Greater stability for a sustainable success story

Since 1990, INDUS Holding AG has served as the parent-company to AURORA. INDUS is a leading specialist for sustainable participation as well as development of businesses within the German mid-tier classification (Mittelstand). Predominantly, INDUS acquires family-owned businesses in the manufacturing industry and supports their stake with long-term direction for corporate development. Their daughters are strategically placed, especially in niche markets. As a publicly held and growth-oriented financial investor, INDUS ensures that the group companies maintain their special strengths and mid-tier identities.

The strategy “Buy, Hold & Develop” adopted by INDUS secures, on one hand, the mid-tier characteristics of speed, ingenuity and adaptability. On the other hand, the strategy connects these traits with the future reliability of a financially-strong group with about 1.80 mrd. € turnover in 2023 and more than 10,000 members worldwide.

Our History


Global Innovation: First heater for buses, ever

AURORA was born with an innovative idea. At the end of the 1920s, Konrad G. Schulz installed a heater inside the Ford Model A, one which carried warmth from the heater circuit to the inside of the vehicle. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Schulz assembled a comparable heater, installing it into “AURORA”, one of the buses of his own bus fleet. Later, he presented the prototype to Karl Kässbohrer in Ulm to captivate him with the never-before-felt power of his innovative heating devices, convincing him to offer the heaters as optional equipment.


AURORA Founded

AURORA was founded in Leipzig. This move represents the spark which ignited the flame AURORA has become today.
