WAIBLINGEN, Germany – STIHL inaugurated its latest investments in Germany on March 4, 2016 – an extension to the engineering center and a new production logistics building in Waiblingen-Neustadt. German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel said in a special video message for the inauguration ceremony, “By extending your engineering center you are sending out a strong signal. You want to continue being a leader in the competition for better products that keep what they promise.”

Baden-Wuerttemberg‘s Minister President Winfried Kretschmann praised the company in his speech: “The fact that STIHL has invested here in Waiblingen is an encouraging sign for the people in the Stuttgart region as well as the economy in general and the political landscape. A Baden-Wuerttemberg model enterprise with a long tradition thus clearly demonstrates its commitment to its roots. These multi-million investments not only continue the company’s success story well into the future, they will also stimulate other firms to build up their industrial production in Baden-Wuerttemberg.”
