It's not always the shortest path that leads to the goal.
Those who only look straight ahead rarely see a revolutionary innovation. No one knows that better than our turntable ladder developers. Consistently thinking outside the box led them to a brilliant new solution in the early 1990s: MAGIRUS articulated arm technology. A quantum leap for fire brigades; greater safety for the public. And for us? A huge success – but absolutely no reason for complacency. In 2000 we developed the CS control system, in 2005 the articulated arm with telescope, in 2010 a completely new high-performance extension technology. And in 2012, we brought out the highest articulated arm turntable ladder in the world, with a working height of 42 m.
And in the future? As active fire-fighters, we are always discovering what improvements need to be made. And as passionate lateral thinkers, we find the best solutions.
