and Arabic in professional and social situations; the ability to use modern technologies to acquire information, solve problems and produce planned results; the ability to reason logically and creatively to make informed and responsible decisions; the ability to perform professional responsibilities effectively in both local and international contexts; and being able to work effectively with others to accomplish tasks and achieve group goals.
The core competencies are a required part of curriculum for all students during their first two years in the college program. These competencies are evident on and off campus through student interaction with faculty, staff and others. This enables students to be successful in their chosen field and to contribute to the development of their communities.
Prince Mohammed bin Fahd University, located in Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, is one of the largest private universities in the Kingdom.
The university aims at educating the “whole” person; it recognizes that success in the world depends not only on knowledge of a specific academic discipline, but also on a broader set of skill and abilities.
