Bahrain Polytechnic visits Majaal warehouse centre
Key faculty members of Bahrain Polytechnic (BP) were recently welcomed at First Bahrain’s flagship Majaal project, an SME-focused warehousing facility.
The faculty were welcomed by Amin Al Arrayed, general manager of First Bahrain and managing director of Majaal, and given an extensive tour of the facility to get more insight into the development and trends in the logistics industry.
Located within Salman Industrial City at Bahrain Investment Wharf, the Majaal warehouse development presently offers 130,000 square feet of industrial work space complemented with a range of value-added services focused on elevating the standards of warehousing projects in the region.
The visit came as part of First Bahrain’s support for leadership development and quality education in Bahrain, specifically here through Bahrain Polytechnic.
Al Arrayed is an active member of the curricula advisory committee and supports students by offering an opportunity to engage directly with industry throughout their studies.
"I am privileged to contribute to the development of quality and practical education in the Kingdom of Bahrain through my work with the Bahrain Polytechnic, which helps support students in learning about the logistics sector – a vital element in Bahrain's future development and economic growth," he said.
"Majaal will continue to support the Bahrain Polytechnic by affording students the time and opportunity to gain practical experience and insight into the world of logistics and preparing them for the increasingly competitive job market.”
As part of the visit, Bahrain Polytechnic faculty also met some Majaal tenants and were given a presentation on Majaal and First Bahrain's strategic approach to sustainable investment.
