In addition to STIGA branded products the UK company also owns Mountfield and ATCO.  The STIGA brand in the UK market features an innovative, class leading battery powered range, with all products designed at the company’s Italian headquarters in Italy with manufacturing plants there and in Slovakia and China.

The UK headquarters in Plymouth is one of 14 commercial offices in Europe that oversee sales of STIGA garden machinery in more than 70 countries worldwide.  In the UK STIGA  is poised to become a major brand leader in battery powered garden machinery.

The ‘green-fingered’ engineering and design team in Italy is a leading force in developing battery powered equipment that will tick all the boxes as we strive for environmentally positive gardening across Europe.  The batteries are designed using the very latest technology to produce clean, efficient and easily rechargeable power.

“We are at the cutting edge of design in battery power for garden products,” says Gary Whitney, managing director of STIGA UK.   “Our ethos is always to be the best in the market and to achieve this our European R & D team has brought creative and exciting new innovations to British gardeners.  Products that make not just lawn mowing, but pruning, cutting, trimming and even cleaning easier and more environmentally secure.”

The perfect example of this is the new versatile SWIFT garden ride-on.  It is the world’s first battery powered rider with removable batteries that can be shared with a wide-range of hand-held garden products from within the STIGA range.  This includes strimmers, long reach pruners, hedge cutters, blowers and mowers.
