Knitting machine manufacturer Mayer & Cie. (MCT) delivered the 70,000th circular knitting machine in the company’s 110 year history.

According to a MCT press release, an FV 2.0 double jersey machine was delivered to knitwear manufacturer Speidel GmbH, which produces high-quality single jersey and fine rib lingerie.

“Most of the knits are manufactured in body widths to make it optimally comfortable to wear and for years and Speidel has ordered the knitting machines it needs solely from Mayer & Cie,” it added.

“We feel greatly honoured that the 70,000th Mayer & Cie. knitting machine was supplied to us,” said Hans-Jürgen Speidel, production manager at Speidel GmbH, who is in-charge of nearly 130 knitting machines.

Speidel knits between 90 and 100 tons of material per month, all for its own lingerie product lines, so the main focus, along with reliable machine performance is on constant high quality of the knitwear.

Speidel mostly uses single jersey and fine rib machines that produce circular knitted fabric in standard body widths of between 12 and 20 inches using a variety of blended yarn like cotton-Modal and cotton-Elastan.

“Less familiar materials like bamboo or a yarn based on algae also find their way via the knitting machine into the company’s latest lingerie collection,” MCT informed.

Speidel has nearly doubled the number of its knitting machines in the last 15 years and mainly uses MV 4-3.2 II and the FV 2.0 models, both of which are highly productive machines for the lingerie sector.

“We appreciate the consistently high quality, the high level of machinery expertise and the continuity we can be sure of at Mayer & Cie,” Albert Mauz, manager of Speidel noted.

He added, “Our special production requirements are reliably taken into consideration and implemented at the development stage at Mayer & Cie.” (AR)
