In January, STIHL Inc. was named the Company of the Year by the Hampton Roads chapter of APICS. Regarding the selection of STIHL Inc. as its company of the year, Aaron Reinick, vice president of education for APICS Hampton Roads, said, "For over 15 years, STIHL has supported the training and development of their supply chain and operations employees with courses facilitated by APICS. Dozens of STIHL employees have participated in the training hosted at STIHL, and many have earned their APICS CPIM and APICS CSCP certifications. In addition, STIHL and STIHL employees have hosted APICS professional development meetings and have provided plant tours to our members. For these reasons, we select STIHL Inc. as the 2014 company of the year."
