Andrew Dahlgren is an entrepreneur whose company is building a 21st century knitting mill that combines technology, craft, and design to produce high quality and long lasting woven products. He has entered the Chase Mission Main Street $100,000 Grant Competition and plans to use the funds to purchase a commercial scale knitting machine and to start an apprenticeship program to train two new employees if he wins. While he is creating a facility with the newest knitting machines and highly skilled creative technicians and designers, Andrew will still focus on local production, small batch manufacturing, and a supportive community.
