Good market prospects in Mexico: Mayer & Cie. at Exintex in Puebla

From 19 to 22 October 2016, Exintex was held in Puebla, Mexico. Mexico is a veritable cotton stronghold and an important textile market. Traditionally, it has been a key market for Mayer & Cie. (MCT), too. The textile industry is flourishing, a fact that was reflected in this year’s Exintex gain in volume and visitors. Horst Maier, MCT Sales Manager Latin America and on location again this year, stresses the positive development: “In contrast to 2014, a lot more exhibitors participated in this year’s edition of the fair. Both visitor frequency and quality of visitors exceeded our results in 2014.” Just as in the past years, clients demonstrated an unabated interest in mechanical Single Jersey and 8-lock machines. Mayer & Cie. has ideally positioned itself in this field, for instance with its Relanit 3.2 HS.

On Exintex, Mayer & Cie. presented the Relanit 3.2 HS’ sister model, the Relanit 3.2 S with a diameter of 30 inches and gauges up to E 28. This single jersey machines features all well-known advantages of relative technology, for instance gentle deflection of the yarn, low error rate and significant energy saving. Additionally, the Relanit 3.2 S comes at a very attractive price. “No wonder that the Relanit 3.2 S attracted both new and returning customers”, says Horst Maier. “Being a specialist in cotton, this machine perfectly fits the Mexican market. Overall, the Relanit 3.2 S helped us to form several new business contacts.”

In general, signs continue to be favourable in the Mexican textile market. Horst Maier summarises: “Due to a strong domestic economy and existing import barriers on textiles, domestic demand remains strong. At the same time, prospects on export markets are good. Incoming orders from Mexico’s most important trading partner, the US, continue to be at a high level.”
