The Universidad de Monterrey ABRE Center is part of the university’s Engineering and Technology Division. Its mission is to encourage company competitiveness through innovation in containers, packages and packaging methods.
The name ABRE became from the word “open” in spanish. All commercial and industrial products come in a package. When the purchaser opens the package, they expect the product to be in perfect condition. The ABRE Center has focused on giving the industry an opportunity to assess its products before launching them into the market in order to guarantee that they are in good condition when they reach the end consumer.
Through specialized training, transport simulation tests, design, materials evaluation, and the building of prototypes, the ABRE Center helps the industry to improve and to reduce the costs of its packages.
At ABRE Center are working technical and packaging professionals, as well as industrial consultants who offer to the industry advice on any area or packaging.
