100 Years Oskar Lapp
Pioneer for the future
He was a brilliant inventor and a passionate businessman – Oskar Lapp (1921-1987), founder of the LAPP Group, would have been 100 years old on 20th March 2021. Together with his wife Ursula Ida Lapp, he founded our world-renowned company and is still making an impact on connection technology worldwide to this day.
Oskar Lapp developed the first rectangular connector for industry and the world’s first industrially manufactured and flexible power and control cable under the name ÖLFLEX®. He was the first entrepreneur to give an industrial product a brand name. Over a million customers trust the LAPP brands today. Without Oskar Lapp, we wouldn’t exist today.
