Evolution St. Louis has announced it has hired Sevan Altan as its first general manager. Altan brings decades of experience in flat knitting, production, design, programming and business development, the company reports. He will oversee all departments at the company’s high-tech knit manufacturing facility in St. Louis, Missouri.

“Evolution St. Louis’ advanced technology offers great opportunities for designers to demonstrate their talents in fashion, technical textiles and more. With our Stoll flatbed knitting machines, a designer’s only limit is their imagination,” Altan said. “I have been in this industry for 28 years and I’m excited to be working for Evolution St. Louis. I’ve been impressed by St. Louis’ strong roots in fashion and apparel manufacturing and the team’s passion for the industry.”

Altan joins Evolution St Louis from Stoll America, where he managed operations and programming for flat knitting. His previous experience includes working in Istanbul for Abiteks Tekstil and Arslanli Örme as a Stoll programmer, designer, machine operator, production manager, knitwear designer and senior merchandiser.

“Sevan brings decades of knit manufacturing, apparel industry and Stoll experience to our company,” said Jon Lewis, co-founder of Evolution St. Louis. “His leadership will help support our continued growth at Evolution St. Louis.”
