Predecessor institutes in the former district of Aalen

An Oberamtssparkasse was founded in Aalen in 1848. However, this was dissolved again in 1859.

On August 2, 1881, the Oberamtsparkasse Ellwangen was founded. On the basis of a resolution by the Aalen District Office on March 8, 1882, the Aalen Oberamtssparkasse was re-established on August 18 of the same year. On January 1, 1886, an Oberamtssparkasse was founded in Neresheim.

Due to the Württemberg district ordinance, all Oberamtssparkassen were converted into district savings banks on January 27, 1934. When, on August 25, 1938, a new law regulated the division of the country and as a result the previous districts of Aalen , Ellwangen and Neresheim were merged to form the Aalen district , a new district savings bank was established in Aalen, with main branches in Ellwangen and Neresheim.

Formation of the Kreissparkasse Ostalb

Due to the Baden-Württemberg district reform law, the Ostalbkreis was formed on July 23, 1971 by merging the two districts of Aalen and Schwäbisch Gmünd. It was given to Waiblingen Alfdorf and Göppingen Maitis and accepted by the old district of Backnang Gschwend .

On December 11, 1973, the newly formed district council of the Ostalb district decided that a joint district savings bank Ostalb should be formed. This was accomplished on January 1, 1974 through the merger of the two savings banks to form Kreissparkasse Ostalb with two legal offices in Aalen and Schwäbisch Gmünd. In 1984 the new headquarters in Aalen was opened, and in 1988 the conversion and extension of the headquarters in Schwäbisch Gmünd was opened.

From 1986, the Kreissparkasse Ostalb also made it possible for its private customers to manage accounts via the Internet, initially using the BTX procedure. After the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the Saxon Kreissparkasse Borna received partnership support in its conversion to the western banking and savings bank system.

Since 1996, practically all full-time branches have offered a 24-hour self-service service, after the locations of the ATMs and bank statement printers had been permanently expanded in previous years. In 1997, the Kreissparkasse Ostalb founded the Sparkassenstiftung Ostalb and gradually provided it with foundation capital of EUR 6 million (as of 2013). In 1998 the subsidiary S-Immobilien Ostalb GmbH was founded.

In 2002 the Kreissparkasse Ostalb celebrated its 150th anniversary with keynote lectures by the former Federal Presidents Roman Herzog and Richard von Weizsäcker .

In 2010, Kreissparkasse Ostalb founded S-Projektverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH as a further subsidiary.

In 2012, the following new business areas were added to the offer: corporate finance, care of the health professions, private banking and community of founders. Kreissparkasse Ostalb opened a new branch in the municipality of Kirchheim, thereby expanding its branch network to 74 locations in the Ostalb district.
