Marbach will soon start its joint venture Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Cutting Tools Co Ltd. in China. As of July, Marbach will have a further production site in Asia in addition to its production in Malaysia. The range includes cutting-dies, stripping and blanking tools for the Chinese tobacco and folding carton industry.
Dominic Fischer, Customer Service Manager of the new location in China: "After signing the contract in December 2017, we immediately started to implement our plans. The main topics were buildings, equipping the building with production facilities, employee planning and training. We are very proud that we have been able to achieve everything in this short time: in July we will start production in Tianjin. We will begin with a relatively small team in production and administration and then gradually expand the site. In future the employees in Tianjin will ensure that the Chinese market can be supplied directly from China with tools in Marbach quality".
In addition to its new location in China, Marbach has many branches around the world and plans to further expand its international operations in the coming years.
In 2012 Marbach started manufacturing cutting-dies in Charlotte (USA) and in 2014 in Malaysia. Both locations were very quickly successful and are today important service providers in the Marbach Group. Fischer: "Our joint venture in China should also quickly become part of this success story.”
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
Marbach has been using for some time now a new rubber for rubbering cutting-dies. The name of this high-performance material is flexpower. Certified by ISEGA for use in the food industry, this rubber offers numerous advantages to operators. Marbach uses flexpower in corrugated board tools (both flat and rotary) and also sells it as raw material.
Marbach is one of the large material suppliers in Germany. Under the name Marbach Die Supplies, Marbach offers materials for packaging manufacturers that meet the requirements in the field of die-cutting. In order to support its customers even more in increasing their performance, Marbach has expanded its material portfolio.
Marbach was present at the IADD Odyssey in Atlanta Georgia from May 1 to 3, 2019. At this event Marbach showcased its latest technologies in the fields of die-cutting technology as well as machines and materials for cutting-die production. More than 250 visitors showed particular interest in Marbach and its technologies. During the three days many interesting conversations took place at the two Marbach stands.
