KARL MAYER will be presenting its latest innovations at ITMA ASIA + CITME, which will be held from 15 to 19 October 2018. This global player is using its latest developments to tackle the changes taking place in the world today.
“The mega trends of digitalisation and sustainability are changing the world as we know it. As an innovative global market leader, we see these changes as an opportunity for our customers. At ITMA ASIA+ CITME, we will be showing our visitors how KARL MAYER is implementing these strategic themes, digitalisation and sustainability by delivering integrated solutions offering a wide range of advantages,” said KARL MAYER’s Managing Director, Arno Gärtner.
KARL MAYER can be found in the Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai on stand B 11, hall 4, where a new umbrella brand will be launched, offering innovative digital solutions known as the KARL MAYER Digital Factory, which was introduced last year. A look at KARL MAYER’s CLEANER.PRODUCTIONS will also be on the cards. Other highlights include a performance show of the latest generation of machines, a fashion show showcasing decorative, trendsetting fabrics, and a presentation of the Technical Textiles centre of excellence. An in-house show at KARL MAYER (CHINA) in Changzhzou will also be held at the same time as the fair, scheduled for 15 to 18 October.
Development of the best digital solutions
As a pioneer in textile machinery building, KARL MAYER is following a broad digitisation strategy. An important element of this strategy is to support its customers with new digital solutions at a market leader level.
The initiatives for this strategy are being coordinated by Antonia Gottschalk, the Head of Digitisation. The expertise for doing this is based on an efficient network. Since March 2018, KARL MAYER has been part of ADAMOS, an alliance made up of industrial and software companies. At the end of 2017, KARL MAYER also set up its own start-up company in Frankfurt, known as the Digital Factory, for developing new, innovative digital business models, products and services. In future, these will be combined under a new umbrella brand, which is being launched at ITMA ASIA + CITMA. “Management is focusing on the KM Digital Factory. Together with our involvement in ADAMOS, the new company will enable us to quickly make the best digital solutions available for delivering maximum benefit to our customers,” says Arno Gärtner.
