For three years now, Marbach has been one of the few diemakers to operate a die-cutting machine at its site in Heilbronn. The Eterna machine (formerly Brausse) is used for customer and employee training, for tests of in-house developments and also for customer projects with well-known brand owners. In July this year, Marbach and Eterna can look back on 3 years of successful cooperation.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "We are very happy that we decided to invest in a die-cutting machine back then. During the last three years we have been able to carry out numerous projects and training and so optimally support our customers in their daily challenges. We are very satisfied with our die-cutting machine and will continue to use it in the coming years. Many thanks to Eterna for their great cooperation."
Michael Münchow, senior sales director folding boxes at Eterna, adds: "A lot has happened for us in past few years. Brausse has been re-marketed under the name Eterna (a BOBST Group company). For this reason the machine which is located at Marbach has received a new name. The Brausse 1060 ER is now called ECut 1060 elite ER. Cooperation with Marbach has been excellent from the very beginning. The chemistry was simply perfect."
Brunner: "Because tool specifications of the Eterna machines follow the BOBST Group standard exactly, and have a corresponding operating concept, most participants in our training courses can effectively implement taught methods and learning content, directly on their own company's die-cutting machines. This is why we decided to purchase this machine at that time. In the last few years we have increased and intensified our cooperation with Eterna. We are looking forward to further exciting joint projects."

Once again this year Marbach will follow in a long-established tradition: Marbach will make Christmas donations to two aid projects under the motto “donations instead of presents”. When selecting the recipients of the donations, it has been important to the Marbach Management to split the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 Euro to "Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V." and an additional donation of 3,000 Euro to the "Tafeln Heilbronn" (a food distribution charity). Due to the current pandemic situation, however, the handover of the donations was different than usual this year. One of the donations was handed over online, the other with face masks and at a distance.
In November Marbach participated in the new virtual trade show ConneXion. During the 4 weeks of the ConneXion exhibition large numbers of visitors informed themselves about news in the packaging industry. Marbach presented its latest new developments for more performance in packaging production.
