With this new business, the Karl Mayer Group wants to build up further-reaching digital competences with an agile environment. The main aim is a fast and flexible development of new digital solutions, offering perceptible added value for the customers. The targeted business models, products and services – as part of Karl Mayer’s digitisation strategy – are meant to support the clients in their markets.

“In the digital world, too, only those offers are successful which can best satisfy the consumer demands. This is the reason why we consistently focus on customer benefits, and combine our long-standing experience as leading textile machinery manufacturer with new, digital know-how,” said Antonia Gottschalk, Head of Digitisation at Karl Mayer, and Managing Director of Karl Mayer Digital Factory.

The new company’s capacities are also intended to complement the ongoing and planned activities in Karl Mayer’s core organisation.

With more than 2,500 employees worldwide, the international organisation produces in its main markets. Today the company has subsidiaries in the USA, in India, Italy, Hong Kong, Japan, China and Switzerland, as well as agencies all over the world.

“The German family-run enterprise was set up in 1937 and since then financial independence and economic sustainability have always been important aspects of our corporate strategy. As long-standing and reliable partner with many years of professional experience and high-quality level in all areas, Karl Mayer supports the competitiveness of its customers and business partners,” the company reports.
