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 now provides on its new Experience Hub exclusive content and information for interested parties from the packaging industry. In addition to videos, animations and digital brochures, visitors of this page can also download white papers on important industry-specific topics and make direct appointments with a Marbach contact person. Marbach specialists will answer questions via email, chat or phone.
Once again this year Marbach will follow in a long-established tradition: Marbach will make Christmas donations to two aid projects under the motto “donations instead of presents”. When selecting the recipients of the donations, it has been important to the Marbach Management to split the money between internationally well-known and regionally respected institutions. This year, Marbach has donated 7,000 Euro to "Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V." and an additional donation of 3,000 Euro to the "Tafeln Heilbronn" (a food distribution charity). Due to the current pandemic situation, however, the handover of the donations was different than usual this year. One of the donations was handed over online, the other with face masks and at a distance.
In November Marbach participated in the new virtual trade show ConneXion. During the 4 weeks of the ConneXion exhibition large numbers of visitors informed themselves about news in the packaging industry. Marbach presented its latest new developments for more performance in packaging production.
Marbach is represented at its Heilbronn headquarters by two divisions: Die Cutting Technology and Thermoforming Tool Manufacturing. But a product which directly connects these two divisions is SR technology (steel rule technology). This is because the Die Cutting Technology division supplies the Thermoforming Tool manufacturing division, and many other thermoforming manufacturers worldwide, with special steel-rule dies.
