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.
With its stripping technologies, Marbach has an extensive portfolio on the market for smooth processes and waste-free stripping. An important product, and the basic requirement for a stable stripping process, is the precision set-up aid marbapoint. The male and female strippers are precisely positioned in relation to each other. The marbapoint is therefore a simple and cost-effective way to optimize the setup process.
On the 5th of July 2019 the Family Day took place for the 6th time at Marbach. The theme was "Beach Party - it's summertime". Almost 400 employees and their families gathered on the company premises and celebrated together in bright sunshine.
Marbach is exhibiting - as in previous years - at the FachPack in Nuremberg at the end of September. For Marbach, this coming together of the packaging industry has become an established part of the exhibition year.
Marbach founded a new branch in Tianjin together with the machine manufacturer Masterwork in the summer of 2018. Cutting-dies for the Chinese folding box industry are mainly manufactured at this location. A few months later, Marbach started its new materials subsidiary in Mexico. A production facility in the USA will follow in the summer of 2019. At Marbach all signs point to expansion.
