Marbach, is globally positioned and possesses 20 subsidiaries worldwide. One of them is located in Tarnowsky Gory, Poland. There, Marbach has doubled its production capacity in recent months.
Since 2009, Marbach Budowa Form SP.Z.o.o. (thermoforming tools) and Marbach Polska SP.Z.o.o. (cutting-dies) were housed under one roof at Marbach's location at Tarnowsky Gory. At that time, a new building was necessary in order to be able to cover increasing demand from the Polish market. After expansion in 2014, the building, occupied since 2009, was bursting at the seams again. This made an expansion of the production area essential. With increasing sales and needing to continue to supply customers with quality tools as usual, Marbach urgently had to expand its production capacities. Therefore, investments were made in a new building.
Managing Director Marbach Werkzeugbau, Markus Britsch: "The continuously increasing demand for tools and components has required an expansion of the production capacities at the Tarnowsky Gory location. So, a second production and office building was built directly next to the already existing building. Twice as much space is now therefore available for both tool manufacturing and die-cutting. After just under a year of construction, the time has come: the new building is now ready and will be occupied by the tool manufacturing department in November 2021. In this context, we have also further optimized processes and material flow. The site in Tarnowsky Gory now employs more than 180 people with the two thermoforming and cutting-die divisions."
In addition to the Tarnowsky Gory location, the Marbach Group has two other sites in Poland.
In 1923, the Marbach company began as a 3-man workshop in Heilbronn, Baden-Württemberg. 100 years later, the small craftsman business has become a global market leader operating worldwide. Today, the Marbach Group, with its 1,600 employees around the world, is a key partner for the global packaging industry.
Such a long company history cannot be taken for granted – in Germany only a little more than 1% of the companies ever reach 100 years. The fact that we have managed to achieve this, is due to many different factors.
Our story reads like an exciting novel.
In addition to materials for packaging manufacturers, our division Marbach Die Supplies also supplies equipment for the die-cutting process. This includes two mobile workbenches mbench|smart and mbench|pro. These are distinguished by their flexible application possibilities.
The workbenches in the mbench series are not only equipped with smooth-running heavy-duty wheels for flexible use, but also offer an ideal work surface, storage space for tools and materials, as well as the option of fitting them with suitable hand tools. This means that tools can be repaired and processed in a minimum of space.
With the Marbach lower pin unit, we have a tool on the market that is mainly used for jobs where the requirements for waste-free die-cut blanks are very high. This is because waste is stripped in an especially reliable way with the lower pin unit in these applications.
Lower pin units are used in the stripping station of a die-cutting machine. They are particularly useful when very small waste parts have to be stripped and when maximum reliability is required during stripping.
For us, an eventful but also successful year is coming to an end. Right at the beginning of the year, the war in Ukraine caused market turbulence and triggered a procurement crisis. We met these challenges with good planning and inventory management.
For many years now, we have traditionally donated 10,000 € to aid projects at Christmas under the motto "Donations instead of gifts". This year, due to the difficult situation in Ukraine, the management of Marbach decided to donate the entire amount to aid projects in connection with the war in Ukraine.
