In view of growing industrialization, the demand for cables and wires grew rapidly in the 1950s. This prompted Oskar Lapp to develop an idea of how stranded wires and single core conductors could be easily and quickly drawn into the insulation sheathing. This resulted in the first industrially produced oil-resistant and flexible control cable with color-coded wires.
Thanks to the successful idea, the cornerstone was laid for the subsequent industrial success story and in 1959 Oskar Lapp and his wife Ursula Ida, founded U.I. LAPP KG in Stuttgart. Since 1979, the first overseas branch office was established in the USA. Expansion into other countries was not far behind.
Today LAPP is a world-renowned family owned company that has developed into a global supplier of innovative cable technology for over 50 years. They have over 17 locations, 100 agencies and 39 distribution companies worldwide.
The production of the products takes place predominantly in their own manufacturing facilities. The largest production facility is located in Forbach, France. Comprehensive quality control and test procedures are carried out at LAPP Center Asia, in Bengalore.
