Marbach expands further. After having opened die production facilities in the USA, Malaysia and China in the past years, Marbach will open a Marbach Die Supplies subsidiary in Mexico in January. From here Marbach will supply materials to Mexican and North American die and packaging manufacturers. In addition, training in the application of technologies will be offered. Marbach's goal is to support the Mexican market in its further development.
Jan Brunner, Head of Business Development at Marbach: "In Mexico, the packaging market is growing strongly. In recent years there has been a lack of investment in new technologies and machinery. This is currently undergoing radical change. Large investments are being made in die-cutting equipment, and Mexican companies want to produce to top international standards. For this they need our support. In the tool technology itself. But also in the area of training and consulting. We would like to assist the local market with our materials and our expertise in order to develop it further and to accompany our large Mexican customer base step by step into the future. But not only our direct customers need our support. We also want to raise the overall level of die-cutting technology by equipping die-manufacturers with better materials. And all this with adequate stock availability so as to avoid long delivery times and high freight costs."
In addition, Marbach wants to attract new customers who have not yet imported our tools. The new branch will simplify significantly the import of cutting-dies made by Marbach USA or Marbach Germany and thus considerably reduce the barriers to the import of tools.
Brunner continues: "We are looking forward to the opening of our new subsidiary and to be able to support the Mexican market with our tools, our materials and our know-how."
Marbach recently launched a new system under the name Embossing Register System IV. This allows embossing plates to be set up quickly and easily on embossing dies. With the Marbach system, users can save time when setting up the embossing dies and thus reduce machine downtimes.
Marbach has made a successful start to the new year with its Marbach Academy. In the first quarter of 2019, there were training courses on the subjects of paperboard and cigarette packaging as well as several individual training courses for customers.
Our US location in Charlotte is developing very positively. Following the start of production in 2012, Marbach America has grown into a stable revenue generator within the globally active Marbach Group. In order to be able to serve its customers even better, Marbach America has invested in a laser system of the latest generation. In March 2019 a laser system of the type mlas|compact-2 was installed at Marbach America.
Marbach is on course for expansion. After Marbach has founded subsidiaries in the USA, Malaysia, China and Mexico in the recent years, a second location in the USA will follow this summer. Since 2012 Marbach is already represented with a production site in Charlotte, North Carolina.
