RIYADH (February 6) – The management of Kwik Kopy Business Center (KKBC) in Riyadh made a special presentation to Callem personnel at its headquarters on January 27 in celebration of the joint project that earned the Saudi-based KKBC a U.S. award for printing excellence. KKBC- Riyadh won the Outstanding Achievement in Printing Award (OAPA) late last year at the International Center for Entrepreneurial Development (ICED) annual Conference in Chicago. ICED is KKBC’s parent company. A framed replica of the OAPA medal and award-winning four color mobile phone guide, created by Callem’ designer, Mario Alcantara, and printed by KKBC, was presented to Safrain Ahmed, Callem marketing manager, and Rami Abdulghani, Callem personnel manager, at the January ceremony.
“Winning the OAPA award shows the merit of collaboration between business partners,” said KKBC General Manager Dr. Fahd Al Damer. “We are so pleased that our efforts have been recognized internationally. We look forward to continuing a successful partnership with Callem, our valued client.”
The phone guide was created as a marketing tool for Callem’s “In Touch” advertising campaign. Callem is one of the fastest growing mobile phone retailers in KSA with a network of more than 70 outlets.
“We are satisfied and happy that our elite brand is in safe hands,” said Safain Ahmed. “KKBC has not only given Callem quality printing, but also service par excellence. They truly deserve this prestigious international award.”
Kwik Kopy Business Centers provide a “one-stop shop”– design, color printing, and digital copying and printing and packing and shipping. KKBC accepts files electronically for all types of printing projects, and assists in consulting, creating and distributing marketing materials for businesses of any size.
Kwik Kopy Business Centers began establishing a presence in Riyadh in early 2006 after Sheikh Abdullah Al-Hubayyeb, chairman of the Abnaee Holding Group, signed an agreement for master license agreement for Saudi Arabia and 17 other countries with the International Center for Entrepreneurial Development (ICED), KKBC parent company in the United States. The franchise is managed and operated through the Mafaz International Development Company, one of the Abnaee Holding Group companies.
