MAN to exhibit at RETTmobil for first time


In its first time hosting a display at the RETTmobil Exhibition in Fulda, Munich-based commercial vehicle manufacturer MAN will be showcasing two emergency medical service vehicles based on the TGE van between 15 and 17 May 2019. As market leaders for fire service vehicles in Germany, MAN will also be showing visitors three fire engines based on its TGL and TGM models.

  • MAN to occupy two booths at RETTmobil
  • MAN TGEs to make débuts as mobile intensive care ambulances at Booth 603 in Hall 6 – in both panel van and box truck body designs
  • MAN TGM modified into “group pumping appliance for rescue operations” and MAN TGL into “medium sized pumping appliance”, both Euro 6-compliant for fire brigades, and a “Logistics vehicle with pump” in Euro 5-version at Booth 93
  • Vans, too, will now benefit from body manufacturing expertise acquired over decades

Fire service vehicles based on MAN’s truck chassis have already been a regular fixture among body manufacturers at RETTmobil for some time. This year at the expo in Fulda, Germany, the commercial vehicle manufacturer from Munich will be setting up two of its own booths in Hall 6 (Booth 603) and in the outdoor area (Booth 93) – a first for the company. Expertise in body manufacturing for fire service vehicles has been a part of life at MAN for decades, a fact that will be a central focus of the exhibits. And this specialist knowledge will now also be applied to smaller emergency service vehicles, such as the patient transport ambulance (“KTW”) and mobile intensive care ambulance (“RTW”).

RETTmobil is Europe’s premier exhibition for rescue and mobility products. Around 540 exhibitors from 20 countries took part in last year’s edition of the annual event, with almost 30,000 visitors showing up at the trade fair halls in Fulda. Alongside the exhibition, the event will include a wide-ranging programme of activities for professionals, including training sessions and workshops. It will be in their vicinity that MAN, for the first time, will be showcasing mobile intensive care ambulance versions of its TGE van in Hall 6 – in one case, with a special panel van body from Ambulanz Mobile; in another, with a box truck body from Wietmarscher Ambulanz- und Sonderfahrzeug (WAS). The second exhibit will be located outdoors at Booth 93, where MAN will be presenting its fire engine success stories: the MAN TGL as a “medium sized pumping appliance” (MLF) with a body from Schlingmann, and the MAN TGM as a “group pumping appliance for rescue operations” (HLF 20) with a body from Rosenbauer. Also MAN will be showcasting a Logistics vehicle with pump (LF-Logistik) on MAN TGM with MAN Individual group cab with nine seats. Body from Freytag.
