Karl Mayer records strong interest at ITM 2018

Leading warp knitting machinery manufacturer Karl Mayer travelled to Turkey last week, one of the company’s most important markets, to participate in the country’s leading textile machinery trade fair ITM 2018.

The company presented its latest developments and market trends from 14-17 April at the Istanbul Tüyap Fair and Congress Centre, at its newly designed booth. The company presented machines and technology presentations for the denim warp preparation sector and for the HKS machine range, which were as well attended as the decoration islands for displaying selected textile developments for different applications. “Especially the terry topic attracted the customers’ attention,” said Oliver Mathews, the Sales Director of Karl Mayer’s Business Unit Warp Knitting.

The stylish articles for the fashion sector were also a centre of attention. “The visitors looked at the various garments, they reached for the fabrics, touched and examined them,” commented Gabriela Schellner, Head of Textile Product Development. Ms Schellner added that she was very pleased with the success of her fabric experience concept.

The entire Karl Mayer exhibition team, including Ms Schellner, were constantly in demand. Nearly 250 qualified discussions were conducted at the company’s exhibition stand, with customers from all over the world, but mainly from the host country and from Iran.

The conversations showed a very good mood within the line of business, according to Bastian Fritsch, Senior Sales Manager of Karl Mayer’s Business Unit Warp Knitting. “The willingness to invest among our existing customers is high,” he noted. “I met all my customers, and had intensive discussions about specific projects, with legitimate hopes for contract conclusions.”
