KARL MAYER’s software startup is setting up subsidiaries in China and Hong Kong

KARL MAYER is continuing along its path of digitisation, and is focusing on expansion and globalisation. From June 2019 onwards, KM.ON will be present in key markets with subsidiaries in China and Hong Kong.

This software startup offers a broad portfolio of digital solutions under the KM.ON brand. The company was set up in Frankfurt in 2017 as the KARL MAYER Digital Factory, and now operates under the uniform name of KM.ON GmbH.

In addition to Warp Knitting, Warp Preparation and Technical Textiles, KMO.ON is also one of KARL MAYER's business units and has a corresponding focus. "With this international setup, we are following KARL MAYER's strategy of being close to our customers. Our local presences enable us to focus our solutions for important sales regions even more specifically on the particular requirements of our customers there," says Antonia Gottschalk, who heads KM.ON GmbH together with Maximilian Kürig.

Both Managing Directors expect that globalisation will also provide impulses for the entire product portfolio. “The adaptation rate of software and digital solutions is enormous here. The heart of digitisation is beating strongly in China. With these new locations, we have our finger firmly on the pulse of a period of great change,” says Maximilian Kürig.
