Marbach has strengthened the team in its Indiana subsidiary since autumn 2018. With Phil Driskill, Marbach has gained an industry insider with a wide range of experience in the world of thermoforming.
Driskill has worked for Landis Plastics and OMV Machinery. He has also been responsible for research and development at Berry Global. He possesses deep knowledge in article design, tool making and plastic processing. And in his various positions, Driskill has always been involved in the business development of each company.
Hubert Kittelmann, Sales Manager Marbach Werkzeugbau: "Phil has always been personally involved with customers and suppliers from all over the world. For us he is the perfect man to implement our ambitious plans for North America. Few know the needs of our customers better than he does. And by the way: Phil also knows Marbach very well. When Marbach founded the US plant in Elkhart 25 years ago he was part of the original US crew, he thus helped create the foundation for our long lasting success story."
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.
