New production site in Michigan City, Indiana, takes shape
Marbach has been on an expansion course for years. In the autumn, Marbach will open its new location in Michigan City, Indiana. The newly created facility in Michigan City will complement Marbach America's current resources at the site in Charlotte, NC. Preparations to open the new Marbach office are already in full swing.
The Michigan City facility manufactures an extensive portfolio of tools for the packaging industry. In addition to standard folding box tools, Marbach will manufacture high-tech tools on site such as the solidplate, the masterstrip|plate and the lightblanker system. Furthermore, tools for large-format corrugated equipment such as the Mastercut 1.7 and 2.1 will be produced in Michigan City.
The establishment of a new location requires highly qualified employees. For this reason, not only the Marbach plant in Charlotte but also the headquarters in Heilbronn will support with personnel at the start of the new Marbach subsidiary. In addition, Marbach is actively looking for employees in the USA.
Fernando Pires, COO, said, "We recently presented the Marbach company together with the plans for our new production site at a local technical school. Visitor interest was great with participants coming from the CAD, CNC milling and laser cutting sectors. So, it was a perfect match for our requirements."
Moreover, the local economic council of the city of Michigan City is supporting the development of the new Marbach plant.
