As a manufacturer of chain saws and power tools for gardening and landscaping, we at ANDREAS STIHL AG believe that we depend on a sound natural environment. We are constantly working to harmonise our business goals with environmental demands. For this very reason, STIHL is committed to making a direct contribution to environmental conservation in addition to its efforts aimed at reducing emissions resulting from processes and products. Among our many activities, we have supported the organisation Bergwaldprojekt (Mountain Forest Project) since 2006. Today, we would like to tell you a little more about this project.
A picture is worth a thousand words. This old saying is definitely true when it comes to the STIHL Catalogue, the 260-page reference work that gives you, our customers, a complete overview of the STIHL products on offer.
Ritual tree worship dates back to pre-Christian times. Back then, decorated evergreen trees were seen as a symbol of life and fertility and worshipped around the winter solstice. In the Roman era, New Year’s customs included placing branches and deciduous trees in heated rooms to force them to bloom. These customs have evolved over the years, with the blossoms replaced by candles to become today’s Christmas tree, a symbol of gift giving and light.
In our interview, STIHL apprentice and “Jugend forscht”* winner Patrick Ziesel talks about how his invention came to be and what he has experienced since winning the national competition.
“Made by STIHL” is a brand promise – no matter the location of production. So STIHL and China have been a very successful combination for many years. Since 2006, our plant in Qingdao has been proving that tried-and-tested STIHL quality can also come from China. The secret? Production processes, quality standards, occupational health and safety standards, and environmental standards at STIHL are equally high all over the world.
You can get various offers of outdoor power equipment at just about any big box retailer – but you can’t get a STIHL. Why? Because STIHL products are only sold through authorized dealers. STIHL Dealers provide a high level of knowledge and they offer expert advice, qualified service and perfect all-round care.
STIHL is present on social media platforms. To mark the kick-off of our new formats, we have produced three videos that clearly visualise our commitment to the different platforms. Prepare to be amazed!
