Germany - Dr Jochen Kress is president of the Germany-based Mapal Group effective 1 January 2018, taking over as successor after his father Dr. Dieter Kress retired from the executive board late last year.

Heading Mapal the last 49 years, Dieter Kress has stepped down, ending an era that shaped and paved the success of Mapal, which was founded by his father Dr. Goerg Kress in 1950. Under his leadership the last half century, the company grew from a small regional producer of tap drills with 100 employees into an international group with over 5,000 employees worldwide, of which 1,800 are based in the Aalen-HQ. Last year, the limited partnership (KG) generated consolidated sales of over 600 million euro. A successful leader, Dieter Kress was also awarded the Federal Cross of Merit on Ribbon of the Order of Merit from the Federal Republic of Germany for his outstanding contributions and personal commitments.
