Mayer Opens New Facility In South Carolina

Mayer and Cie., Germany, recently held a dedication ceremony to mark the opening of Mayer Circular
Knitting Machinery Inc. (MCK) in Columbia, S.C.

Rainer Mayer, owner and president, said MCK is the newest member of the Mayer Group of
companies, servicing the textile industry with sales, services and spare parts of
Mayer-manufactured-circular-knitting machines, both from the United States and Germany.

Jack King, vice president of Marketing, joined Mayer to cut the ribbon on the new facility.
He said that he and his staff were looking forward to working in the Columbia area.

Visitors at the grand opening were shown a variety of Mayer’s machines, including the Invovit
2.0 II double knit machine, with the new quick change; OVJA 1.6 E double knit jacquard with
individual needle selection; MV4-3.2 single-jersey four-needle structures; and the FV 2.0 rib, with
structure capability.

These machines were demonstrated in the showroom for customers during an open house held a
few weeks after the opening. King said the showroom will always be open to Mayers customers.
