In the small West African country Benin, the Glo-Djigbé Industrial Zone (GDIZ) is currently under construction and will process locally grown agricultural products such as cotton, cashew nuts, pineapple, shea nuts and soybeans. 

As of March 2022, a total of 10 companies had already relocated to the GDIZ, including representatives from the textile industry. As part of a special project, home textiles production is set to be a particular focus in the GDIZ. The project involves building up capacity in the spinning, circular knitting and weaving sectors, thus investing in textile machinery from renowned manufacturers. Contracts were signed with the Karl Mayer Group, Obertshausen/Germany, for warp preparation machinery. In spring 2023 Karl Mayer is to deliver several direct warpers and sizing machines, as well as a sectional warping machine to Benin. The warp beams are intended for processing into terry cloth and bed linen.

»For the most part, we serve customers in typical textile regions. Benin is almost a brand-new territory for us from a business perspective. We are looking forward to sharing in this exciting project that will positively affect the country’s economic development. «
