Stihl Southwest celebrates 50 years

Stihl Southwest also plans to reward, inspire, and honor those Stihl dealers for their support. Each of the events will be posted on the celebration website at, which also shares the history, recollection and photographs throughout the years from Stihl Southwest, Inc.
