Technical Textiles

Techtextil has been one of the most important trade fairs for the technical textiles industry since 1986, with last week’s Frankfurt show being the 20th edition. The organiser, Messe Frankfurt, marked the occasion by honouring the founding exhibitors at a ceremony. The festive get-together took place on 24 April 2024 in Hall 9 and brought together a number of companies with a long tradition, including the Karl Mayer Group.

With the award, Messe Frankfurt is honouring the commitment of exhibitor pioneers in the technical textiles industry. "We celebrate the past, the present and the future of this dynamic industry with you," reads the plaque, which was presented by Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt, and Sabine Scharrer, Director Techtextil.

Jochen Schmidt, General Manager of Karl Mayer Technical Textiles, appreciates being among those honoured. "We are delighted to have been involved right from the start and to have laid the foundations for the success of the trade fair. Techtextil is also today still an important platform for us to present our innovations and meet our customers."

The Karl Mayer Group looks back on a successful Techtextil 2024 and is already looking forward to the next edition.
