Marbach was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
Å&R Carton: "At Marbach we found a company with a long and successful tradition. The employees we spoke to were all very open and motivated. They are proud of what they do. Marbach is aware of its social responsibility and does a lot for its employees."
In addition to the areas of management system, personnel, quality, hygiene and sustainability, Å&R Carton also audited production at the Heilbronn-based die-maker.
Å&R Carton continues: "In the area of production we have seen that everything runs very well and with great efficiency. Exactly as it should be. All of our questions could be answered because all of the employees surveyed had very good knowledge of the processes involved. Production is well equipped and modern. A great environment for good delivery performance."
In the performance profile, Marbach's rating was in the range of 85 points from 100, which is a very high value in view of Å&R Carton's high demands on its suppliers.
Marbach has been a specialist for the production of cutting-dies for the packaging industry for many decades. In addition, the Marbach portfolio also includes tools for special technical solutions. One of which is the production of cutting-dies with particularly high cutting rules.
In May of this year, Marbach launched its new lower pin unit with high precision lower pins. This is mainly used for jobs where very small amounts of waste have to be stripped and where requirements for die-cut blanks to be waste-free are very high. With the lower pin unit, waste is stripped very safely in these areas of application. In the last months, several customers have already been using the new Marbach technology. Customer feedback has been consistently positive.
Marbach is working at full speed on various digitalization and Industry 4.0 projects.
