Marbach Masterwork (Tianjin) Die Cutting Tools Co., Ltd. has now optimized its organization in order to be able to serve Chinese customers even more effectively. Since May, Louis Lu Ji has also been the new General Manager of the company.
Louis Lu Ji is based in the packaging and processing industry. He holds a bachelor's degree from the Beijing Institute of Printing and an MBA from Vlerick Business School in Belgium.

Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "We are very proud that we were able to attract an industry insider such as Louis Lu Ji. With his experience in the industry, but also in business management, he will quickly advance the - still very young - joint venture. We are all very confident that Louis and his team will be able to open up the Chinese market quickly and be successful in China."
In the area of sales, the joint venture of Marbach and Masterwork relies mainly on the expertise of experienced Chinese sales persons.
