Albstadt-based circular knitting machine manufacturer Mayer & Cie. is exhibiting again this year at the Techtextil trade fair, which takes place next month in Frankfurt. At the event that focuses on innovative textile applications, Mayer & Cie. will demonstrate the variety of opportunities that circular knitting machines can offer.
Circular knitting has become more important in the manufacture of mattress covers in the recent years, with over half of the covers made of fabrics produced on circular knitting machines – material that is both elastic and can retain its shape. Another established area in which circular knitting machines are used is to make covers for upholstered furniture.
Mayer & Cie. is a leading international manufacturer of circular knitting machines. The company manufactures the entire range of machines required for making modern textiles. Fabrics for home textiles, sportswear, nightwear and swimwear, seat covers, underwear and technical uses can be made on the company’s knitting machines.
Founded in 1905, Mayer & Cie. generated sales of EUR 105 million in 2016 with about 500 employees worldwide, according to preliminary figures. In addition to its headquarters in Albstadt, Germany, and subsidiaries in China and the Czech Republic, sales partners in around 80 countries represent Mayer & Cie.
