Corporate – History of STIHL


Although the idea remains unchanged, the tools of the STIHL craftsman have transformed dramatically.
Controlled machines craft intricate components with speed and dexterity the artisan never imagined. And lasers examine production quality with far greater precision.
Craftsmanship was a state of mind among STIHL employees in the past. It remains true today.
