For nearly a century, they remained steadfast in its commitment to electric motors, never venturing into the realm of internal combustion engines—and it never will. Unlike traditional brands that are now incorporating cordless models into their primary fossil fuel outdoor power equipment (OPE) ranges in response to growing environmental awareness, this company has dedicated itself exclusively to the production of electric motors. This commitment to innovation and quality has made Kress an icon of German engineering, trusted by generations of professional users for its reliable tools.

The story of this company began in 1928 when the founder established a workshop for car electronics. From its inception, they focused on designing and manufacturing DC and AC electric motors. In the early 1960s, the company decided to diversify its product range. By 1964, a new factory in Bisingen, Germany, was operational, marking the start of manufacturing stationary workshop machines. The year 1969 saw the launch of a comprehensive range of portable power tools, further solidifying their reputation in the industry.

In 1979, Kress expanded its innovation capabilities by establishing a new research and development center in Wattwil, Switzerland. This move facilitated the expansion of their product range, with a particular emphasis on cordless tools. To reach a broader market, they enhanced its distribution network, making its products available in 60 countries through specialized dealers.

A significant milestone in Kress’s history occurred in 2017 when the brand joined the international Positec group. This partnership brought a substantial infusion of capital and advanced R&D capabilities, allowing them to fully commit to developing cordless outdoor power equipment tailored for commercial landscapers and discerning homeowners. This strategic move marked the beginning of the end of reliance on fossil fuels.

In 2023, they achieved another significant milestone with the launch of the 8-minute CyberSystem, a cutting-edge battery system that features the world’s fastest charging times. This innovation represents the culmination of nearly a century of dedication to electric motor technology and underscores Kress’s unwavering commitment to a sustainable, fossil-fuel-free future.
