The Best of Rescue Vehicles

Saurus Oy is a well-respected designer and manufacturer of fire and rescue vehicles.
Rescuers around the world use the vehicles built in Central Finland to do their jobs every day.

When Saurus started its operations under the name of Sammutin Oy in 1948, its product range included equipment from fire hoses to extinguishers. The fire engine factory was established in Säynätsalo, Jyväskylä, in 1982.

Today, Saurus is part of a Finnish group focused on the production of special-purpose vehicles. The group also includes Vema Lift Oy from Kaarina, manufacturer of hydraulic lifting equipment, and Kiitokori Oy from Kausala, which produces bus-based special vehicles.

In addition to rescue authorities in Finland and abroad, the Finnish Defense Forces also puts its faith
in Saurus's skills and know-how.

– Designing and building the Defense Forces's rescue and cleaning vehicle was a multi-year project. The performance requirements, the special paint job and the fail-safe automation systems were all really demanding, says Juhani Härkönen, Managing Director of Saurus Oy, when thinking back on the successfully delivered project.

In addition to being of top quality, the fire and rescue vehicles manufactured by Saurus are also tailored to meet the requirements set by the customers's needs and the environment. Customer- specific tailoring and uncompromising quality have brought in plenty of orders also from abroad.

Saurus's operations are certified according to the ISO 9001: 2015 and the MIL AQAP 2110 standards.

The vehicles are tested under Central Finnish conditions, and they run flawlessly in different corners of the world, regardless of whether the challenge is sweltering heat or heavy snow. There is no room for error in the rescue vehicle business, and the more than 2,000 pieces of equipment delivered around the worl tell their own story about Saurus' reputation as a reliable manufacturer.
