Ever since Stihl’s founder, Andreas Stihl, invented the first portable petrol chainsaw back in the 1920s, Stihl’s focus has been on making people’s lives easier when working in and with nature.
His design revolutionised forestry work by making it possible for trees to be processed in the forest rather than transporting them to a mill, and that innovative way of thinking still runs through our company nearly 100 years later. It’s why they’re still the world’s best-selling petrol chainsaw brand now.
From a one-man operation to a global business employing more than 20,000 people worldwide, creativity, experience and significant investment in research & development have helped Stihl to expand their product range to offer the perfect tools for everyone working in nature, whether you are a professional user or a discerning home gardener.
Stihl are also proud that they are still a family-owned business with an unwavering commitment to their employees, the STIHL Approved Dealer network and our customers. And their focus on producing the best tools for the job means that they have introduced dozens of new innovations to the power tool market over the years.
