Karl Mayer is buying Stoll.
German company Karl Mayer the warp knitting machinery manufacturer has acquired Stoll, a flat knitting machine manufacturer also from Germany. The two long established and outstanding companies will combine forces to create a German powerhouse in the field of knitting. The alliance brings together two very strong brands in textile machinery building whose solutions portfolios and regional presence complement each other. With the acquisition, Stoll will become part of the global Karl Mayer Group, an independent family business. Stoll will benefit from the broad global positioning of Karl Mayer’s sales, service and production sites, and from the opportunities for joint development, such as in the field of digital solutions. This will enable Stoll to expand and accelerate its innovation strategy in the areas of digitalization and technology and strengthen its global presence.
Both family-owned companies can look back on a long and successful company history, and at the same time prove themselves time and again as trendsetters. In their respective market segments, they represent innovation, quality, long-term orientation, reliability and comprehensive expertise. They have complementary product portfolios and an even greater regional presence in all relevant markets. Karl Mayer is thus the only company in the textile industry to offer industry-leading solutions for the two main stitch-forming processes: knitting and warp knitting.
