On the 5th of July 2019 the Family Day took place for the 6th time at Marbach. The theme was "Beach Party - it's summertime". Almost 400 employees and their families gathered on the company premises and celebrated together in bright sunshine.
Peter Marbach, managing director of Marbach: "This year's Family Day was an absolute success. After the weather welcomed us with a short but intensive shower at the last event in 2017, Petrus was kinder to us this time". Almost than 1,300 visitors came to the company premises. More than at any Family Day before. For all those who wanted to know what Marbach does or where family members spend their everyday working lives, there were company tours at the beginning of the event.
The whole venue was decorated in keeping with the summer motto. But not only that. Tina Dost, Marketing Manager at Marbach: "This time we came up with something very special for our guests. In order to get into the right mood, everyone was given a chain of flowers and sunglasses when they entered the premises. And in culinary terms, we were also prepared for the summer theme. For example, we had delicious ice cream from the region and exotic cocktails. Of course, we also had the obligatory French fries, which Peter Marbach fried as in all previous times. "It's a tradition for us that our managers entertain their employees at the Family Day," says Marbach. "Because with the Family Day we want to thank all our employees for their good work and commitment. Every single one of them contributes to the success of our company. I always work the first shift at the French fries myself. It's fun and you have the opportunity to talk to the employees."
And the little guests were also well taken care of. The children could have make-up applied at the Kindersolbad stand, an activity course of Böckingen sports park demanded lots of agility and of course there was also a bouncy castle which could not be missing. Moreover there was a photo box, but a DJ accompanied the whole event with summer beats and provided music for a well-filled dance floor towards evening.
Dost: "For us it was an entirely successful event. All employees and their families had a good time, enjoyed the sun and the delicious food. It's nice to see how our concept was so well received by everyone. We are already looking forward to our next Family Day."
With its stripping technologies, Marbach has an extensive portfolio on the market for smooth processes and waste-free stripping. An important product, and the basic requirement for a stable stripping process, is the precision set-up aid marbapoint. The male and female strippers are precisely positioned in relation to each other. The marbapoint is therefore a simple and cost-effective way to optimize the setup process.
Marbach is exhibiting - as in previous years - at the FachPack in Nuremberg at the end of September. For Marbach, this coming together of the packaging industry has become an established part of the exhibition year.
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.
