indurad grew out of a research project at the Institute of Mineral Resources Engineering (RWTH University of Aachen) in 2003. Only four years later, the first indurad prototype sensors were installed on heavy mining machinery near Aachen. Based on these experiences, indurad was founded as a company and officially incorporated in 2008.

The following years saw new sensors, business awards, the establishment of international subsidiaries and partnerships, and – last but not least – a steady and healthy growth in staff and office space at home in Aachen, Germany. In 2018, indurad will celebrate 10 years of successful and innovative work in automation and mining safety.

Located in Aachen, Germany

Our brandnew headquarters are located on Aachen’s Mount Lousberg, an ancient open pit flintstone mine overlooking the city of Aachen. We are proud that our present home is a link between past and present of our core business – mining.

Here, close to 100 indurad employees work in a 1950’s water tower, which has just recently been converted into modern office space. Our 600 m² production space sits in Laurensberg, a suburb of Aachen, about 1 km away from our Lousberg offices.
