Smurfit Kappa at Pack Expo Chicago
Smurfit Kappa continues to connect to customers in the American market, with plans to exhibit at the Pack Expo trade fair in Chicago from 2nd to 5th November 2014.
This major show attracts 50,000 business visitors every year – and is the perfect opportunity for Smurfit Kappa to reinforce its presence in this highly innovative market.
Smurfit Kappa is proud to be one of the few players offering a complete Bag-in-Box® packaging system. From bags and taps, through to boxes and accessories, to complete filling lines, it allows customers to work with a single partner throughout the complete process of packaging liquid products.
This trade show is also an opportunity for Smurfit Kappa to showcase the Vitop Original® tap – the leading tap for wine in the world, which is making efforts to break the US market.
Christophe de Carbonnières, General Manager Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box in Canada, said: “We strongly believe the Vitop Original® tap will seduce the American market very soon. Its excellent oxygen barrier performance, exceptional and consistent quality and its “zero leak rate” (< 0.000003% since launch!) is recognised worldwide and envied by its competitors”.
Indeed, during production, a 0.4 bar tightness test is applied to each tap and over 60 quality control points are checked periodically.
