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.
An exciting year comes to an end for Marbach. For many years now it has been Marbach's tradition to make donations to charities instead of giving presents to customers at Christmas. When selecting the recipients, it is important to the Marbach management to divide money between internationally renowned and regionally respected institutions. This year Marbach has donated 8,000 euros to Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe e.V. and has also supported Offene Hilfen gGmbH Heilbronn with a donation of 2,000 euros.
Through its Marbach Die Supplies & Automation (MDS&A) division, Marbach sells machines to die-makers. The currently most successful laser system in Marbach's portfolio is the mlas|compact-2.
Marbach is known for its solutions designed to meet all requirements. For applications in the pharmaceutical sector, Marbach has specific tools in its portfolio that have been specially designed for this field of application.
