Due to our international position, and our forward-looking strategy, we are in the very fortunate position of being able to supply you without restrictions – even in today's currently difficult supply situation caused by the Corona pandemic and the Ukraine war.
Sales Manager Jan Brunner: “At the moment we are facing an unprecedented challenge: Many raw materials are becoming scarce, delivery times are getting longer and prices are rising in many areas. Our customers know us to be a reliable supplier of quality tools. Even during the difficult pandemic times, we have always been there for our customers, supplying them reliably and safely with our innovative technologies. Fortunately, we can say – in contrast to many other companies – that this will remain the case, in spite of the currently difficult supply situation for raw materials.”
So there will be no supply bottlenecks in the short and medium term. This is because in recent months we have restocked our warehouses with the most important raw materials for cutting-dies and increased capacities in all our plants. This is all the more important since we also supply the food and pharmaceutical industry with tools, and are therefore a vital part of the critical infrastructure.
Brunner continues: "Fortunately, we are not dependent on supplies from Russia or Ukraine. However, as with any die manufacturer, we also partly use birch wood from Russia for our dieboards. But here, too, we are on the safe side: thanks to our Marbach greenplate dieboard, we can more than compensate for uncertain supplies from Russia."
This is because 30% of the greenplate consists of the primary raw material birch, while 70% of the plate is made of secondary material from ecologically sustainable forestry from regional woods. This structure of the greenplate ensures that considerably less birch wood needs to be used for a cutting-die than for conventional tools. This means 3 times as many tools can be made with the same amount of birch material: ensuring a secure supply of cutting-dies in the future.
The Marbach Group, has existed for almost 100 years. But we are not only a successful company and world market leader in our field, but also a successful exhibitor at many international trade fairs.
We are a system supplier for all tools that a print shop needs for die-cutting packaging. In addition to die-cutting and stripping tools, we also produce blanking tools.
In the blanking process, individual packaging blanks are separated from each other after the die-cutting or stripping process. This process can be done manually or mechanically. Mechanical blanking has many advantages, making the use of a blanking tool profitable even for simple layouts and short runs.
The lightblanker offers an easy entry point into machine blanking.
We celebrate a great milestone in 2023: the company will turn 100. In the 1920s, Karl Marbach Senior had managed to found a small craftsman's business and to successfully lead it out of the world economic crisis with the help of a new product – steel rule dies – as well as some new customers. (More about this in the first part of this series: "100 Years Marbach. 1923 - 1927: The founding years.") But only a short time later, the next difficult years were already approaching the infant company, as another worldwide crisis was soon to begin with the Second World War.
We not only supply you with die-cutting, stripping and blanking tools for the production of folding cartons, but also support you in increasing your performance in packaging production. For this purpose, we have the "Marbach Performance Package" service in our portfolio.
