The company first appears in Ian Fleming's 1959 James Bond novel Goldfinger and made a subsequent appearance in its 1964 film adaptation.

Entreprises Auric A.G. makes its first appearance in Ian Fleming's 1959 James Bond novel Goldfinger. The company is an engineering business based in Coppet in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland. Owned by Auric Goldfinger, they manufacture metal furniture for the Swiss railways and airlines such as Mecca (also owned by Goldfinger), a major charter line to India.
Entreprises Auric plays a major part in Goldfinger's gold smuggling scheme, taking the gold components of Auric's armour-plated Silver Ghost and melting them down to be modeled into chairs for Mecca aircraft. Once arriving in India, the chairs are stripped off the plane and replaced with aluminium ones; netting Goldfinger close to a million pounds in profit.
