The Stiller team


We don’t just talk team – we are a team. For us, work is more than just the daily trip to the workshop. This is where we can pursue our passion, encountering faithful souls and loyal companions along the way. We meet those people with open arms who have walked with us on our path, supported and further developed us on our way.

Our passion comes from our work, and you’ll soon see that, with us, your vehicle is in the best possible hands. We’d love to get acquainted.
