Since Marbach has restructured its division „Materials for the production of cutting-dies“ and has recently been renamed Marbach Die Supplies, the positive market acceptance has been very well received at Marbach. The extended portfolio has generated a positive mood with Marbach customers. Because as one of the main material suppliers in Germany, Marbach is the only company that is able to test its products in advance in its own production units and on the in-house die-cutting machine.
Director Business Development, Jan Brunner: “Many of our customers appreciate the fact that we also produce cutting-dies ourselves and therefore know exactly what we are talking about. Because the materials we offer have been tested extensively in our own production. Moreover, we exclusively offer our own materials. For example our rule series with the cutting rules mhard, msoft, mpower and the creasing rule mcrease are only available at Marbach. Also the rubber material flexpower. Own innovations such as the marbanick or easyfix round off our unique portfolio.”
Marbach has become known in the market over the years with this approach. And is very successful with it. The expansion of the portfolio takes Marbach yet one step further. Because Marbach supplies its customers even more comprehensively. Ranging from materials for die-boards to rubber and Marbach cutting rules and various tools for the die-cutting production. Marbach customers like this. And reward Marbach as a result. This becomes more than clear when looking at the sales figures of Marbach Die Supplies.
Marbach founded a new branch in Tianjin together with the machine manufacturer Masterwork in the summer of 2018. Cutting-dies for the Chinese folding box industry are mainly manufactured at this location. A few months later, Marbach started its new materials subsidiary in Mexico. A production facility in the USA will follow in the summer of 2019. At Marbach all signs point to expansion.
Since drupa 2016 Marbach has had digital zone levelling in its portfolio. Almost 400 machines have been equipped with a DZL|plate in the past 3 years. And the number is increasing every day.
Marbach is already involved in its planning for the most important international trade fair for the printing industry: drupa 2020. And now there is only 1 year left until drupa opens its doors again. The last drupa was very special for Marbach: with the number of visitors reaching record levels. No previous drupa had more visitors at the Marbach stand than in 2016.
Marbach has continuously expanded its services in the past year. The newest member of the Marbach service family is the Marbach Performance Boost package. By which, Marbach supports its consulting service which makes its own process know-how available to its customers and thereby significantly increasing their productivity during the die-cutting process.
