European equipment maker expanding into North American market


For nearly a century, the German company Kress has been a leader in the manufacturing of electric batteries and now professional turf care equipment. 

A staple in the European market for decades, Kress is expanding its line of professional equipment for the turf industry into the North American market.

Today, Kress makes a full line of battery-operated outdoor power equipment and small-area autonomous mowers.

Leveraging the brand’s German engineering and design heritage, Kress will introduce commercial-grade turf management and other outdoor power equipment for turfgrass management professionals in the U.S. and Canada interested in transitioning from gas-powered equipment.

Founded in 1928, Kress launched to the European market clean, quiet, professional- grade tools. Today, with the brand’s introduction to North America, Kress's proprietary technologies will now be available to turf management professionals in the U.S. and Canada.

"For decades, Kress has demonstrated its quality, durability and innovation in the European markets," said Don Gao, CEO of Positec Group, the parent company of Kress.

Kress will make its entry into the North American market at the Equip Exposition (formerly the GIE+Expo) in October in Louisville, Kentucky.
