Why are the Products Orange?

According to Dr. Nikolas Stihl, in the early days of STIHL the products were colored a dark red. In the early 1970s it was decided that STIHL needed a more modern look and several branding changes were made. One was to change the color to a more dynamic, bright and modern color choosing orange. Other changes included changing the logo and creating a specialized typeface. The orange over grey combination is now a registered trademark of STIHL.
