Mayer & Cie reaches highest order entry in 30 years

Mayer & Cie, Albstadt based knitting machine manufacturer’s order entry in 2nd quarter of 2016 has reached the highest in around 30 years. The company expects to manufacture about 1,500 machines majorly for international customers by the year’s end. China, followed by India and Turkey are by far the largest markets.

“Looking at our order entry since 1 January 2016, the current level is one that we last reached in the boom years at the end of the 1990s,” said Wolfgang Muller, sales director at Mayer & Cie.

“There is a definite trend toward high quality machines. It was already apparent at the 2015 international textile machinery fair in Milan and it runs across the entire market from Bangladesh to the United States. And the high quality segment, such as double jersey or jacquard machines, has always been our strong point,” added Muller.

“Along with the increasing importance of quality more is being produced in the traditional textile markets, which is where Mayer & Cie is very well established,” Muller explained.

In 2015 the company has sold around 1,300 machines most of them were high quality jacquard and double jersey machines. China accounted the highest orders followed by India and Turkey. More distant regions with a long textile industry tradition especially Central and South America had also been placing more orders.

“That is remarkable in as much as labour costs have risen significantly there. Ready-made goods in China are on the decline once more, but fabric manufacture is a different story,” Muller concluded. (NA)
