In 1968, STIHL appointed KTS Trading Sdn Bhd as its East Malaysia and Brunei Distributor. This was a major milestone for both KTS and STIHL. KTS Trading Sdn Bhd had established sales branch offices on Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu, Miri, Lawas, Labuan, Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Lahad Datu, Tawau and Brunei. This created a wide network in the supply of STIHL Products throughout East Malaysia and Brunei. STIHL’s high performance chainsaw proved to be a vital tool in the industry due to their durability, long operating hours and good after sale services.
In 1994, KTS-STIHL celebrated its 25th year anniversary. During this time, KTS Trading Sdn Bhd also started to market other powertools such as Cut-off saws, earth augers and High Pressure Cleaners.
KTS-STIHL celebrated 50th year anniversary of the partnership in 2018, KTS and STIHL have remained relevant with advances in technology. Among others, STIHL produced palm cutter that can be applied in the harvesting of Palm Fruit Bunches to increase the production in Oil Palm Industry and battery products for better environment care.
The 50th Anniversary reflected half a decade of symbolic partnership between KTS and STIHL. We are proud to be part of STIHL’s global family. We aim to forge ahead not only by supplying high performing and efficient chainsaws and powertools but also by jointly caring for a greener environment.
