The Kress brand, with its deep-rooted heritage in German engineering and design, is coming to North America with commercial outdoor power equipment (OPE) for lawn care and landscape professionals. As a part of the well-established Positec family of leading brands, Kress Commercial is introducing advances that will, for the first time, offer commercial OPE professionals in North America the opportunity to transition away from gas-powered products, a transformation that will change the OPE industry forever.

Don Gao, CEO of Positec Group, said, “For decades, Kress has demonstrated its quality, durability and innovation in the European markets. It is very exciting to bring this storied brand to the North American professional landscaper as the Kress brand launches new commercial-grade OPE in the US and Canada.”

Built upon a reputation for innovation and pushing the boundaries in engineering and manufacturing excellence, Kress is well-established throughout Europe as a top-tier, professional-grade equipment manufacturer. As early as 1966, Kress introduced to the European craftsmen clean, quiet, professional-grade tools. Today, with the brand’s introduction to North America, Kress’s proprietary technologies will now be available to commercial landscapers in the US and Canada and will dramatically impact the gasoline-dependent lawn care industry.

Kress will launch in North America in Q4 2022 in conjunction with the International Equip Exposition (formerly GIE). Kress is positioned to become a powerhouse in professional-grade outdoor equipment in partnership with leading equipment dealers in the United States and Canada.
