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.
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.
