Annual Report 2019


In little more than 90 years, STIHL has grown from an established member of the German Mittelstand into a global enterprise, and from a traditional mechanical engineering firm into a market and technology leader for chainsaws and other handheld outdoor power equipment. Along the way, battery power has come to be an increasingly important part of our business and now occupies a firm place within our product portfolio.

This success attests first and foremost to our innovative drive and vast store of knowledge, which has been passed down and built over generations and put to work profitably across the entire value chain. Our most important sources of knowledge are the men and women of the STIHL Group and those who work with STIHL equipment all over the world. With support from digital solutions, we develop new products and business models, tap into new markets and target groups, and provide solid training to the next generation of skilled workers the world over.


The development of new battery-­operated tools links new knowledge with experience gleaned from other, long-standing areas. One example: the STIHL AP 300S.
