At Jabil, innovation is at the core of everything we do. Whether we're designing the next smartphone or the navigation for an autonomous car, we're passionate about helping our customers build cutting-edge products.   

It was this passion that lead us to unveil our first customer innovation center, Jabil Blue Sky, in San Jose, California, back in 2015. But the Blue Sky Center is more than a facility—it's an experience that ignites ideas, curiosity and collaboration for our customers. With our ever-expanding global presence, we're offering our customers the same access to innovation in Europe as we do in Silicon Valley.  

On June 15th, Jabil held the grand opening of its new customer engagement center in Tortosa, Spain. Located in our Jabil Packaging Solutions compound, the 60,000 square feet facility will host strategic and collaborative relationships with our brand customers in the consumer packaged goods, food & beverage, consumer health and industrial/professional market segments.  

"With the addition of Jabil Blue Sky Tortosa, we're well-positioned to provide our customers in Europe with unmatched expertise and technologies to help them accelerate innovation in their product lines," said Erich Hoch, CEO of Jabil Packaging Solutions. 

The center will create 80 new jobs once at full capacity, and it will house powerful capabilities to support customer innovation, including:   

  • A state-of-the-art Customer Engagement Center, showroom and projection experience highlighting Packaging trends and the precision packaging journey 
  • A leading-edge lab for project development and mold design and construction
