Company Information/Production enlargement

Leonding (euro adhoc) - Rosenbauer, a leading manufacturer of fire engineering
equipment, is expanding
its production capacity in Austria. In May 2013, Rosenbauer will be taking over
the plant site formerly occupied by the Wacker Neuson company, and turning it
into an additional production facility. This is part of a wider program to
expand production space at its Austrian facilities, with which the company is
sending out a strong, upbeat signal to the whole region.

Located only 3 km away from the main plant in Leonding, the new facility (Plant
2) has infrastructure that is ideal for Rosenbauer. Apart from its proximity to
the main plant, another factor in favour of this site was its availability at
such short notice.
 
Plant 2 comprises 15,000 m² of industrial buildings and approx. 5,000 m² of
office space, on a 52,000 m² plot. This represents an addition of around 60
percent to the existing production space at the Leonding main plant.As part of a
production-space planning process being carried out across all facilities, the
production areas are now also being restructured. In future, airport rescue fire
fighting vehicles, prime among them the top-of-the-range model PANTHER, and the
municipal vehicle AT will be made in Plant 2. This new production facility is
planned to be gradually put into service from the 3rdquarter of 2013 onwards.
Rosenbauer will be investing a total of 15.6 mEUR at its Austrian facilities
(Leonding and Neidling) this year. This will also have the effect of assuring
further employment in the region. Rosenbauer currently employs around 1100
people in Leonding.
 

Rosenbauer has been manufacturing technologically sophisticated apparatus for
fire services for more than 100 years. Fire fighting vehicles and their
centrepieces - the fire fighting systems and components - are developed and
manufactured for national and international markets at the main plant in
Leonding. Despite the severe downturns in certain markets, Rosenbauer last year
managed to maintain its growth trajectory, boosting its revenues by nearly 20%
year-on-year. Record revenues are also expected for the ongoing financial year.
"By adding this extra production capacity, we are taking another step along the
road to future growth and are better equipped to handle major orders, which call
for additional manufacturing capacity", notes Dr. Dieter Siegel, Chairman of the
Executive Board of Rosenbauer International AG.
