Marbach Joint Venture. Now available: Marbach tools "Made in China".

The Joint Venture between Marbach and the Chinese machine manufacturer Masterwork has begun. Since July the company has been producing in China under the name Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Die Cutting Tools Co. Ltd., manufacturing cutting-dies for the national market. Besides its production in Malaysia, Marbach now has a second anchor in Asia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese cigarette and folding carton industry.

With this new location, Marbach wants to expand the availability of its tools around the globe. Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "We have expanded our international activities step by step in recent years. After having started production in the USA in 2012, Malaysia followed in 2014. And now tools in Marbach quality are also available directly on-site in China. We have been supplying the Chinese market with tools from Heilbronn for a very long time, but local production naturally makes us much more competitive and flexible. We hope for a good initial phase in the coming months and that Chinese customers will also appreciate Marbach's performance in the same measure as our customers do in our established markets."

Marbach will offer a portfolio tailored to the chinese market and its requirements in order to offer customers optimal performance.
