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 has been offering training courses at its academy for almost 2 years. Under the motto "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Marbach teaches important know-how about die-cutting packaging in practice-oriented training courses. Marbach held numerous training courses in 2019.
Marbach has recently expanded its production capacity in Poland. In addition to two already established plants in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce, another plant in Poznan has become part of the globally active Marbach Group since September 2019.
Marbach is known for its manufacture of tools for the production of packaging. What is less well known is that Marbach also offers high-precision tools for a wide range of technical requirements.
Marbach has responded to the increasing demand for its die-cutting platen cleaning device by launching a revised version into the market. With this, it is now possible to clean machines where previously the Marbach machine could not be used due to lack of space.
