STIHL Qingdao Company Policy

As a subsidiary of STIHL Group, STIHL Qingdao supports the Vision and the Group
Corporate Culture "making it easier to work with nature and in natural surroundings" and
the Corporate Culture of the group.
Meanwhile, STIHL Qingdao follows its own mission "to provide best-to-buy forest and
garden products for quality and price in entry and semi-professional level".
Challenges from this mission are to combine the top quality with competitive cost, and to
continuously widen our scope of skills and function in order to grow into new areas and
to successfully enter emerging markets.
To cope with these challenges, our company culture focuses on the following five values
and related competences: Performance Excellence, Innovation, Collaboration, Trust and
Responsibility.
We expect our employees to share and live these values and that they continually
develop their related competencies to contribute to the company's and their own
development.
To maintain a suitable organization to achieve these goals and development, we
maintain in our plant a management system applying the international standards of ISO
9001: 2015, ISO 14001: 2015 and OHSAS 18001: 2007 for assembly of chain saw,
power tools and related accessories. The system covers all related processes, activities
as well as our products and it is valid for our location in Qingdao Export Processing
Zone, 266113, P.R. China.
For operational objectives, we maintain a system to derive and follow up targets on the
level of company/department/function and individual contributors.
We commit to Continuous Improvement as an integrated part of all our functions.
We share the group system of directives and standards and via developing and applying
local standards we make our processes and rules transparent and ensure the
application.
In order to continue our successful development in the future, we need a common
understanding of our commitment for Quality, Environment and Occupational Health &
Safety, Corporate Social Responsibility, Compliance, Continuous Improvement and
Employee-oriented management.
Our policy must be seen by all employees as a guide for their own conduct within the
company and in their dealing with the external environment. In their function as role
models, executives are called upon to practice this policy in an exemplary manner.
