Stihl Building Dedication Reinforces Commitment to Manufacturing in America

Published: 9/12, 2019

Expansion includes new administration building, campus improvements and high-tech training facility

Stihl, Inc., formally dedicated a new administration building and improvements to its Virginia Beach, Va., campus during a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Oct. 10. The $30 million project is part of the company’s continual investment in infrastructure in support of growing U.S. operations. The new 80,000-ft2 (7,432 m2) building brings the company’s sales and marketing, finance and controlling, legal, and customer and technical service teams under one roof. 

“This new building will improve administrative and operational efficiency allowing us to better serve our network of more than 9,000 authorized Stihl dealers and their customers,” said Bjoern Fischer, president of Stihl, Inc. “As we mark 45 years of growth and expansion in Virginia Beach, we look ahead to a continued positive economic environment for successful modern manufacturing in the City of Virginia Beach.”

The project includes a state-of-the-art training center for authorized Stihl dealers featuring an auditorium, training lab and outdoor demonstration area for hands-on product testing and training; a chain saw “Helix” art installation, crafted out of more than 30 Stihl chain saws dating back to 1936, representing how chain saw innovation is part of the company’s DNA; a Stihl concept store showcasing an ideal retail space; and an enhanced entryway at the main gate for improved traffic flow and security

Since its inception in 1974, the Stihl Inc. campus has grown from a single 20,000-square-foot rented warehouse to well over one million square feet of manufacturing and administrative space.
