Lyons, SD - December 19, 2011 - Rosenbauer, the fire-equipment industry's leading manufacturer, has won an order from the Saudi Arabian Ministry of the Interior to supply fire engineering equipment worth a total of $318.8 million US. 1,125 vehicles are to be supplied, of various types and for various operational purposes, as are boats and other civil defense equipment.
Due to the rapid increase in the Kingdom's population over the past few decades, it has been decided to launch an additional expansion program for the fire protection sector. This will involve building and fitting out 180 new fire-stations, mainly in urban areas. As well as this, some 6,000 extra firemen have been recruited and are currently undergoing training.
