Pierer Industrie AG is an Austrian industrial investment group that is fully owned by Pierer Konzerngesellschaft mbH.

Significant Shareholdings include the PIERER Mobility Group based in Upper Austria and the Pankl AG Group, which operates in the automotive sector.

The PIERER Mobility Group is Europe’s leading manufacturer of “powered two-wheelers” (PTW). With its motorcycle brands KTM, HUSQVARNA Motorcycles and GASGAS, it is one of the European technology and market leaders, especially for premium motorcycles. In addition to vehicles with combustion engines, the product portfolio also includes emission-free two-wheelers with electric drives (e-motorcycles, e-bicycles and e-scooters). As a pioneer in electromobility for two-wheelers, the group and its strategic partner Bajaj have the prerequisites to assume a leading global role in the low-voltage range (48 volts). Entering into the (e-)bicycle segment was another important step in intensifying activities in the field of bicycle electromobility. Electric bicycles are being driven forward under the brands HUSQVARNA E-Bicycles, R Raymon and GASGAS E-Bicycles in order to participate in the attractive market growth in this segment and to become a major international player in this field..

The two companies Pankl Racing Systems AG and SHW AG form the core holdings of the Pankl AG Group. The Pankl Group develops, produces, maintains and distributes mechanical systems in the high-tech sector for dynamic components in the global niche markets of the racing, luxury car and aerospace industries. The SHW Group was founded in 1365 and is one of the oldest industrial companies in Germany. As an automotive supplier, SHW offers effective solutions in the field of pumps and engine components and lightweight composite brake discs. Since both investments focus on powertrain components in the automotive sector, the systematic cooperation provides the basis for further growth.

Furthermore, Pierer Industrie AG also holds shares in abatec GmbH. Abatec is one of the leading development and manufacturing companies for electronic assemblies in Austria.
