Marbach is taking responsibility for the environment. For many years now, sustainability has played an important role in the Heilbronn-based family business. Now Marbach is setting a new benchmark: from now on, standard printing toners will be replaced by recyclable ones at the Heilbronn headquarters.
In its CSR report, Marbach documents its efforts to promote sustainability. In addition to environmental aspects, economic and social responsibility also play a major role. With its latest campaign, the Heilbronn-based company can now combine ecology and economy.
Marbach-CIO Frank Müthing: "After an intensive test phase, we changed our Heilbronn site completely to the use of recyclable toners. We are thus killing two birds with one stone: on the one hand, we are able to slow down the spiralling costs somewhat and on the other hand help protect the environment. This is because the reuse of numerous components – such as cartridge cases, means that a huge amount of waste can be avoided. Additionally, each recycled toner cartridge will save up to 10 liters of raw oil."
In the medium term, Marbach plans to change its other locations to recyclable toners.
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.
Since drupa 2016 Marbach has had digital zone levelling in its portfolio. Almost 400 machines have been equipped with a DZL|plate in the past 3 years. And the number is increasing every day.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
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.
