Schoeller Textil has added a new business unit for knits, and has named Stefano Tonizzo to lead it. The unit encompasses all knits for the sports sector and comes six months after Schoeller acquired the sports and technical textiles areas from Eschler. Product development and sales both are handled by the knits unit. Tonizzo has been with Schoeller since September 2010, and before that had many years with Greuter Jersey AG.
