Mayer & Cie. ships 70,000th knitting one piecelace lingerie machine to lingerie manufacturer Speidel
German knitting machine manufacturer Mayer Cie. (MCT) has delivered the 70,000th circular knitting machine in the company’ 110-year history in the last week of April.
The FV 2.0 double jersey machine was delivered for the knitted fabrics manufacturer Speidel, which is using the machine at its knitting factory in Bodelshausen, where the main production focus is on high-quality single jersey and fine rib lingerie, most of which is manufactured in body widths for optimal comfort.
For years Speidel has ordered the knitting machines solely from Mayer Cie. in Albstadt-Tailfingen.”We feel greatly honoured that the seventy thousandth Mayer Cie. knitting machine was supplied to us,”commented Hans-Jürgen Speidel, Production Manager at Speidel, who is in charge of the nearly 130 knitting machines at the company’ factory.
Constant quality Speidel knits between 90 and 100 tonnes of material per month, all for its own lingerie product lines, so the main focus – along with reliable machine performance – is on constant high quality of the knitwear.
Speidel mostly uses single jersey and fine rib machines that produce circular knitted fabric by the metre in standard body widths of between 12 and 20 inches and a variety of cotton blends, such as cotton and Modal or cotton and Elasthan. Less familiar materials like bamboo or a yarn based on algae also find their way via the knitting machine into the company’ latest lingerie collection.
“We naturally feel proud of delivering the seventy thousandth knitting machine to the customer, and we are especially proud that we are able to celebrate this occasion together with Speidel, a family firm like our own with a long tradition of innovation and a clear awareness of the merits of Quality Made in Germany,”commented Marcus Mayer, Managing Director and Production Manager at MCT.
