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.
Å&R Carton: "At Marbach we found a company with a long and successful tradition. The employees we spoke to were all very open and motivated. They are proud of what they do. Marbach is aware of its social responsibility and does a lot for its employees."
In addition to the areas of management system, personnel, quality, hygiene and sustainability, Å&R Carton also audited production at the Heilbronn-based die-maker.
Å&R Carton continues: "In the area of production we have seen that everything runs very well and with great efficiency. Exactly as it should be. All of our questions could be answered because all of the employees surveyed had very good knowledge of the processes involved. Production is well equipped and modern. A great environment for good delivery performance."
In the performance profile, Marbach's rating was in the range of 85 points from 100, which is a very high value in view of Å&R Carton's high demands on its suppliers.
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
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.
