Company wins order from Saudi Arabia
Vol. 27 Spring 2012
Rosenbauer has won the biggest order in its history, from the Saudi Arabian Ministry of the Interior, to supply 1,125 vehicles as part of an expansion of the kingdom's fire service that also involves building 180 new fire stations, mainly in urban areas, and recruiting 6,000 additional firefighters.
Besidens water tankers built to European standards, the contract comprises pumpers and rescue vehicles manufactured to U.S. standards. In addition, heavy recovery vehicles, aerial ladders, boats and hydraulic rescue equipment have been ordered.
"We are very excited about this opportunity," said Harold Boer, president of Rosenbauer America. "This order will keep us producing at full capacity through 2014 and will also bring many new job opportunities for our division."
