LAPP is well positioned for the future, just like Oskar and Ursula Ida Lapp were when they founded the company in 1959. In 1957, Oskar Lapp created the ÖLFLEX® control cable, the first protected trademark in the industry. More quickly followed. Throughout its history, the business has always been in family ownership. In Matthias Lapp, the third generation of the family has now begun to assume responsibility for the Company.


In 1959, ÖLFLEX® was the very first control cable to be designed with colour-coded wires and was at the same time the first branded cable in the world. Today, ÖLFLEX® connecting and control cables are some of the most widely used in the world, and for good reason.
