Turkey is an important market with a long tradition for the KARL MAYER GROUP. The first warp knitting machine made by KARL MAYER was sent to the Middle Eastern country as early as 1951. The K2 No. 207 was ordered by Jacques Saftekin from Roja Örme and was set up on site by the company's founder, Karl Mayer, himself.
Since then, the number of customers and the various models supplied has steadily increased, especially from the early 1980s when far-reaching import restrictions fell. The first orders were for curtain and tricot machines, followed later by lace raschel machines.
For successful market support, the KARL MAYER GROUP cooperated with the sales agent ERKO from the very beginning. KARL MAYER opened its own site in Bursa on September 7, 2023.
