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."
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.
