STIHL Tirol continues social sponsoring partnerships

Langkampfen, 30 August 2023

STIHL Tirol, a garden equipment manufacturer and cordless product specialist from Langkampfen in Austria, is showing its strong commitment to social responsibility again this year. Partnerships were recently continued with two social organisations in Tyrol.

The cooperation with RollOn Austria, an association supporting the concerns and interests of people with disabilities, has now been in place for seven years. STIHL Tirol provides support for the salary of a disabled RollOn employee and helps fund the association’s public relations work. RollOn chairwoman Marianne Hengl says: “It is an enormous challenge, especially in times like these, to not forget about people with disabilities. We have fought hard for many things in recent years - such as jobs, the provision of aids and family relief. We are therefore all the happier when our work is supported by strong partners like STIHL Tirol.”

STIHL Tirol has been working with SOS Children’s Villages for even longer. This collaboration has lasted over 20 years. This year, the focus is on supporting the village community’s ABC educational project in the SOS Children’s Village in Imst. STIHL Tirol also regularly donates garden tools for maintaining the green areas in the SOS Children’s Village. As the village in Imst, which was the world’s first SOS Children’s Village, was in need of a STIHL pole pruner, STIHL provided one of these cordless garden tools when the two parties met. Head of STIHL Tirol Marketing and Sales Services Wolfgang Simmer is delighted: “We are proud to contribute to the valuable work carried out by the SOS Children’s Village that helps children and young people in difficult circumstances. It is also always nice when we can provide sponsorship in the form of a STIHL brand product.”
