Karl Mayer China recently celebrated its 25th anniversary at Changzhou, China. The entire workforce and management representatives from Germany, Hong Kong, and Japan – including CEO Arno Gartner – all took part in the festivities. Karl Mayer is a technology and market leader as well as driving force for innovations in textile machinery building.

In 2008, Karl Mayer China moved to a new plant with a surface area of 170,000 square metres. In 2011, the production of knitting machines was expanded to include the manufacture of warp preparation equipment and in the following year, production was expanded again.

The latest but no less important milestone in the company’s history was the establishment of KM.ON China, a subsidiary of Karl Mayer’s software start-up KM.ON – in June 2019. Karl Mayer China currently employs around 800 people in Changzhou. Following a ten-year economic boom, the company achieved the best results in its history in 2018. With its proximity to the main market – around 70 per cent of warp-knitted textiles are produced in China – it is an important member of the group, according to Karl Mayer.

In order to operate at an even closer proximity to customers in the main Chinese market, the significance of the subsidiary in Changzhou will continue to grow. Over the past ten years, an enormous capacity for textile production has been established in China. At the moment, however, China’s geopolitical situation has led to slow growth. Karl Mayer must be able to adapt flexibly to this situation.

“As the market leader, we want to be the first to recognise market developments and respond with more innovative solutions offering maximum customer benefit based on buyers’ requirements”, Gärtner said.

In order to always be one step ahead, Karl Mayer China will assume more responsibility for its customers and for solutions, and KM.ON’s activities will be further expanded.
