In view of the current global status, medical protective equipment is in short supply in many places. As a manufacturer of flat knitting machines, STOLL would like to actively support its partners and customers in the current situation. That is why STOLL provided the Bruderhausdiakonie Reutlingen with a flat knitting machine for the production of oronasal masks for the staff of these companies.


The two companies, H. STOLL AG & Co. KG and the Bruderhausdiakonie, have enjoyed a close and trusted partnership and friendship for many years. The two companies have always felt strongly connected and maintain close contact; That is precisely why STOLL would now like to support this partnership and thank you for the, always open, honest exchange and cohesion.


The Bruderhausdiakonie is a non-profit, Christian-diaconal foundation. Diakonie's offerings include a wide range of assistance and support services for children, adolescents and adults. With around 4500 employees, the Bruderhausdiakonie is an important institution in the region. With the goal of “Having a part. Be part” – the Diakonie enables people to participate in work, education, home and society.


On Wednesday, April 15, 2020, the handover of an ADF 530-16 BW took place in a small group on the premises of the Bruderhausdiakonie. Andreas Schellhammer, CEO of STOLL, handed over the flat knitting machine to a member of the Board of Directors of Diakonie, Lothar Bauer. This means that Bruderhausddiakonie is now able to knit oronasal masks independently for the entire Diakonie workforce on site.


"It is a matter of course for STOLL to stick together in this extraordinary situation, which is difficult for all of us"; says Andreas Schellhammer. "We look forward to being able to help with our know-how and technology and to be a reliable and supportive partner."
