On a visit to the Karl Mayer plant in Germany, Indian minister of state for textiles Ajay Tamta learnt about the latest state-of-the-art textile machineries. With successful business activities in India, Karl Mayer is one of the most important textile machinery builders for the knitwear industry. India's textile industry is on a clear growth course.

The minister was accompanied by Anant Kumar Singh, secretary government of India, ministry of textiles and other delegates from the ministry and consulate general.

"Karl Mayer has been working with Indian textile companies for many years. India is an important market for us," Dr Helmut Preßl, CFO, said welcoming the guests.

At the plant, the delegates got insight about the solutions for sustainability such as the Low Energy Option (LEO), which ensures significant energy savings during machine operation, and the innovative sizing machine Prosize, which requires considerably less sizing agent than conventional equivalent types. It was an opportunity to know in-depth about the innovative textiles produced on the Karl Mayer machines in a most efficient way and in wide-ranging designs.

In 2014 Karl Mayer opened its own plant in Ahmedabad, and started its own value creation in the Indian market. Today, Karl Mayer with roughly 80 highly qualified staff members and with its longstanding experienced regional agent ATE is successfully operating on site. For its business planning until 2023, the enterprise expects a continuing, above-average growth rate. The desired success should especially be ensured by new technologies, which do not only support improvements in productivity but also the change of the textile industry to sustainability. (RR)
