Company Information/Major order


Leonding (euro adhoc) - * Brazil's airports in line to receive 80 PANTHER ARFF
ready for Football World Cup
* Biggest single order for ARFF vehicles in Rosenbauer's history
Rosenbauer, the fire-equipment sector's premier manufacturer, yesterday signed a
contract with Brazil's state-owned airport operator Infraero Aeroportos to
supply 80 PANTHER ARFF, worth 42.9mUSD.

By undertaking this fleet renewal program, Infraero Aeroportos is bringing
fire-protection standards at Brazil's airports right up to date - all the more
important in view of the approaching 2014 Football World Cup and 2016 Summer
Olympics. All the country's international airports, such as Antônio Carlos Jobim
Airport in Rio de Janeiro and Guarulhos Airport in São Paulo, will also benefit
from new equipment as part of this program. This will ensure compliance with the
- increasingly closely monitored - international airport certification
regulations of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation).

The PANTHERs are to be manufactured at the two US plants Rosenbauer Minnesota
and Rosenbauer Motors in Wyoming, MN, with the fire fighting systems being
supplied from the main plant in Leonding. The vehicles are to be supplied and
commissioned in several tranches by January 2014. A prototype is to be handed
over to the client before the end of this year.

The vehicles in question are PANTHER 6x6's with powerful 665 HP Detroit Diesel
engines. They have a top speed of 120 km/h and an extinguishant payload of
12,870 l.

This success testifies yet again to the leading position occupied by the
Rosenbauer Group, which won this international tender thanks to the high
standards of engineering and quality insisted upon by Rosenbauer Minnesota. This
new order marks an important building block on the way towards securing a good
level of basic capacity utilization over the next two years.
