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 employs 1,500 people worldwide. As an employer Marbach attaches great importance to the health of its employees. Therefore, the company decided to offer its employees attractive bicycle leasing in 2017 at its headquarter in Heilbronn. Recently the 150th bicycle has been leased from Marbach.
Marbach is known in the market for providing individual solutions. So far, manual top knives have not been part of Marbach's portfolio. However, as customer requirements for high-precision manual top knives have become more and more demanding, Marbach has intensively dealt with this topic. The result is tools manufactured in a new production process which optimally meets customer requirements for more precision.
Marbach uses numerous dieboards for its cutting-dies. Depending on the requirements of the order, suitable dieboard material is selected in coordination with the customer. For high demands on the dimensional stability and service life of a tool, the Marbach portfolio includes various dimensionally stable dieboards.
With its innovation pure edge Marbach ensures satisfaction of packaging manufacturers and brand owners. This technology stands for beautiful visible edges for corrugated board packaging and so for sales-boosting presentation of branded products at the point of sale. In addition, pure edge impresses with its durability and permanently consistent die-cutting results.
