Marbach founded a new branch in Tianjin together with the machine manufacturer Masterwork in the summer of 2018. Cutting-dies for the Chinese folding box industry are mainly manufactured at this location. A few months later, Marbach started its new materials subsidiary in Mexico. A production facility in the USA will follow in the summer of 2019. At Marbach all signs point to expansion.
Dominic Fischer, Production Manager at Marbach in China: "A lot has happened at Marbach in recent months. At our new location in China, we have already conducted several training sessions with our chinese customers. The training courses have been very popular because of their practical relevance and the competence of the trainers. The next customer training has already been planned for the summer."
In addition, Marbach expanded its local portfolio in January 2019 and now also produces embossing plates in China. This means that customers in China can be supplied even faster with suitable tools. Investment has also been made in rule processing machines and blanking technology.
Fischer continues: "The local requirements in China are somewhat different from those in other countries. For this reason, we are currently adapting our technologies to market requirements in China. We are currently in a process of development."
Customers in China greatly appreciate Marbach technologies. This is because local tools often result in lower performance. In addition, set-up times are significantly longer than with Marbach tools.
Marbach provides apprenticeships in many different professions. The globally active company group has not forgotten its origins as a small craftsman's business. Marbach, therefore pays special attention to the technical apprenticeships it offers.
