In the town of Noetinger, Córdoba, Argentina, Araus Hnos. was founded with a workshop to manufacture corn harvesting machines and corn maize seals. His beginnings in agricultural mechanization began in Armstrong, Santa Fe, when the brothers Julian, Romualdo and Tomas Araus, in his farm, were engaged in machine repairs, being in 1942 that built an automotive harvester with satisfactory results.

In Noetinger Edit

Years later (in 1948), already established in Noetinger, they started manufacturing in series, and years later became one of the most important factories in the country. During the decade of the 70 'and principles of the 80's, it came to export harvesters (as you can see in the image on the right).

Araus-Deutz stage Edit

Using Deutz engines for some time, his name changed to Deutz-Araus, using the classic green color of the latter since it had been bought by the local subsidiary of Deutz in Argentina which later closed in 1999.

In 2003 Metalfor acquired the former Araus industrial plant from AGCO Argentina S.A. (successor of Araus). The plant has a total area of ​​60,000 m2 and 15,000 m2 covered. Metalfor moved all the production of drag equipment, fruit trees, agro parts and also creates the first Metalfor combine model "Araus 1360", thus leaving the name "Araus" only as a model of Metalfor, but also used as a sub-brand, thus calling itself Metalfor Araus for products manufactured at the Noetinger plant.
