Marbach forms joint venture with Masterwork in China

Published 15 May 2018

Marbach, which signed to form a joint venture in 2017 with Masterwork in China, stated that the preparations are in full swing to being operations this year.

Production at the Tianjin plant is scheduled to start in summer 2018. Assistant project manager Dominic Fischer "At the moment we are at the critical stage with intensive collaboration between Masterwork and Marbach. Our joint venture will be located in a large new MK building complex. We will have an area of approx. 1,600 m² available there.

“Of this area, 1,400 m² alone will be for our new production. The building has been completed and the Marbach area will be designed according to our requirements for a modern and efficient cutting-die production."

The production machines and required materials will arrive in Tianjin at the end of June, followed by immediate installation, so that Marbach can start production in summer as scheduled. 

Fischer said: "Of course we have expats in China who will be there and support us at the start of production and in the time immediately after. The local employees are already trained in advance in Heilbronn and in our subsidiary in Malaysia.

“And so we will be able to benefit from our experience of establishing subsidiaries in the USA and Malaysia. In addition, there will be regular visits from the project team to the location, so we will closely monitor the project in China to ensure a smooth start.

In addition to the new plant in China, Marbach has many locations around the globe and plans to further expand its international operations in the coming years.
