India is an important market for Karl Mayer. This traditional textile country is currently the second most important sales region for its Warp Preparation Business Unit. Bearing this in mind, Karl Mayer has set up its first processing facilities in Ahmedabad, India.
The company’s site is located in Ahmedabad and covers an area of 3,700 m2, of which 2,100 m2 are taken up by the assembly hall. To ensure that the assembly work is of the highest quality, experienced local service technicians were trained to be responsible for quality assurance – a strategy that has already been successful in China. Between 12 and 14 workers were taken for the start of the new assembly operations.
Alexander Kistner , the Project Leader said that if they are really successful here, they can offer their customers all the advantages of local production, i.e. short delivery times, customer-specific solutions and favourable acquisition costs, without any of the tax disadvantages associated with imports.
A celebration was held on 27 May to mark the opening of the Karl Mayer factory in India. Representatives from the company and its local agent, A.T.E., took part in the celebrations. The newly developed DS EC2 machine was also premiered at the opening celebrations. These opening celebrations on a smaller scale will be followed by an open house event for Karl Mayer customer at the end of April 2015. In this respect, it is planned to present a warping machine, a wider MJ model, as well as some tricot machines.
By the end of this year, the Karl Mayer Academy India will move from Surat to Ahmedabad. By concentrating the service activities Karl Mayer hopes to achieve a lot of synergies.
The participants in the training courses can have a look at the machines produced there. On the other hand, Karl Mayer also benefits from the proximity to its customers.
In some sectors, such as direct beaming and sizing machines, Karl Mayer hold a market share of more than 90%.
