Company Portrait

Since the company was founded in 1926 by Andreas Stihl, the “father of the chain saw,” STIHL has grown into an international manufacturer of chain saws and power tools. Today, STIHL has production plants at seven locations in Germany as well as in the United States, Brazil, Switzerland, Austria and China. The executive, advisory and supervisory boards and the engineering center are located at the German founding company, ANDREAS STIHL AG & Co. KG, in Waiblingen near Stuttgart.


The STIHL Group develops, manufactures and sells handheld gasoline-powered, electric and cordless power tools for the forestry industry, landscape maintenance and the construction industry. There are well over 1,500 STIHL patents and registered designs, most of which have been incorporated in series production. STIHL has been the world’s bestselling brand of chainsaws since 1971. In addition to chain saws, the extensive line of products includes brush cutters, hedge trimmers, blowers, sprayers, pressure washers, cut-off machines and earth augers, as well as protective equipment and accessories. As a matter of principle, products are distributed through a network of retailers offering full service – with 41 sales and marketing subsidiaries, more than 120 importers and some 53,000 servicing dealerships in more than 160 countries throughout the world.

The STIHL Group achieved a turnover of EUR 3.93 billion in fiscal year 2019. That represents a 4 percent increase over the previous year (EUR 3.78 billion). Without the effects of foreign exchange rates, turnover growth would have been around 2.7 percent. An equity ratio of 70.4 percent indicates that the financial structure of the company continues to be very sound. As a matter of principle, all investments are financed with the company's own liquid assets. As of December 31, 2019, the company had a worldwide workforce of 16.722 men and women. STIHL further expanded the dealer network last year. In the customers can buy STIHL products at more than 53,000 servicing dealers throughout the world and trust their professional advice and technical services.

Corporate Culture

Corporate responsibility has a long tradition at STIHL. As a family-owned company, we believe we have a special obligation to society. We fulfill this obligation in many ways, for example with voluntary social benefits for our employees, with attractive apprenticeships and traineeships, and with social involvement close to our sites. Continuity and a long-term view guide our actions, and are part of our understanding of sustainability, just like resource-conserving production and the STIHL products with built-in environmental protection. The focal points of our social responsibility are in the areas of sustainable business operations, employees, the environment and education.


An enterprise is more than just the sum of its employees, buildings, machinery and processes. It is also about more than merely making products or providing services. An enterprise is, above all, a strong and dependable community of people who work together to attain objectives. Those people must pull together and identify with the enterprise.
