Why STIHL Chooses Independent Dealers
Selling only through servicing Dealers builds loyalty, sales and satisfied customers.
We have nothing against the big box retailers. Really.
But when it comes to distributing, marketing and selling our power equipment, we prefer to keep it in the family. Always have. That's why STIHL is proud to be one of a few power equipment manufacturers to sell its products exclusively through independent servicing Dealers rather than mass merchants.
And the truth is, we owe much of our success to this arrangement, as well as to the quality and dedication of the men and women who proudly display the STIHL sign.
Thanks to 12 hard-working distribution operations across the country, our thousands of dealers stay well stocked and wonderfully supported. So, what advantages do our independent servicing dealers bring to the customer? For starters, they can help you select the right STIHL product.
Most carry a wide variety of tools and accessories for whatever your job, and they can offer fast, professional service if a problem arises. Plus, they can assemble your equipment and give you complete operating and safety instructions before you walk out the door.
To further show our support of our independent Dealers, we decided to sponsor Independent We Stand – a national movement of independent businesses dedicated to educating their communities about the benefits and importance of “buying local.” You can support the cause and help revive the local economy by shopping at these independent businesses. Buy their products. Eat their food. Use their services. In turn, these locally owned and operated businesses will continually pump your hard-earned dollars back into the local economy by way of taxes, payrolls and purchases.
So, whether you are a professional who depends on your tools each day, or a consumer who only has the weekend to get the job done, you can depend on STIHL and STIHL Dealers.
