Albert Ziegler GmbH, headquartered in Giengen/Brenz, Germany, has again been awarded with the order of up to 32 additional LF 20 KatS for the state of Thuringia within the framework of a Europe-wide contract award procedure. This is the third series in a row that the state of Thuringia is procuring from ZIEGLER. Since 2016, ZIEGLER has already built 27 LF 20 KatS for various civil protection units in Thuringia.
Overview of orders placed so far by the State of Thuringia to ZIEGLER:
- 2016: 8 firefighting vehicles LF 20 KatS on MAN chassis
- 2017: 7 firefighting vehicles LF 20 KatS on MAN chassis
- 2021: 12 firefighting vehicles LF 20 KatS on MAN chassis
- 2022: 22 firefighting vehicles LF 20 KatS on MAN chassis (with the option for up to 32 vehicles)
The superstructure and the operating system are each designed with the latest generations of ALPAS and Z-Control. The ZIEGLER portable pump is stored in a space-saving lower compartment, which enables a favourable centre of gravity as well as quick and ergonomic removal.
At the same time, ZIEGLER is already manufacturing seven TLF for forest firefighting on Unimog chassis for Thuringia. This means that ZIEGLER will continue to be strongly represented with its products in the state of Thuringia in the future. Area sales manager Thomas Grözinger says: ‘After the last major project about 23 equipment vehicles, which ZIEGLER delivered two years ago, the ZIEGLER team is now looking forward to the delivery of up to 32 new LF 20 KatS for the disaster control units in Thuringia.’
In addition, in a separate award, the contract for the equipment of all the new (2022 contract) LF 20 KatS for the state of Thuringia was placed with ZIEGLER. This means that everything from the chassis to the equipment comes from a single source.
