An India delegation visited Development Centre of Karl Mayer, the leading German warp knitting machinery manufacturer, to know more about the products and the manufacturing processes of one of the most prominent textile machinery suppliers in the knitwear industry.
The delegates comprised of Minister of State for Textiles Ajay Tamta; Anant Kumar Singh, Secretary, Government of India; and other Government and Ministry of Textiles officials.
A presentation on different machines and their end-uses was made at Karl Mayer’s headquarters in Obertshausen last week to update the visiting delegation about the innovative manufacturing methods of the company.
The high output of the machines and top quality of the fabric produced by the company on its machines impressed the visitors, who realised that the will to learn and cooperate with each other is needed for the growth of Indian textiles and clothing industry.
Karl Mayer, which sees India as an important market for it, discussed several sustainability issues such as energy consumption by the machines during the production process.
The company has been successfully operating its business activities in India for past many years. It established its own manufacturing plant in Ahmedabad in Gujarat in 2014. Karl Mayer machines are efficient in producing wide-ranging designs and innovative textiles; for example, elastic and rigid lingerie articles or fabrics for activewear and clothing.
