Stocker GmbH, based in Lana, South Tyrol -Italy. This page is for all our customers, for those who want to become one, but also for all those interested in gardening. May you be professional or an amateur gardener, we are your specialist when it comes to garden pruners and saws, garden tools, protection and winding materials and irrigation systems.
The name Stocker stays as synonym for first class quality in the area of garden and agricultural products since 1985.
During the early years of its existence, the family owned business based in Lana - South Tyrol specializes itself primarily on quality shears for the professional sector (viticulture and orchards), while its retail network is limited to Northern Italy (Trentino / South Tyrol - Veneto - Friuli – Emilia-Romagna).
During the 1990s the company is increasingly expanding its product range and products such as binding materials for orchards and vineyards, covering materials for horticulture and small gardening tools are sold. Therefore, the retail network is also increasing over the whole Italian territory, with the primary customers still consisting of distributors for professional users (viticulture, orchards and cultivation of citrus fruits). The company also starts to develop and sell progressively in Austria and Southern Germany.
Still during the 90s in regards of environmental consciousness and energy saving the new (now already old) headquarters are being opened.
During the new millennium Stocker produces and sells innovative cutting tools (especially shears and saws), while still focusing primarily on the professional sector. However, a new and important market has been recognized: that of Garden Centers and for amateur gardeners.
Most of the people put more emphasis on beautiful gardens and the Stocker GmbH adapts to this change by gradually beginning with -and extending- a study of new garden products. The company now offers products such as solar lamps (one of the best-selling product segment of the company), irrigation technology for the hobby sector, covering materials for small vegetable gardens, binding materials and shears for garden lovers.
The retail network in Austria is covered by Stocker’s own agents while part of the market in Southern Germany and Slovenia is conquered.
From 2005 to 2010 the company is investing more and more in products of both segments -professional and hobby- with the hobby sector gaining gradually more weight, so that the sales in this sector offset the sales of the professional one. In addition, the retail network is spreading out more:
In 2006 the company opens itself to the Spanish market and by 2009 it covers the whole country with its own network of agents. The Greek market is conquered in 2007, followed by Croatia in 2009 and Serbia, Kosovo, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Portugal and France in 2010.
In the End of 2010, the new headquarters based in the industrial zone of Lana and consisting of innovative storage logistics, as well as an automated and modern office building, is completed.
The building of steel has a storage capacity of 10,000 pallets to ensure an efficient and quick operation, so that orders can be delivered trouble-free and rapidly to our customers.
During the last 25 years the company has grown increasingly and surely will continue to do so thanks to its steady development of new products.
