A range of environment friendly, battery-powered outdoor tools were recently launched by Figaro (Pvt.) Ltd at Water’s Edge, Battaramulla.

The range of tools made in Germany by Andreas Stihl based on its ‘Go Green’ concept includes bush cutters, hedge trimmers, blowers, concrete cutters and chainsaws. 

Figaro is the authorized distributor for Andreas Stihl products in Sri Lanka. The tools specially designed for environment friendly outdoor usage are powered by batteries and will be an efficient and effective option for small and large-scale garden maintenance, construction work and cleaning services.

Stihl is a world leading brand in outdoor power tools mainly for chain saws and brush cutters. Apart from battery products, new entry level electric chain saws are also launched. 

The launching ceremony was held with the participation of Andreas Stihl Germany’s representatives, its South Asian fully-owned subsidiary’s directors and representatives, directors and officers of Figaro (Pvt.) Ltd, sales dealers and customers. 

The environment friendly Stihl power tools are available with Figaro sales dealers islandwide for competitive prices.

Speaking at the launch, Stihl South Asia Managing Director Parind Prabhudesai said, “Stihl has successfully launched different battery products across the Asian market. Sri Lanka being a developing country has a lot of potential for hand-held power tools. We have a strong foundation laid by Figaro and now have plans to expand the business across Sri Lanka through our servicing dealers. We will continue to invest in all three categories of electric, gasoline and battery technology.” 

Sharing his views, Andreas Stihl AG & Co. KG, Germany Manager Middle East and India Peter Wesner said, “Sri Lanka has become one of the growing potential markets for Stihl. The management is committed to invest more in terms of presence, service and new products into this market.
