About us

Maschinenvorführung mit Christian Kirchhoff

Corporate profile

In 1985 the organic farmer and mechanical engineer Walter Kress started to combine old knowledge with innovative technology for gentle and environmentally friendly soil cultivation. To him it was important that the machines required for that purpose were made accessible for everyone.
Kress & Co. GmbH emerged from that in 1989 with the associates Walter Kress, Georg Kress and Gerard Storm.

Christian Kirchhoff joined the company in 1991 and became the Managing Director in 1995. He took over the company in 1997 and since then is owner-manager. In that time, the company produced proprietary weeding systems and traded in seeding, planting, and soil cultivation technology.
Fobro-Kress GmbH was formed in 2011 through a cooperation with Bärtschi-Fobro AG from Switzerland.
Already one year later the company became independent again with its current name K.U.L.T. Kress Umweltschonende Landtechnik GmbH.
Since then we have been focusing again on our core-business, the production and trade of mechanical weeding systems and the trade in flame weeding machines.
As a result the production and continuous improvement of our proprietary products for vegetable and crop cultivation as well as specialized crops is our main focus. Thus orchards and vineyards are typical areas for use of our machines. In addition special machines, several accessories and also spare and wear parts complete our assortment.

Because of increased demands from the North-American market, a subsidiary was founded in 2014, K.U.L.T.-Kress LLC. They have been supplying the American market since then with the most modern weeding technology.
A worldwide dealer network makes our machinery available throughout the world, everywhere where precision and individual solutions for weed management are needed.

For 32 years now we have been doing our best in reacting to your individual needs. Every machine is an individual item and in its appearance the result of detailed consulting. All our own developments have been tested thoroughly and extensively over the years. Our endeavour is to provide you with easy-to-use, low-maintenance and first of all effective machines for your special needs.

We look forward to hearing from and are happy to advise you.

Your Team of K.U.L.T. Kress Umweltschonende Landtechnik GmbH
