STIHL Group was founded in Germany by Andreas Stihl in 1926, when he had the idea for his first chainsaw. Growing from a one-man business into a global company, it has been the world’s biggest-selling chainsaw brand since 1971. Celebrating 90 years in the industry this year, STIHL is still a family-owned business with around 14,000 employees worldwide and nearly 3.3 billion euros in revenue.
Today, STIHL develops, manufactures and distributes power tools for professional forestry and agriculture as well as
for garden and landscape maintenance, the construction sector and private users. Though best known for its premium power tools for professionals, the consumer side is growing fast in Scandinavia.
