Marbach will be represented with a stand at the IHK education fair in the redblue center in Heilbronn from 9 to 11 May 2019.
Nicole Schmitt, human resources advisor and training manager at Marbach: "The education fair is a great opportunity for us to get to know our future apprentices personally and to talk to them directly. For a medium-sized family-owned business like ourselves, the topic of junior staff is clearly important. We need good employees in order to advance the goals of our company and to ensure a successful future. Many of our managers started their professional careers as apprentices at Marbach."
Marbach currently has 55 apprentices in 12 different administrative and technical professions and in different fields of study. Training is exclusively tailored to company requirements, which is why Marbach has a hiring rate of almost 100 %. The company has been awarded the dualis seal of approval by the Heilbronn-Franken Chamber of Industry and Commerce, in recognition of its top quality training.
Schmitt continues: "At the education fair, visitors can obtain comprehensive information about our apprenticeship professions and courses of study. Not only the training managers are present at the stand, but also Marbach apprentices from various professions as well. They welcome any questions about their apprenticeship. It couldn't be more practical."
Apart from conversations Marbach has of course also planned different exciting activities for the young visitors to its exhibition booth.
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.
