Our company founder Andreas Stihl developed his first chainsaw in 1926. His incentive: "To ease peoples' work with and in nature". This guiding principle is still of cardinal importance for us today. We design our products to match our customers' requirements.
Since its foundation more than 90 years ago the company has grown from a one-man business into a global chainsaw and outdoor power equipment manufacturer. Innovative ideas, in-house know-how and meticulous craftsmanship have resulted in a broad and steadily expanding product portfolio.
STIHL has been the world's biggest selling chainsaw brand since 1971. Our outstanding innovations have set the benchmark for the industry time and time again. We want to continue growing and maintaining our values in the future, too. After all, lasting success can only be achieved by adhering to solid principles. We are proud to look back on more than 90 years of STIHL.
