Company History

Knitted Dreams – created by ingenuity and diligence.

It is not without reason that STOLL is nowadays one of the leading flat knitting machine manufacturers worldwide.

Heinrich Stoll

A modest start in 1873 turned out to become an unprecedented success story today. With the development of the first links-links flat knitting machine, Heinrich Stoll set a milestone in the history of knitting technology only a few years after starting his business. He did not only revolutionize the textile machine market but also laid the foundation for a successful company history that has lasted until today. Over 1000 STOLL-employees worldwide, several hundred patents and inventions and many satisfied customers are the result of a continuous development process in the sense of the ingenuity of Heinrich Stoll.



Milestones are for example the jacquard installation, the first computer controlled flat knitting machine, the worldwide first professional pattern preparation plant, the first computer controlled knitting machine (CMS) and the ability to knit technical fabrics on flat knitting machines.


There is an extensive description of Heinrich Stoll’s achievements under the pdf-Files or under Milestones.
