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 Die Supplies has expanded its creasing make-ready portfolio. From now on, the right counter die will be available for every requirement. So that nothing stands in the way of smooth packaging production and visually appealing creasing results. In addition to the simplest variant - the creasing matrix - Marbach offers rillma material and counter plates that can be individually adapted to the customer's requirements.
Marbach has become increasingly successful with its high-performance rotary die marbaspeed|r. Since the introduction of this tool, more than 5,000 dies have been sold.
Marbach is on course for further expansion. In addition to its activities in Mexico, China and the USA, Marbach is expanding its capacities in Poland. After two Polish plants were established in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce with a total of 175 employees, a new plant in Poznań with 50 employees has been added.
