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.
Marbach was recently visited by its customer Å&R Carton Lund AB for an audit. Å&R Carton looked closely at Marbach from a number of viewpoints and certified Marbach with a very good performance.
With its marbanick|2 for paperboard tools, Marbach has brought a hand tool onto the market that convinces users with its flexibility and simplicity. Since its introduction in May 2018, Marbach has sold almost 200 of these hand-held devices.
Marbach expands its Die Supplies & Automation division. From 01 February 2019, André Angermeir joins the Marbach team as the new Sales Manager. With Angermeir, Marbach has been able to gain an industry insider with a wealth of experience in the world of cutting-dies.
Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
