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 employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
With its innovation pure edge Marbach ensures satisfaction of packaging manufacturers and brand owners. This technology stands for beautiful visible edges for corrugated board packaging and so for sales-boosting presentation of branded products at the point of sale. In addition, pure edge impresses with its durability and permanently consistent die-cutting results.
