The KARL MAYER GROUP - An international group with German roots.

We set trends in textile machinery building and drive the field of digital solutions. With a dense network of 19 subsidiaries and qualified agencies, we are present in over 90 countries worldwide. And last but not least, we are a family business with a long tradition. The foundation stone for the KARL MAYER GROUP was laid in 1937.

Our company was first established in 1937 and since then, it has developed into a globally successful group of companies.

The KARL MAYER Group’s history is characterised by visionary strength, entrepreneurial courage and a drive to be successful. The Mayer family’s enduring commitment champions a long-term corporate strategy and financial independence. The management team and family shareholders enjoy a constructive working relationship. This success story will continue on this basis.

We are focussing on four areas that are crucial to ensuring the success of our group of companies, specifically:

  • Textile machine engineering, our core business that has grown over time
  • The development and production of electronic components as key competence parts within our machines
  • Digital solutions that give our customers access to the world of Industry 4.0
  • M&A to ensure success in other business areas beyond the volatile textile industry
