Magirus and Alpha Robotics have entered into a long-term partnership agreement for the development of intelligent products, in the field of firefighting and BOS.
After the very successful cooperation so far, Magirus and Alpha Robotics have decided to further intensify the cooperation and to set it up for the long term. The cooperation focuses on the new area of Intelligent Fire Fighting Technology (IFT).
Magirus - Alpha Robotics partnership
The future tasks and challenges in the field of firefighting, disaster control or rescue have changed significantly worldwide, especially in recent years and will even increase further, in the future. At the same time, new technologies will significantly expand the possibilities of mission support.
The agreed partnership is an essential step towards preparing for future challenges
The agreed partnership is an essential step towards preparing for future challenges, in the best possible way and realizing Magirus’ leadership claim in the development of new generations of firefighting technologies.
This will be possible with a clear focus on the best possible operational support for fire brigades, through more intelligent vehicles and systems, with the simplest operability, highest functionality and reliability.
Robotics and AI in firefighting technology
Marc Diening, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Magirus, said “The firefighting industry will experience some revolutionary developments, in the next decade and robotics and AI will play an important role. Leading this change requires the best people, which are not always all inside your own company.”
Marc Diening adds, “Partnering with Alpha Robotics, a company of excellent spirit and competence, which is sharing the passion, entrepreneurship and customer orientation that Magirus lives, since it was founded by Conrad Dietrich Magirus, will ensure that we will be leading the way, in providing the best intelligent equipment to our customers, in the years to come.”
Developing intelligent products
"We are very much looking forward to the future long-term cooperation and partnership with Magirus,” said Oliver Rasche, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Alpha Robotics.
The past months, since the beginning of the cooperation, have been formative for the future"
Oliver Rasche adds, “The past months, since the beginning of the cooperation, have been formative for the future. With great expertise, accompanied by passion and motivation, highly innovative products for the firefighting market have been further developed and brought to implementation. In this way, we will be able to jointly meet the increasingly complex challenges in the future that fire brigades are facing worldwide.”
New generation of firefighting technology
The partnership is an essential building block for a new generation of firefighting technology, which Magirus presented in Ulm, on June 23 and 24, 2021, as an outlook.
The aim of the partnership is to develop networked, intelligent technologies that enable target-oriented decisions, on operational tactics and operational measures, to be made within the shortest possible time, even in complex situations, and ensure permanent operational readiness, through information transparency.
This new generation of firefighting technology at Magirus is being developed to considerably reduce the workload of all forces, in order to let them focus on the task at hand, increase the safety of the operating personnel and reduce the administrative workload.
