Dear Reader,
Never before has our market environment compounded economic uncertainty with political instability to such a level as witnessed in
2011. Nevertheless
Ti
faced the culminating challenges of the later part of 2011 with courage and determination and I am proud of
the reactivity that was shown throughout our company. Going forward, we do not know whether quieter times will come back soon or
whether we have to brace ourselves for other bumpy rides. But I know that I can count on each one of you and no matter how tough
the conditions, we will fare better than competition.
We want to be the packaging solutions provider of choice to our customers. In Australia the effects of macro-economic shifts posed
its challenges in the shorter term. We reviewed our strategy swiftly and spent 2011 implementing major decisions to adjust including
a 10MM$ investment to close the productivity gap. Under the leadership of Elie Jarrous, the organization is now reinventing itself
to come back stronger than ever.
On the innovation front, we have made progress with the maturing of Extendo, our high barrier initiative. As for Nativia, our
sustainability proposal, we invest very significant resources and we dedicate equipment so as to be in what we believe to be fields of
great value for the brand owners.
I welcome 2012 with all the challenges that come with it. As we have done year after year, together, we will bring Taghleef Industries
to new territories and on the high grounds of the Bopp industry which reaffirms our commitment to the business and to the industry.
To all of you, my sincere wishes of good health, happiness and prosperity for the new coming year.
