 Magirus facts


  • The company began manufacturing fire-fighting vehicles in 1866
  • In the late 1910s, it started the production of trucks and buses
  • These vehicles developed a reputation for high engineering standards, able to operate under the most arduous conditions
  • The company also invented the turntable ladder, as Magirus Leiter, which quickly became an essential item of fire brigade equipment worldwide
  • The parent company was Klöckner Humboldt Deutz AG, maker of the well-known Deutz engines, so the brand commonly used was Magirus Deutz, and for a short time Klöckner
  • The logo of Magirus Deutz was a stylised M with a sharp, long center point to represent the tower of the Ulm Cathedral
  • In 1975, Magirus became part of Iveco which continued producing some Magirus trucks for a short while under the name "Iveco Magirus" before abandoning it completely in most countries
  • KHD's collaboration with Fiat ended abruptly and less than harmoniously in 1979, leaving Fiat as owner of the Magirus-Deutz brand
  • However, Iveco trucks were sold under the Magirus brand in Germany and other European and Middle Eastern markets until the end of the 1980s
  • Today, the Magirus brand is only used for the company's firefighting equipment section, not for the whole fleet of manufactured trucks
