Company Information/Anniversary

- 150 years of blazing passion
- From a fire service equipment business founded in 1866 to global market

In 1866, the primary aim of the decorative metal former, Johann Rosenbauer, was
already to provide the Linz fire service with the best possible equipment and to
revolutionize firefighting. And 150 years later, this remains the objective of
the leading international fire industry group, Rosenbauer. Leading edge vehicles
for municipal, airport and industrial fire services, as well as protective
equipment, fire extinguishing systems, stationary fire protection and telematics
make up the group's full-liner portfolio. Moreover during the past 150 years,
through its innovative strengths Rosenbauer has been able to repeatedly win over
customers around the world and thus establish new technological and design

This ability was exemplified in 1991 with the unveiling of the PANTHER ARFF,
which in the meantime ensures passenger safety at innumerable airports across
the globe. Moreover, the company was already able to demonstrate its innovative
prowess as early as 1871, when its designs for fire service ladders were awarded
prizes, and again in 1910 with the delivery of the first steam pump. In 1950,
the presentation of Europe's first high-pressure water mist extinguishing system
was met with a hugely positive response, as fires could be extinguished far more
quickly with smaller volumes of water. This success was repeated in 1988 with
the debut of the FOX portable pump, which even today remains a highly popular
product among Rosenbauer's customers.  Furthermore, in 1994 Rosenbauer triggered
a genuine design revolution with the AT fire truck. AT is the abbreviation for
aluminum technology and stands for aluminum superstructures, which have made
fire service vehicles far lighter and more flexible.   

A branch trendsetter through innovation  
In the new millennium, Rosenbauer has continued to shine with a diversity of
innovative products and has established itself as the world market leader. In
addition, although the company went public in 1994, sustainable, long-term
development remains the focus of its owning family. A strategy confirmed by CEO
Dieter Siegel: "Our number one priority is to continue to convince our customers
of our inventive capabilities with regard to fire service technology and the
quality of our products. For it is outstanding innovations, which shape the
future of the fire services, that have made us the fire industry trendsetter."  

Nonetheless, it is not only cutting edge products that define Rosenbauer, but
also the reliability that it demonstrates towards its customers. Apart from
quality, this is made evident by a global customer service network that spans
over 100 countries and enables the group to provide maintenance, 24-hour service
and refurbishing, which all serve to guarantee the functionality of both
vehicles and equipment.  

These qualities also emanate from a workforce of about 3,300, which is oriented
towards the multifarious demands of customers. Because although all fire
services have the same objectives, their working methods vary greatly.
Accordingly, in order to be able to serve the North American market, which has
its own separate requirements, in 1995 Rosenbauer dared to venture into the US
market. This bold step has proven to be most fruitful, as evidenced by the fact
that in 2016, over 900 employees at three US locations are contributing to group

In order to be able to supply first class quality and retain market leadership,
Rosenbauer relies on internal group manufacture and retains those elements of
production that have a direct influence upon end product functionality in-house.
In the course of the past 150 years, this has been achieved through the
expansion of production capacity in Austria and thus the creation of some 1,500
jobs in the domestic labor market, as well as the acquisition of specialist
companies around the world. This pattern was demonstrated most recently with the
foundation of a joint venture in Italy, where Rosenbauer Rovereto Srl is now
manufacturing rescue platforms. Moreover, additional production centers in
Germany, Slovenia, Spain, Russia, Singapore, Saudi Arabia and the USA all serve
to ensure the supply of customized products for international fire fighting.   

This concept has paid dividends, as Rosenbauer has loyal customers in over 150
countries. The most northerly of its sales involved a vehicle for Spitzbergen,
while the most southerly resulted in the stationing of a truck in Antarctica. In
fact, international sales have always been a Rosenbauer specialty and if at
first these were limited to Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, by the
1920s Rosenbauer pumps and trucks had already landed in China, Japan and Siam.
Therefore, there can be no doubt that in future Rosenbauer personnel will
continue to be active around the globe, busily convincing customers of the
innovative strength and reliability of the group's products.
