Fi-Tech Inc. set to take over Mayer & Cie. in US

Fi-Tech Inc., representative of European equipment manufacturers in dyeing, finishing, and surface finishing, will take over as Mayer & Cie.’s sales and service representative in the US, from September 1, 2017, replacing Mayer Industries in US. Mayer & Cie. is a leading international manufacturer of circular knitting machines, headquartered in Germany.

From September 1, 2017, Fi-Tech will take over as Mayer & Cie.’s US sales, spare parts, and service representative. Preliminary talks have been under way for over two years. Initial contacts took place at the 2015 ITMA in Milan. The contracts were signed in Albstadt in mid-July 2017.

The new Mayer & Cie. representation has engaged with two senior members of the Mayer Industries circular knitting team to ensure knowledge and expertise are maintained for several years and to assure the smoothest possible transition.

Wolfgang Müller, sales director at Mayer & Cie. said, “We collaborated for a long time and successfully with Mayer Industries. Today, Mayer Industries’ main focus lies in another area. So now is the right time, especially with several employees in the circular knitting department leaving the company as retirees, to hand over our US representation to a well-established professional agency.”

“From our perspective, the US market has been very fragmented. There are unique challenges in the Los Angeles market, caused by consolidation and the success of imported equipment, especially from South Korea. Whereas in the traditional apparel markets on the East coast, customers have looked primarily to a domestic supply base and service. With our new sales representation and technical service structure, we look forward to once again actively competing in both markets,” Muller added.

In Mayer & Cie., Fi-Tech now has the first greige goods manufacturer in its portfolio.

Todd Bassett, co-owner and managing director of Fi-Tech said, “Mayer & Cie. is definitely a flagship in the list of our partners. We are impressed by the company’s leading position in both the technology and the market. Also its long history, its investment in its employees, all of that makes Mayer & Cie. something special.” (GK)
