Marbach Asia Pacific in Kuala Lumpur organized once again Open House Days on 3rd and 4th October 2019. More than 100 visitors attended: brand owners, politicians and, of course, customers and interested parties from the packaging industry. All were able to convince themselves of the high-performance standards at the South-east Asian plant of the Marbach Group.
Markus Stegmann, Managing Director at Marbach Asia Pacific: "We are delighted that so many visitors came to our Oktoberfest. For the fourth time already, we have opened our doors to customers and interested parties. The feedback has been outstanding. Above all, the interest in our latest innovations has been very high. We can see from this that our customers in the Asian region, too, are increasingly demanding better performance in their packaging production."
Over a period of two days, Marbach Asia Pacific offered its visitors an exciting program in an Oktoberfest atmosphere. In addition to factory tours and presentations on the subject of "die-cutting technology for packaging", there were live demonstrations of Marbach tools. These took place on a BOBST Novacut 106ER, which is in the meantime the third BOBST die-cutting machine under the roof of Marbach Asia Pacific. Traditional Bavarian food and drinks ensured the physical well-being of the visitors. As a special highlight, all Marbach Asia Pacific employees dressed in traditional Bavarian dirndls and leather trousers.
Marbach has been offering training courses at its academy for almost 2 years. Under the motto "Marbach Academy. More knowledge. More skills." Marbach teaches important know-how about die-cutting packaging in practice-oriented training courses. Marbach held numerous training courses in 2019.
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.
Marbach is known for its manufacture of tools for the production of packaging. What is less well known is that Marbach also offers high-precision tools for a wide range of technical requirements.
Marbach has responded to the increasing demand for its die-cutting platen cleaning device by launching a revised version into the market. With this, it is now possible to clean machines where previously the Marbach machine could not be used due to lack of space.
