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.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "In Mexico, the packaging market is growing strongly. In recent years there has been a lack of investment in new technologies and machinery. This is currently undergoing radical change. Large investments are being made in die-cutting equipment, and Mexican companies want to produce to top international standards. For this they need our support. In the tool technology itself. But also in the area of training and consulting. We would like to assist the local market with our materials and our expertise in order to develop it further and to accompany our large Mexican customer base step by step into the future. But not only our direct customers need our support. We also want to raise the overall level of die-cutting technology by equipping die-manufacturers with better materials. And all this with adequate stock availability so as to avoid long delivery times and high freight costs."
In addition, Marbach wants to attract new customers who have not yet imported our tools. The new branch will simplify significantly the import of cutting-dies made by Marbach USA or Marbach Germany and thus considerably reduce the barriers to the import of tools.
Brunner continues: "We are looking forward to the opening of our new subsidiary and to be able to support the Mexican market with our tools, our materials and our know-how."
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.
