Karl Mayer Celebrates 75 Years

Germany-based textile machinery manufacturer Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH is celebrating its 75th anniversary.

The company was founded in 1937 by Karl Mayer Sr., who opened a mechanical workshop in Obertshausen, Germany, to produce turned parts. Ten years later, the company began producing warp knitting machines. Today, Karl Mayer remains a family-run company. Its business units include Warp Knitting, Warp Preparation, Technical Textiles and Parts and Components; and it has operations in Switzerland, Italy, the United Kingdom, Japan, China, Hong Kong and North America.

Karl Mayer recently held an anniversary celebration on Eltviller Aue, an island in the Rhine River that is owned by the Mayer family. The event included musical entertainment by the company's orchestra and a string quartet, a champagne reception, and a gala dinner. Approximately 600 guests from around the world — including textile manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and former employees — attended the event, which was inaugurated by Mayer family members, Suzanne Forker and Managing Director Fritz P. Mayer.
