“By acquiring Gestalt Robotics, we are tapping into the growth potential of AI applications for industrial technology,” says Dr. Johannes Schmidt, Chairman of the Board of Management of the INDUS Group. “With its technological expertise, this young, innovative company will provide new impetus for the further development of the INDUS Group. The acquisition thus supports our strategic initiative ‘Driving innovation’, which, among other things, promotes the rapid implementation of AI solutions in our portfolio companies.”

Thomas Staufenbiel and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jens Lambrecht, co-founders and Managing Directors of Gestalt Robotics, will continue to run the company. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jens Lambrecht: “With INDUS as a strong partner in the background, Gestalt Robotics now benefits from the necessary backing in a fast-moving market, while at the same time having the freedom to initiate new innovative projects and take advantage of growth opportunities.” With the ‘PARKOUR perform’ strategy update, INDUS has defined the future field of automation as a direction for further growth. “Gestalt Robotics’ focus on industrial automation complements our investment portfolio in the Engineering segment very well,” says Axel Meyer, Board member of INDUS Holding AG responsible for the Engineering segment. “Given the strong momentum in the automation sector, we will continue to make acquisitions in this area in the future.”
