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 is already looking forward to the opening of drupa on 16 June 2020. The most important international trade fair for the printing industry, which takes place every four years, is a very special highlight for Marbach. In addition to its latest innovations, Marbach will present its extended portfolio of packaging services in Duesseldorf.
With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Marbach started its training program one and a half years ago. Under the name "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Today Marbach offers practice-oriented training courses in all aspects of die-cutting packaging. The new training program for 2020 is now available
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies includes materials for the rubbering of cutting-dies. When it comes to rubber materials, the most important thing is that they are resistant and durable. When used in the right place in the cutting-die, they ensure that the paperboard material is ejected optimally during the cutting process. In addition, they ensure the stability of the nicks and thus provide smooth production processes in the die-cutting machine.
