Warp preparation machinery producer Italy-based Karl Mayer Rotal S.r.l., a member of the Germany-based Karl Mayer Group, has unveiled a 3,100 square meter expansion at its production facility. Turnover for the company has quadrupled over the past five years, and the 2.7 million euro ($2.9 million) investment will strengthen the company’s international position as well as increase awareness of the Italy-based facility. Currently, 80-percent of the company’s profits are generated through international sales, but the company sees an uptick in domestic sales.
“With this investment, the Karl Mayer Group has confirmed its long-term commitment to the growth of Karl Mayer Rotal”, said Enzo Paoli, managing director.
The company held an open house to celebrate the expansion that was attended by 146 representatives from 50 companies.
“The open house event was extremely popular and sent out a clear message to the market” said Sales Director Guiseppe Moretti. “It showed Italian manufacturers, who have always been some of the most important customers for the textile industry, how seriously the Karl Mayer Group takes their requirements.”
