The company was founded in Germany under the name J├Ągersteig Beteiligungs GmbH in November 2014. The company was renamed Deutsche Industrie Grundbesitz AG in October 2017. In December 2017, the company went public on the Berlin Stock Exchange. Since the beginning of 2018, the Company had obtained the REIT status (''real estate investment trust'') and had been named Deutsche Industrie REIT-AG. As a result, the company was exempt from corporation and trade tax.

In the course of the takeover by CTP, the REIT status was terminated in January 2022 and the stock exchange listing was cancelled.  Since 20 January 2022, the name of the company has once again been Deutsche Industrie Grundbesitz AG.

The objective of the company is to acquire, develop and manage an attractive portfolio focused primarily on infrastructurally well-connected locations across Germany which have a high local relevancy.
