KARL MAYER participate in Blue Competence, the sustainability initiative of the German Machinery and Plant Association (VDMA)

(PresseBox) (Obertshausen, ) The Blue Competence campaign is a platform for sound, factual information, which should set up textile engineering as the problem solver for current and future demands of society, particularly with respect to sustainability, energy efficiency and the conservation of resources - an aim to which more than 20 engineering sectors have dedicated themselves by taking part in the campaign.

The textile machinery association offers its members the use of the Blue Competence initiative by taking part as an 'alliance member', but is declining to make a general label declaration for individual products. The reasons for this are the high costs of drawing up and monitoring the necessary rules and regulations.

Nonetheless 'alliance members' can use Blue Competence for marketing purposes. Its position regarding sustainability in a respectable and sound field of technology is an effective answer to customers' demands for solutions which are compatible with the environment.

KARL MAYER Malimo has decided to join the campaign. The manufacturer satisfies the criteria for taking part in the VDMA campaign with its company agreements and the aims of the development and construction processes, as well as the treatment of its employees. In addition the nonwoven webs produced on the biaxial and multiaxial machines from this Chemnitz manufacturer and used for reinforcing composites make an important contribution to the development of lightweight constructions and thus of products with an excellent energy balance during the whole of their life cycle.
