Evolution St. Louis got an innovation award from St. Louis Mayor, Lyda Krewson. The award, given at the Mayor’s business celebration luncheon, recognised the Evolution St. Louis’s efforts to establish St. Louis as a start-up and technology hub. Evolution St. Louis is a high-tech knitting facility that uses cutting-edge 3D knitting technology.

“Evolution St. Louis is the most high-tech, highly advanced knitting facility in the United States right now. Our high-tech flat-bed knit manufacturing facility will revitalise the knit sector and create the supply chain of the future using innovative 3D, complete garment and fully-fashioned knit technology,” Jon Lewis, co-founder of Evolution St. Louis said.

Evolution St. Louis was one of two recipients of the award this year. The downtown St. Louis factory expects to begin production in November 2019. Evolution St. Louis will bring meaningful jobs with mentoring and structured job training for in-demand, high-tech roles to St. Louis. The company expects to create 50 to 60 jobs within the first three years, with additional jobs added as the company expands, according to a media statement by the company.

“Evolution St. Louis is establishing a new industry sector for the knit category. We have the most advanced knitting technology and software in the US, and we look forward to working across a range of industries to reinvent, recreate, and reignite the knit sector,” John Elmuccio, co-founder of Evolution St. Louis said.
