The Experience Center serves as a place for customers to get hands-on experience of the spectrum of capabilities offered by the Bag-in-Box technology.

It includes the latest technology, laboratory, interactive displays of the films, taps and boxes and technical expertise. 

Veronika Necasova, Bag-in-Box marketing department, Smurfit Kappa, ​said the center will not employ any additional people.
