STIHL - Quality tools since 1926
Andreas Stihl founds an engineering office in Stuttgart and develops his own chainsaw.
STIHL becomes a brand. The name represents the ceaseless quest of the engineer and company founder Andreas Stihl to ease the heavy labour of forestry work with his inventions.
STIHL presents his portable petrol-powered chainsaw at the Leipzig trade fair – it is well received and orders flow in from across Europe.
