DENTON, TEXAS – Food processing and packaging solutions specialist Tetra Pak announced the company expanded its Technical Training Center, which is a space dedicated to hands-on training for employees and customers.

The supplier said it upgraded the 9,400-square-foot facility to grow the capacity of its field force, enhance experiences for customers, and build competency through workforce development.

Tetra Pak said it designed the new and improved center in Denton, Texas, to facilitate “robust” in-person and virtual training. The company said education opportunities will cover such topics as equipment lines, operations, maintenance, quality control, processing, packaging and automation.

“This expansion is an important investment in both Tetra Pak and our customers’ futures,” said Fabio Raffone, the company’s vice president of customer service operations, Americas. “Our employees and customers will receive the top-notch training they need to deliver on our commitment to driving innovation, quality and growth.”

Features at the training center, per Tetra Pak, include classrooms equipped with state of the art technology and instructors who are there to make things easy for participants.

Sasha Ilyukhin, the company’s senior vice president of processing services and services solutions, said the center benefits Tetra Pak and its customers.

“Our employees get excellent training to help them advance their skills and careers, and our customers benefit from gaining critical knowledge and skills that can help drive business growth, all without disrupting production at their own facilities,” Ilyukhin said.

Tetra Pak also shared that the training facility makes use of fully digitized training materials, eliminating the use of paper in order to reduce the center’s overall carbon footprint.
