The LAPP was founded by Oskar and Ursula Ida Lapp in 1957 as an ambitious family company. Over the years, the LAPP has gained international reputation and renown. As the founders of a unique industrial success story, they are an example for future generations, employees and friends.
With hard work and enthusiasm and a clear view of the essential, and with perseverance they are a model of focus, discipline and pioneering spirit - for the good of their customers and the future security of the company.
When Oskar Lapp died of heart disease in 1987, the company continued to be led in his spirit. Entrepreneurial foresight, an unwavering commitment to the company's interests and an absolute demand for quality are his legacy which lives on to this day.
His two sons, Andreas and Siegbert Lapp took over the management of the family business and have led the operation since then with their mother. Now, the third generation of the Lapp family have also taken responsibilities within the company.
The desire to actively shape the future and the courage to embrace change and to think in a visionary way that is focused on solutions and customers are what makes the LAPP great. The Group truly values their relationship with employees, customers and suppliers which are based on partnership, respect and trust.
