1927

STIHL 1927

One year after founding his company, Andreas Stihl opens a factory in Bad Cannstatt, near Stuttgart.

The building is severely damaged during the war and Stihl moves production to Waiblingen where it remains today.

1930 - 1960

In the early 1930s, STIHL developed one of the first petrol-driven two-man chainsaws. In 1954, an attachment to the STIHL BL chainsaw transforms it into an earth auger. Andreas Stihl's vision is realised and the 'lightweight', portable chainsaw revolutionises the tree work industry.

 

1960 - 1990

STIHL 1960 - 1990

Production processes become more mechanised and the STIHL logo evolves to reflect its diversification of the range. STIHL opens a magnesium pressure die-casting plant in Prüm-Weinsheim. In 1974 STIHL Incorporated is founded in the United States and in 1978 Andreas Stihl Ltd is founded in Great Britain. 

1990 -

STIHL 2000

STIHL acquires garden equipment manufacturer VIKING and the company expands rapidly. New technologies are developed, including the innovative STIHL multi-tool KombiSystem (2000), cordless power tools (2009) and MS 441 C-M chainsaw's M-Tronic technology, a fully electronic engine management system (2010).
