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."
Special situations require special actions. In view of current events, we are intensively engaged in the question of how we can support facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, etc., but also how we can protect our employees. In addition to door handle hooks for employees, which we manufacture ourselves at our Heilbronn site and which are already actively in use, we are currently producing special face shields which are used in hospitals.
Marbach employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
