Company Information

Leonding (euro adhoc) - Rosenbauer has expanded its service network by opening a
new service center for
aerial appliances in France. Working from its new base in Chambery, Metz Aerials
now offers a wide range of repair and maintenance services for aerial appliances
throughout France. In future, this facility will also carry out service work on
air crash tenders, forest fire-fighting vehicles and 'véhicules urbains'
(municipal vehicles). Customers in France will now benefit from shorter travel
times and greater availability of their vehicles and from knowing that
professional service is not far away when needed. The new service company
operates under the name of Metz-Service18. Inauguration of the new site is
scheduled for mid-2013.
Rosenbauer is already a familiar name in France, and not just because of the
PANTHERs supplied to Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. Metz Aerials, the
Rosenbauer Group's aerial rescue specialist, has long been active in France. It
has served French fire services for over 15 years, and there are now more than
150 Metz turntable ladders in service around the country. Major cities
throughout France, from Paris to Marseilles, Lyons, Toulouse, Nice, Nantes,
Strasbourg, Bordeaux, Saint-Étienne, Grenoble, Nîmes and Dijon, all rely on
appliances from Metz Aerials.
For a fire engineering supplier like Metz, a well-organized service network is a
critical success factor, as apparatus such as aerial rescue vehicles has to
function dependably and well, under tough conditions, for many decades. With
today's tightly stretched public-sector budgets, apparatus is tending to be kept
in service ever longer, in some cases for as long as 30 years. This is only
possible with professional servicing - which for Metz Aerials is something that
comes naturally.
Rosenbauer has service operations and partners in over 100 countries, enabling
it to offer comprehensive service. This puts Rosenbauer close to its customers;
no other fire engineering supplier has a network anything like as dense. Thanks
to this extensive territorial coverage, customers will find a high-calibre
service center 'right on their doorsteps', so to speak, saving them not only
long journeys but also time and money.
"In the medium term, we shall be strengthening our service network in France
still further. What is more, France is an important European municipal market
that is in the process of opening up. The new service location gives us a
'local' presence, and we also see good opportunities to succeed in France not
just with aerials but also with municipal vehicles and fire & safety equipment",
notes Dr. Dieter Siegel, CEO of Rosenbauer International AG.
