Auto-Gauss becomes part of the IRS Group

Traditional enterprise from Pforzheim decides for future in the network

Since 01.02.2021 the Auto-Gauss GmbH from Pforzheim is part of the IRS Group. From small beginnings, the family business has developed into the leading company in the Pforzheim area in over 40 years. The 30-headed team will offer its services in the vehicle repair from now on under the new firm name “IRS Gauss”, led by Yvonne and Karl-Otto Gauss, which will continue to lead the enterprise also under the roof of the IRS group.

On over 2000 square meter workshop surface many coworkers of many years work in Pforzheim, who guarantee the high quality requirement of the enterprise with their technical knowledge. A further basis for the high performance standard in Pforzheim are continuous investments in the workshop equipment. The result of the pronounced service orientation is a very high level of customer satisfaction.

A secure future for their highly qualified team was the main reason for the entrepreneurs to integrate their business into IRS. “We look forward to now being part of a strong group and helping shape the future in the auto body and paint industry.”

“Auto-Gauss enjoys an excellent reputation in the industry and continues to build on the strong position of IRS in southwestern Germany,” says a delighted Managing Director Frank Gerardy. With the new facility in Pforzheim, IRS now has 30 body and paint locations in Germany and continues to consistently focus on growth.
