Since then, Tetra Pak investor has trusted and selected TVC as the project management contractor for the new factory (Greenfiled Factory).
For desgin work, Tetra Pak has used the basic desgin team (Sweden) as a collection of units that have been involved in designing Tetra Pak in 44 project worldwide including 6 Tetra Pak factories in Sweden. However, the contractor managing the host country must be responsible for checking the basic desgin, considering it in accordance with current standards, legal regulations and implementing construction desgin to meet the law of host country.
