Top 100 Award
Knitting machine manufacturer is one of Germany’s most innovative companies. Top 100 mentor Ranga Yogeshwar presented the award on Friday evening in Essen to Benjamin and Sebastian Mayer, representing the family that owns the firm.
The knitting machine manufacturer was presented with a Top 100 award on 24 June, entitling Mayer & Cie. to count itself as a member of the German elite in this segment. The long-established company won the award for its innovation management and successful innovation, the latest of which is the spinitsystems spinning and knitting technology.
“We are delighted to have been named one of the Top 100 companies in Germany,” said Sebastian Mayer, the Mayer & Cie. director in charge of corporate development. “This accolade confirms that we are indeed fulfilling our claim to be an innovation driver in the circular knitting machine sector.”
In recent years, spinitsystems technology has mostly topped the development department’s agenda. Mayer & Cie. unveiled the series production-ready machine, the Spinit 3.0 E, at the ITMA 2015 in Mailand. The company has succeeded with this totally new approach in combining the spinning and knitting process in one machine. The Top 100 jury saw this as proof of Mayer & Cie.’s unconventional approach. The jury was also impressed by the tenacity with which Mayer & Cie. pursues its innovation objectives. Top 100 awards are not made for individual products but for a company’s overall performance – and Mayer & Cie.’s overall performance is impressive.
