2014 Export Awards Series: Rosenbauer International AG

5. August 2014

Since 1994 the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy have been presenting Export Awards to Austrian companies for their exceptional success on international markets. This year the special "Global Player Award" went to Rosenbauer International AG.

In the past 25 years Rosenbauer has developed into one of the world’s leading manufacturers of fire fighting equipment. The first fire fighting vehicles were exported as early as the 1920s – they went to China. Today the Group’s fire engines can be found in around 150 countries. Production takes place at 16 sites in Europe (including four in Austria), as well as America and Asia. Optimal customer service is provided through an international distribution and service network.

The fire fighting equipment manufacturer already generates 92% of Group revenue on international markets. The most important foreign markets are Europe (39%), Arabic countries (30%), North America (14%) and Asia/Oceania (10%). A major order from Saudi Arabia (including a follow-up order in 2014) for almost 2,000 fire engines and a total volume of EUR 400m has contributed, among others to the full order books.

Every year the “Global Player Award” recognises companies which have achieved an exceptionally strong position on the global market, have a comprehensive international network and are also pioneers in an industry or country.
