In addition, we've made signifi cant investments in our manufacturing and regional distribution operations to expand our ability to support our customers. And we continue to invest heavily in training programs for our employ- ees, dealers and the industry, including workforce development initiatives within landscaping and tree care organizations. As a result of the shared efforts of our employees and STIHL servicing dealers, in 2017 STIHL gained market share in both the gas and battery segments. Now with a winning combination of people, products and programs, 2018 promises to be another exciting year of growth and success.
