Z-Class confirmed on UK market following AFOA event postponement

Venari Group has announced that the Ziegler Group Z-Class ARFFV is now available to the UK’s aviation firefighting sector, despite the postponement of the Airport Fire Officers’ Association (AFOA) conference, where it was set to be revealed to the UK’s top airport fire officers.

Venari, exclusive UK partners with Ziegler Group, has announced that the technologically advanced Z-Class is now available to British and Irish airports following its global launch on 17th September. The vehicle was originally due to launch for the first time in the UK as part of the Airport Fire Officer’s Association (AFOA)’s annual general meeting on 6th October at Venari headquarters, but it was postponed due to increasing COVID-19 restrictions.

The Z-Class is the latest evolution in air crash truck production from Ziegler Group, which is set to raise the bar in terms of both frontline firefighting and firefighter safety.

Venari Group CEO, Oliver North, commented: “The global unveiling of the new Z-Class on 17th September provided the aviation firefighting sector with reassurance that the bar can be, and is still being, raised, in a market which has craved this level of progression for such a long time. After supplying countless ARFFV’s into countless major UK airports, I genuinely believe the new Z-Class provides the step up which has been desired for the past five years.

“With unrivalled speed, the highest certified level of crash protection for the firefighter, a pump and roll capability at any speed, the single most ergonomically refined operation which I’ve ever seen, all packaged together with the most striking aesthetics for a firefighting truck – the Z-Class is, as far as I’m concerned, now seated at the throne as the ARFF to beat.

“The coronation has unfortunately but understandably been delayed, but the Z-Class is very much here and ready to raise the bar for the British aviation firefighting market.”
