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 introduced its hand-held tool marbanick|2 to the market some time ago. Operators are enabled to quickly and easily insert waste nicks into cutting rules. So more and more customers now use the marbanick|2 in their production.
With its premium stripping tool masterstrip|plate, Marbach has for several years, been offering the market a special stripping technology that ensures fast and reliable stripping. This tool is becoming more and more the market standard.
Marbach has seen great potential for its specially produced polymar embossing. For this reason, Marbach has steadily invested in the required equipment at its locations worldwide in order to be able to produce polymar embossings locally.
Since the presentation of its mlas|compact-2 laser system, Marbach has already sold 10 of these machines. A trend that is strengthening. The Marbach laser’s recipe for success is its speed, its excellent cutting quality and a relatively small footprint despite the large machine format.
