Stoll, Germany’s leading flat knitting machine manufacturer, and Myant Inc., a leading Canadian ‘textile computing’ company, have announced a strategic and exclusive collaboration that they say will “populate functional computing textile manufacturing in Canada and the US, with 500 state-of-the-art knitting machines from Stoll.”

It is unclear at this stage what is meant exactly by “roll out 500 new 3D knitting machines.” Knitting Industry believes this to be a collaboration that could eventually lead to the purchase of 500 new Stoll flat knitting machines by a network of organisations, rather than an announcement that 500 machines have been purchased. However, we are seeking clarification on this now.

“This collaboration will have a direct and powerful impact on the textile manufacturing industry worldwide as it raises the bar and sets a new gold standard for functional computing textiles,” the statement said.
