ZIEGLER hands over the first 4 TLF forest firefighting vehicles on Unimog chassis to the state of Thuringia
Ziegler Feuerwehrgerätetechnik GmbH & Co. KG, based in Mühlau, Saxony, manufactured four TLF forest firefighting vehicles for the state of Thuringia. In the course of the year, the delivery of three additionally commissioned vehicles of the same type will take place.
Overview of orders placed to date by the State of Thuringia within ZIEGLER Group:
- 2016: 8 firefighting vehicles LF 20 KatS on MAN chassis
- 2017: 7 firefighting vehicles LF 20 KatS on MAN chassis

The superstructure (ALPAS) and the operating concept (Z-Control) are of the latest generation. The loadings of all 7 TLF for the federal state of Thuringia are also supplied by ZIEGLER. Thus, everything from the chassis to the load comes from one source.
With the above procurements, the state of Thuringia invests with a foresight to help fast when natural disasters such as forest fires or floods occur and therefore equipped the fire departments with additional special vehicles and equipment.
Udo Götze, State Secretary for the Interior and the Head of Office at the Thuringian Ministry of the Interior was also on-site in Mühlau for the official handover. There, he was able to see the design and performance features of the vehicles for himself.
Project manager Florian Patz says: “It was a constructive and great collaboration with the customer and the result is something to be proud of. Simple, user-friendly technology for extreme situations and the daily business of the fire departments!”
