Karl Mayer to expand footprints, launches 1st ML 46-210

It was a great day for Zenith Silk Mills Pvt Ltd in Surat, when the first-ever Karl Mayer's Multibar Lace machine, model ML 46 210" in India was kicked off to a start by Vasantbhai Jariwala, President of the Zenith Group recently in Surat. The event acquired a special importance since the sophisticated lace machine was launched in the presence of Arno K H Gartner, CEO, Oliver Mathews, VP (Sales & Marketing), Bastian Fritsch, Senior Sales Manager, all of Karl Mayer, Germany and Kevin Socha, MD of Karl Mayer (HK) Ltd; and also Anuj Bhagwati, MD and GV Aras, Director of A.T.E. Enterprises Pvt Ltd. Zenith Group, with the presence of Paresh Jariwala and Nirav Jariwala, Directors, being the first to acquire such a high-end machine, was at the centre of attraction.
It was a pride of moment for Karl Mayer, when its CEO Arno Gartner, announced his company's intention to increase its footprints in India by launching a 100% subsidiary in Ahmedabad. Said Gartner: "Looking at the great scope of warp knitting in India in the last 2 years, we have now decided to have our own set-up in Ahmedabad, which will be officially opened tomorrow".
Anuj Bhagwati spoke about the partnership of A.T.E. with Karl Mayer and also the Zenith Group. "In India warp knitting has a long way to go, but still we have made good progress, though it cannot be compared with China. There are about 300 warp knitting machines functioning India, most of it in Surat".
Oliver Mathews gave a presentation of the ML 46 210" lace machine, and explained how it has created the right conditions for increasing the production output by as much as 50%. The ML series is one of KARL MAYER's best-selling product ranges. The successful Multibar Lace machines were launched onto the market for the first time at the beginning of 2011, and demand for them has been extremely high.
Above all, the current trend for decorating garments with lace, which can be seen in Asia in particular, has stimulated demand for the Multibar Lace machines. The ML 46, with its high number of guide bars, has a width of 210" and is particularly interesting for producing laces for saris and other dress materials for women. The ML 46 comprises guide bars arranged in eleven shog lines, a warp beam stand, a creel on top, and the 13 D batching unit.
Said Oliver Mathews: "Karl Mayer has been working in association with A.T.E. Group in India for the last 40 years or so,  and in 2009, it launched its after-sales service. In 2012, Karl Mayer introduced its Academy in Surat to train technicians to operate their warp knitting mahcines. This has been a very successful move".
