Based in Reutlingen (Baden-Württemberg, Germany), Stoll is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of straight knitting machines.
With the development of the first knitting machine for link-links, Heinrich Stoll marked a milestone in the history of knitting technology only a few years after starting his business. Not only has it revolutionised the textile machinery market, it has also laid the foundations for a successful company history to this day.
Founded in 1873, it currently has 1000 employees worldwide and a catalogue that includes straight knitting machines and programming software dedicated to the production of technical fabrics and fashion.
The company exports to more than 50 countries thanks to an extensive network of branches, sales/assistance centres and agencies.
It has been present in Italy since 1989 with a dedicated structure with about 30 employees and a turnover of 18 million euros, and a department dedicated to technical-medical fabrics.
The Stoll brand has achieved a well-known reputation with many facets. For more than 140 years, the image of a solution-oriented manufacturer of flat knitting machines has been maintained and further developed.
Today the Stoll company represents the integrative link between the highly sophisticated technology in the area of development and production of flat knitting machines and an innovative independent thinker and developer in the Fashion & Technology section.
Under the motto “Design to inspire”, the Fashion & Technology department is the interface between the market and fashion on the one hand and technology on the other.
