Mayer & Cie. (MCT) has completed two extensive projects in Uzbekistan and is currently manufacturing several dozen machines bound for the country. The most frequently ordered machine is the Relanit 3.2 HS. “Our Relanit machines are real cotton specialists that have proved their worth over the past three decades. The Relanit 3.2 HS is the youngest member of the family and one of the most productive machines in the market,” explained Schramm.

With a diameter of 30 inches, the high-performance machine reaches speeds of up to 50 rpm as it knits cotton yarn. The Relanit 3.2 HS is reliable and fail-safe even when handling difficult or, of course, elastomer yarns. “Our customers know that investing in a Relanit machine is guaranteed to pay swift and lasting dividends,” continued Schramm.

In Uzbekistan, strengthening the domestic textiles industry is high on the political agenda. President Shavkat Mirziyoyev’s government has set itself the target of increasingly keeping the textiles chain in the country. The landlocked Central Asian state is an important cotton-growing country, producing around three and a half million tonnes a year.

At present, about one million tonnes, or around 30%, is exported. By 2020, however, the proportion of raw cotton sold to other countries is to be reduced to 10%. The target for finished yarn, of which exports amount to about 60%, is much the same. By 2020, yarn is to be processed entirely in Uzbekistan.

“For us as knitting machine manufacturers that is very good news,” commented Timo Schramm, MCT’s Regional Sales Manager responsible for Uzbekistan. “The objective of increasing capacities across the entire textiles chain from spinning to manufacturing suits us very well.” Schramm says the number of government projects alone aimed at achieving these targets is 132.

MCT presented at this year’s CAITME, held from 9 to 11 September in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. The company exhibited at the trade show jointly with MCT’s local representative Textile Technologies & Service (TTS) under the aegis of Ana Tsoy. Interested customers found the Mayer team with an info stand at the TTS booth.
