Facts and Figures

The STIHL Group achieved a record high once again in 2017 with sales revenue amounting to 3.8 billion euro. This corresponds with an increase of 9.7 percent compared to last year. Had foreign exchange rates remained at the previous year´s level, growth would have actually been 10.2 percent. The positive development worldwide is also reflected in the number of employees. The number of employees in the worldwide Group climbed 6.4 percent to 15,875 as of the end of the year.

Worldwide investments (EUR 248 million) once again exceeded depreciations (EUR 156 million). Now as ever, the STIHL Group's equity ratio is high at 70.2 percent. This forms an important basis for the independence of the family-owned company, and the long-term orientation of the strategy. STIHL finances all investments with own liquid assets. In order to make STIHL products even more attractive, many of our activities in 2017 were characterized by digitalization.
