Asian expansion for KM.ON

The Managing Directors of the KM.ON Antonia Gottschalk and Maximilian Kürig. © Karl MayerKarl Mayer, a leading German warp knitting machinery manufacturer, is continuing along its path of digitisation, and is focusing on expansion and globalisation. From June 2019 onwards, KM.ON will be present in key markets with subsidiaries in China and Hong Kong.

This software start-up offers a broad portfolio of digital solutions under the KM.ON brand. The company was set up in Frankfurt in 2017 as the Karl Mayer Digital Factory, and now operates under the uniform name of KM.ON GmbH.

In addition to Warp Knitting, Warp Preparation and Technical Textiles, KMO.ON is also one of Karl Mayer’s business units and has a corresponding focus. "With this international setup, we are following Karl Mayer's strategy of being close to our customers. Our local presences enable us to focus our solutions for important sales regions even more specifically on the particular requirements of our customers there,” explained Antonia Gottschalk, who heads KM.ON, together with Maximilian Kürig.

Both Managing Directors expect that globalisation will also provide impulses for the entire product portfolio. “The adaptation rate of software and digital solutions is enormous here. The heart of digitisation is beating strongly in China. With these new locations, we have our finger firmly on the pulse of a period of great change,” said Maximilian Kürig.

KM.ON was set up on 3 November 2017 and is based in Frankfurt. The aim of this company is to develop new digital solutions rapidly and flexibly, with perceptible added value for its customers. The company employs a team of software specialists and technology experts, who can rely on the solid financial base, the know-how, and the capacity of the Karl Mayer Group.
