Marbach has been on an expansion course for years. In autumn, Marbach will open its new location in Michigan City, Indiana. The newly created facility in Michigan City will complement Marbach America's current resources at the Marbach site in Charlotte, NC. Preparations to open the new Marbach office are already in full swing.
Comprehensive product portfolio
The Michigan City facility manufactures an extensive portfolio of tools for the packaging industry. In addition to standard folding box tools, Marbach will manufacture high-tech tools on site such as the solidplate, the masterstrip|plate and the lightblanker system. Furthermore, tools for large-format corrugated plants such as the Mastercut 1.7 and 2.1 will be produced in Michigan City.
The establishment of a new location requires highly qualified employees. For this reason, not only the Marbach plant in Charlotte but also the headquarters in Heilbronn will support with personnel at the start of the new Marbach subsidiary. In addition, Marbach is actively looking for employees in the USA.
Fernando Pires, COO: "We recently presented the Marbach company together with the plans for our new production site at a local technical school. Visitor interest was great with participants coming from the CAD, CNC milling and laser cutting sectors. So, it was a perfect match for our requirements."
Moreover, the local economic council of the city of Michigan City is supporting the development of the new Marbach plant.
Experience Marbach Michigan City live
The construction has now been completed, as well as the installation of the latest machines – laser systems, water jet systems, milling machines. In weekly meetings, the project plan was coordinated and this ensured that Marbach in Michigan City could be officially opened in September. In addition to an open house, presentations and plant tours are being planned for customers, other interested parties as well as employees and their families. Visitors can thus experience the new Marbach company in Michigan City and its extensive possibilities live.
Marbach is already looking forward to the opening of drupa on 16 June 2020. The most important international trade fair for the printing industry, which takes place every four years, is a very special highlight for Marbach. In addition to its latest innovations, Marbach will present its extended portfolio of packaging services in Duesseldorf.
With its calibration tool package, Marbach ensures that its customers can quickly and easily re-adjust the components of their die-cutting machine for flat die-cutting of corrugated board. This results in a significant reduction of set-up and make-ready times.
Marbach started its training program one and a half years ago. Under the name "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Today Marbach offers practice-oriented training courses in all aspects of die-cutting packaging. The new training program for 2020 is now available
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies includes materials for the rubbering of cutting-dies. When it comes to rubber materials, the most important thing is that they are resistant and durable. When used in the right place in the cutting-die, they ensure that the paperboard material is ejected optimally during the cutting process. In addition, they ensure the stability of the nicks and thus provide smooth production processes in the die-cutting machine.
