C.D. Magirus AG (until 1935)

 

 

 

 

 

The origin of Magirus is based on a company for the production of fire-brigade equipment which was founded in 1866. Already during WW I, Magirus produced lorries. In 1936, Magirus was taken over by the Humboldt-Deutz AG. Further on, lorries, omnibuses and fire engines were offered under the brand name Magirus. Beginning in 1940, commercial vehicles were offered under the name Klöckner Deutz. The most important lorries made for the Wehrmacht were the type M 206, the Einheits-Diesel and the Henschel type 33 G1 which was manufactured under license. From 1940 to 1944, more than 16,000 exemplars of the 3 tons lorry were manufactured, which proved just as well as the Opel Blitz 3 tons. By the way, a large part of the heavy Magirus lorries were used by fire-brigade units.
Based on the different lorry models, Magirus made chassis for middle and heavy omnibuses. Magirus omnibuses were quite frequent. Often, they originated from the Reichsbahn and Reichspost.
