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 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.
With its innovation pure edge Marbach ensures satisfaction of packaging manufacturers and brand owners. This technology stands for beautiful visible edges for corrugated board packaging and so for sales-boosting presentation of branded products at the point of sale. In addition, pure edge impresses with its durability and permanently consistent die-cutting results.
