We have participated in the TOP 100 innovation competition and received the TOP 100 seal 2023. This award is only given to the most innovative companies of the German medium-sized business sector.
The "Top 100" competition is based on a scientific selection process. On behalf of the organizer of the comparison 'compamedia', the innovation researcher Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke from the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration and his team examined medium-sized companies from a wide range of industries on the basis of more than 100 criteria from five categories.
We successfully participated in this selection process and is thus among the top 100 awarded companies since February 01, 2023.
Marbach Managing Director Bernd Klenk: "Innovations advance a company and ensure its sustainable success. This year we participated in the Top 100 competition for the first time. In the course of our 100-year company history, there have been numerous Marbach innovations, some of them became market standards. We have registered numerous patents and industrial designs over the decades. We are very pleased to be among the most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany according to the test criteria of the Top 100."
On June 23, all the top innovators of 2023 will come together in Augsburg for the award ceremony at the German SME Summit. There, Ranga Yogeshwar will also award Marbach as a Top 100 company and personally congratulate them for their success in the innovation competition.

The Marbach Group celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2023. Despite the now sizeable company of more than 1,600 employees worldwide, Marbach has never forgotten its roots. Because Marbach is aware that the roots of the company's success story are found in the people, the employees, who have supported the company through the last 100 years.
We have published a new whitepaper on our knowledge platform, the Experience Hub, on the topic of optimizing make-ready times.
In 2023, Marbach, whose exciting success story is unique, will be 100 years. But how did we become the corporate group we are today? One of the most important decisions here was certainly the investment in the very first CO2 laser system for cutting-die production in Europe. In the years that followed, laser technology became a cornerstone of the success of the Marbach Group – and pioneering for the entire die-cutting technology worldwide.
