Marbach Tool Manufacturing successfully exhibited at the Chinaplas 2017 in Guangzhou (China). As part of the foreign and export promotion by the German government, Marbach was located in the German section of the Chinaplas with a small booth. All important German machine manufacturers, as well as numerous suppliers of machine parts and injection molders, were represented there.
The trade fair hosted 3,300 exhibitors from 40 countries in a total exhibition area of 250,000 m². 140,000 visitors were recorded on four trade fair days, 35,000 of them from abroad.
Marbach had many different visitors at the booth on those four days. Besides existing customers various new interesting contacts could be made. Marbach Director of Sales Asia, Thomas Reinhardt: “The Chinaplas was once again a very successful event for us. Multiple tool requests are already being processed. And also projects for the next months have been initiated. We are looking forward to the next exhibition, that will take place in one year – this time in Shanghai.
In December 2017 Marbach introduced to the market its new cleaning device for corrugated board machines: the mplaten|cleaner. Since then, more than 10 of these devices have been sold. And further orders are in the pipeline.
The National Plastics Exhibition (NPE) takes place every 3 years in Orlando. The who’s who of the global plastics industry will meet in 2018 from 7 to 11 May. As a specialist for the production of thermoforming tools, Marbach will again be exhibiting there this year and presenting its latest developments.
For some time now Marbach has been offering pure edge technology for achieving clean visible edges in corrugated board. Many customers are now using pure edge. It has been shown that this technology not only provides clean visible edges for corrugated board packaging, but is able to do much more.
Already in 2012, the Heilbronn-based die-maker Marbach had established a location in the USA with its subsidiary in Charlotte, North Carolina. This company has been constantly growing and has in the meantime established itself in the American market. For this reason, Jan Brunner, CEO Marbach America, was invited to the Heilbronn House of Commerce on the 8th March as an expert at the themed evening "Germany - USA: Relationship wise". This event, organized by the German Graduate School of Management & Law (GGS), the Kreissparkasse Heilbronn and the Chamber of Industry and Commerce Heilbronn-Franken, was about the economic and political situation in the USA and the relationship between the USA and Germany. But also about how this has changed - especially over the past year.
