1923 marked the beginning of the rich tradition of the enterprise. The twenty-five year old Karl Marbach founded a mechanical workshop inHeilbronn,Germany. He manufactured forged cutting tools for the shoe manufacturing industry. In 1926, many shoe manufacturers had to give up and were lost as clients, he began to work on a completely new die cutting technology: the steel rule die. This laid the foundation for an extraordinary course of success for the still young enterprise. In 1955 the son, Karl Marbach junior, followed in his father's footsteps and entered the company. At that time, there was an ever-growing demand on the steel rule die technology.
In the following years, the packaging industry grew to be the main customer. Soon the existing premises became too small. In May 1963, the company moved to a modern factory building in an industrial estate out of town. From 1968 also included rotary cutting dies on the product range. In the year 1972, they installed the first laser dieboard cutting system inEurope.
Meanwhile, both the turnover and the number of employees were increasing by two-digit figures: The company had grown to 130 employees in 1973. In the following years Marbach started internationalization.
The cooperations with internationally acting machine manufacturers – such as Bobst and Heidelberg– plus the companys good customer contact were the key factor for Marbachs success.
Today, the Marbach Group, employs 1,200 people worldwide. Besides numerous sites, Marbach has a large global network of partners and representatives. The name Marbach stands for quality, innovative power, wide range of services and ecological sustainability.
