New partnership for hydraulic firefighting and rescue platforms

Published:  21 July, 2016

Rosenbauer International sets up a joint venture with CTE. 

The new company Rosenbauer Rovereto Srl, in which Rosenbauer has a 70% stake, will specialise in the development, production, and service of hydraulic platforms.

CTE manufactures platforms and cranes for diverse applications, selling around 20 to 25 hydraulic platforms to fire departments each year. With its 30 employees, the company recently generated revenues of around €10 million in the firefighting and rescue platform business.

Through this joint venture, Rosenbauer is tapping into an additional sales market for technically sophisticated, high-quality hydraulic platforms, predominantly for the international market. ‘With the forward integration in the firefighting and rescue platform business, Rosenbauer is strengthening its position as a fire equipment provider at an international level,’ said Dieter Siegel, CEO of Rosenbauer International.

Hydraulic platforms have a different technical structure from turntable ladders and achieve larger payloads and greater working heights. With this new partnership, Rosenbauer is aiming to become market leader in hydraulic platforms.
