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.
Marbach has added a new blanking tool to its product range. The alublanker is, as its name suggests, made of aluminum and completely CNC-milled. One of the first customers to use the alublanker is Marbach's long-standing partner MPS in Obersulm - a company of the Consumer Packaging Business of the WestRock Group. The Obersulm site produces high-quality folding cartons for the international perfume and cosmetics industry.
Marbach has published a new whitepaper for tobacco applications on its knowledge platform, the Experience Hub.
Marbach provides solutions to ensure top performance for its customers. In order to make packaging more attractive and to visually highlight individual elements of packing, the embellishment process of embossing is often used. As an eye-catcher, it increases the impact of a package at the point of sale. This then has a sales-promoting effect for the packaged product. If the embossing process is not integrated into the die-cutting process but is carried out separately, this is known as embossing and die-cutting in two passes. This is more time-consuming than an embossing process integrated into the die-cutting process. But here, too, set-up times can be minimized.
The portfolio of Marbach Die Supplies (MDS) includes machines, equipment and materials for diemaking. In particular, MDS has expanded its range of manual devices in recent months. Among the most popular of these is the mcut|multi multifunctional cutting tool. It cuts rule materials quickly and without deformation. Plastika Mostar in Slovenia is already using mcut|multi and is very impressed.
