G&S Brandschutztechnik AG announces rebranding strategy with new brand name, Rosenbauer Brandschutz Deutschland GmbH. The specialized company for preventive fire protection has been part of the Rosenbauer Group since 2016 and only in the previous year merged SICS Brandschutz GmbH, G&S Brandschutz GmbH, and G&S Sprinkleranlagen GmbH to form a single company. Preventive fire safety expert The former company name is to be continued as a modified label of excellence, G&S Integrated Solutions, and will continue to convey the familiar value and reliability of the products. Owner Ansgar Schmidt resigned from the company on the same date, leaving Rosenbauer manager Hubert Heissl as the sole managing director. "In a three-year intensive phase of integration, we have shaped four companies into a powerful 'player' in the area of preventive fire protection. Now the time has come to communicate this new identity through a harmonization of our brands to the outside," says Hubert Heissl, Managing Director of Rosenbauer Brandschutz Germany. "The name G&S will remain in the form of a new label of excellence and emphasizes the usual quality and competence of our offers and services." Plant fire protection solutions provider Rosenbauer Brandschutz specializes as a full-service provider in plant fire protection for the planning, construction, and maintenance of fixed extinguishing systems. The product portfolio includes systems that are based on water, foam, and compressed air. The product range also offers fire alarm and early fire detection systems, gas extinguishing systems, wall hydrants, mobile CAFS fire extinguishers, and semi-stationary POLY extinguishing systems. Customers range from commercial kitchens, tunnel operators, industrial companies, logistics companies and recycling plants to airports. Rosenbauer Brandschutz achieved sales of € 24.2 million in 2018. Around 180 employees work at the Leonding, Mogendorf, Gladbeck and Hilden sites.
Rosenbauer has expanded in the area of preventive fire protection in recent years - not least through the acquisition of G&S Brandschutztechnik AG, based in Mogendorf in the German federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate in 2016. This is where a fully automatic pipe prefabrication plant was recently put into operation. Environmentally Friendly The plant is fully automated, combines robotics with cutting and welding technology, is extremely flexible, works highly efficiently, and is thus also environmentally friendly. The main beneficiaries are Rosenbauer's customers, says a representative of Rosenbauer Brandschutz Deutschland GmbH: "The new plant enables us to fulfill plant orders more quickly and service our customers even more flexibly." There is almost no scrap or waste with this process, which makes it very resource- and environment-friendly The plant was developed with the company's proprietary know-how. This ensured that the company's high quality requirements were met and that the production sequence for stationary fire protection systems was optimized. "We are now in a position to manufacture pipes flexibly and according to demand", enthuses Ansgar Schmidt. How Pipe Prefabrication Works In detail, this is how pipe prefabrication works: The raw material consisting of pipes with diameters from 1"-10" are inserted into the plant in bundles. In the first step, the pipes are separated and shot-peened. Then they are transported to the next station: endless welding. The pipes are joined through MAG welding, after which they are measured and cut to size. There is almost no scrap or waste with this process, which makes it very resource- and environment-friendly. The next step after welding is pipe-end machining, in which a groove is hydraulically and precisely rolled into the pipe. This facilitates the connection of the pipes during assembly. The respective sleeve (from ½" to 4") is then fitted and welded. Flexibility Of The Plant The pipes are powder-coated by hand according to the customer's color requirements The pipes are subsequently provided with an ID number for unique allocation during assembly, and in the final step they are forwarded to the discharge storage. After processing in the plant, the pipes are powder-coated by hand according to the customer's color requirements, inspected, and packaged according to the assembly sequence. The enormous flexibility of the plant is a great advantage in terms of fulfilling individual customer requirements quickly. Almost all changeover work (e.g. to the respective pipe diameter) is carried out quickly and fully automatically by the machine. And the machine's capacity is also remarkable: up to 500 sleeves can be welded per day. Preventative Fire Protection For Rosenbauer, the development and commissioning of this ultra-modern pipe prefabrication plant is about more than just further raising the all-familiar high production standard. "With the investment in Mogendorf and in preventative fire protection, we are also underscoring our committment to this location and this important segment for the company," Hubert Heissl, Managing Director of Rosenbauer Fire Protection
