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."
Marbach is already looking forward to the opening of drupa on 16 June 2020. The most important international trade fair for the printing industry, which takes place every four years, is a very special highlight for Marbach. In addition to its latest innovations, Marbach will present its extended portfolio of packaging services in Duesseldorf.
With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Marbach started its training program one and a half years ago. Under the name "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Today Marbach offers practice-oriented training courses in all aspects of die-cutting packaging. The new training program for 2020 is now available
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies includes materials for the rubbering of cutting-dies. When it comes to rubber materials, the most important thing is that they are resistant and durable. When used in the right place in the cutting-die, they ensure that the paperboard material is ejected optimally during the cutting process. In addition, they ensure the stability of the nicks and thus provide smooth production processes in the die-cutting machine.
