Karl Mayer can look back on an excellent Techtextil.
Hagen Lotzmann, Sales Director at Karl Mayer Technische Textilien GmbH, says, “We are absolutely delighted with our participation in the fair. Together with JEC World, Techtextil once again proved to be one of the most important exhibitions for us.”
About 200 high-level conversations took place on the Karl Mayer stand. Most visitors came from Germany, followed by Turkey, Poland and India.
Many customers came to discuss projects, customer trials and machine purchases, and some sales contracts were even signed. The company also made some important new contacts. “Techtextil is a fantastic fair in terms of sales,” affirmed Bastian Fritsch, Karl Mayer’s Senior Sales Manager. “Many new clients came to visit our stand, including manufacturers from other technology sectors and the apparel industry, who are looking for new end-uses in the field of semi-technical textiles, for example. Many of them already have some new ideas in mind, and are looking for partners to implement them. With our machines and know-how, we were able to help all of them.”
One indication of the trend toward diversification is the fact that many of his clients operating in the conventional warp knitting sector were also exhibiting themselves. Fritsch’s many visitors came from India and Turkey, the regions for which he is responsible. However, the majority of the visitors to the Karl Mayer stand were Europeans.
The large number of visitors and their high level of interest confirmed the expectations of the fair of Jochen Schmidt, Managing Director of Karl Mayer Technische Textilien, The Managing Director says, “The demand for technical textiles is continuing to grow.”
