Marbach is currently working intensively on the topics of digitalization and industry 4.0. Marbach is also focusing on the digitalization of industrial processes. One step resulting from this project is changing invoicing from postal to digital. As of 01 August 2019, the majority of german Marbach customers will receive their invoices by email.
Simon Baumgärtner, Controlling at Marbach: "In order to be true to our motto "Packaging. Performance.You.", we will no longer send our invoices in printed form by post but electronically as of 01.08.2019. Many of our customers already receive their invoices digitally. We now also want to upgrade the remaining customers who are able to process electronic invoices. So that everyone can benefit equally from the many advantages of electronic invoicing."
Sending invoices by e-mail reduces the administrative effort involved in receiving an invoice: electronic invoices can be processed directly and do not have to be scanned first. In addition, automatic archiving and convenient searches are possible. Baumgärtner continues: "Ultimately, our customers will save time and money through the conversion. But there will also be environmental benefits."
Because invoices will no longer be sent by post, fewer resources in the form of paper will be used and mail transportation will also be eliminated. Resources will thus be conserved and the CO2 consumption that occurs during postal transport will also be avoided.
Further measures within the digitalization project will follow. This continues to be exciting development at Marbach.
Special situations require special actions. In view of current events, we are intensively engaged in the question of how we can support facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, etc., but also how we can protect our employees. In addition to door handle hooks for employees, which we manufacture ourselves at our Heilbronn site and which are already actively in use, we are currently producing special face shields which are used in hospitals.
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.
