The internationally operating die-making company Marbach is known for it’s service and consulting competence. JTI US Holdings based in Miami, Florida, a subsidiary of Japan Tobacco International, one of the world's largest tobacco companies produces well-known brands including Winston and Camel cigarettes, is very pleased with Marbach America’s team, based in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Fernando Pires, Chief Operating Officer of Marbach America: "JTI had asked us for our assistance. We should support the qualification of the prospective JTI supplier Padilla based in the Dominican Republic. Our task was to help qualify Padilla in effort to secure orders from JTI. In the course of intensive support for the project and in close consultation with JTI and Padilla, we succeeded in training Padilla quickly and efficiently and prepared them optimally for the new challenges."
Padilla, a leading packaging manufacturer in the Caribbean, was approached by JTI to produce cigarette packaging that meets the tobacco company's high standards and strict specifications in terms of packaging quality, performance speed and security features. It was also required to get Padilla qualified in a very quick timeframe to be ready for the start up of new packaging lines at the JTI factory.
Eric Brooks, JTI Technical Print Manager for the Americas: "I would like to thank Marbach for their great support and the team effort towards this important project. The entire Marbach team has done a very good job. The trainings were target-oriented and efficient. The technical support before, during and after the trainings has more than exceeded our expectations. Already after a short time the first 10’s and 20’s cigarette boxes were successfully produced at Padilla. We couldn’t have done this without the Marbach team."
Due to its extensive portfolio, which includes innovative die-cutting technologies and tools as well as numerous services around packaging, Marbach is able to support both packaging manufacturers and brand owners in their daily challenges.
Marbach Die Supplies includes in its portfolio a very special hand tool for simple and fast insertion of waste nicks into cutting rules: the marbanick|2+. This is the follow-on development of the long-standing and time-proven marbanick and marbanick|2.
Marbach has been participating in the world's largest exhibition for the packaging industry, drupa, since 1977. At the upcoming drupa in 2 weeks, from April 20-23, Marbach will again be represented with a booth - but this time virtually. Because of the Corona pandemic, this year's exhibition will take place exclusively online. On the 4 days of the fair, however, everything will center on packaging online.
Marbach Die Supplies has the right solution for every requirement in its portfolio. In the counter plate sector, Marbach offers a comprehensive portfolio of materials for diemakers. From simple creasing matrixes to cutting plates for the production of steel counter plates. However, the top seller in counter materials has remained the same for years: rillma+. But what makes this material so popular?
Marbach is repositioning itself for the future. The company with its more than 20 locations worldwide, has evaluated its position during a one-year-long strategy project. The results are impressive: a new sales structure, the introduction of "Production Centers of Excellence" and new industry management reorganization for the most important target markets: folding carton and corrugated board.
