Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "The packaging market in the USA is one of the largest in the world. After our plant in Charlotte, North Carolina, has developed very well in recent years, we want to offer our customers in the USA even more on-site performance. Our new subsidiary, which we will open this summer, is located in Michigan City, Indiana. We chose this location because it is an excellent place to serve customers in the Chicago metropolitan area and throughout the Midwest."
Planning is in full swing. A suitable building has already been found. Marbach is currently equipping the new company with state-of-the-art machines and materials. In addition, Marbach is already recruiting and training employees for the new location. In Michigan City, Marbach will concentrate mainly on manufacturing of tools for the folding carton industry. In addition, tools for flatbed die cutting of corrugated board are manufactured.
Fernando Pires, COO Marbach America: "We are excited to announce our new plant in the USA. Our business is running extremely well and customers are happy. Soon we will be able to offer more capacity, and shorter delivery times, especially for customers in the Midwestern States. To ensure that everything will run smoothly during the start-up phase, the new employees will be trained and supported by experts from other Marbach plants. Our team is looking forward to bring on board many new customers.”
Marbach Werkzeugbau is looking forward to the upcoming K fair in Düsseldorf. This will take place from 16 to 23 October 2019. Marbach will be represented with a 94 m² stand and will present its new products to the visitors of this important plastics fair.
Marbach will take part in the Night of Apprenticeship in Heilbronn on the 26th of September 2019. On this day young people will be able to experience Marbach under the motto "Pack the world. With an apprenticeship at Marbach." Potential apprentices will be able to inform themselves about apprenticeships and studies offered at Marbach and also get to know the company.
Marbach is currently working intensively on the topics of digitalization and industry 4.0. Marbach is also focusing on the digitalization of industrial processes. One step resulting from this project is changing invoicing from postal to digital. As of 01 August 2019, the majority of german Marbach customers will receive their invoices by email.
In its Marbach Die Supplies & Automation division Marbach supplies machines, equipment and materials for die-making and printshops. With the robogrip, Marbach has a rule puller in its portfolio which proves itself to be an effective helper at the die-cutting machine.
