Mayer & Cie returned from this year’s Febratex exhibition in a positive mood, buoyed by strong visitor numbers, although the circular knitting machine remained cautious over the ongoing performance of the unpredictable Brazilian market. “Quite positive,” was Horst Maier’s verdict on the exhibition, held from 21 to 24 August 2018 in Blumenau, with Mayer & Cie’s experienced Regional Sales Manager for Latin America, sounding a note a caution. “When we exhibited at Febratex two years ago, all the signs pointed toward an economic recovery and from mid-2016 we did indeed see an increase in demand for circular knitting machines,” Maier said. “That positive trend took a tumble for the time being at the beginning of this year.”
