Marbach has recently expanded its production capacity in Poland. In addition to two already established plants in Tarnowskie Góry and Kielce, another plant in Poznan has become part of the globally active Marbach Group since September 2019.
In total, Marbach employs close to 250 people in Poland. The new location has an area of approx. 1,350 m². The company Wykrojniki Polskie Sp.Z o.o., newly acquired by Marbach, has been restructured in recent months in accordance with Marbach guidelines and has made a successful start. Since 01.01.2020 the company has operated under the name Marbach Polska Sp. z o.o.
Managing Director of Marbach Poland, Pavol Kunstar: "In the last few months we have invested a lot in Poznan. Not only in machines, IT technology, but also in our employees."
A laser, a water jet system and various rule processing machines have strengthened production at the new location. IT hardware and software have been modernized and adapted to future requirements. Production optimization measures have been carried out on the basis of audits.
Kunstar continued: "Thanks to our investments, we have been able to adapt our work organization to the Marbach standard. Training directly on site, in our branches and at our main plant in Germany ensure we have highly qualified employees. By accessing Marbach materials, we have also managed to bring the quality of the tools manufactured in Poznan up to Marbach standards."
The three plants in Poland are an important pillar of the Marbach Group, which operates worldwide and employs a total of 1,500 people.

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.
