Thanks. Most of our fleet have 999 number plates. We have different licensing laws on the Island and our plates don't have to meet the same criteria as the DVLA in England.

Can you / anyone introduce us some company that are using this Bronto structure and make comple vehicle. And also some other company that make similar product of Bronto?

Jamzar, if i understand your question correctly: Builders are plenty; Angloco, Rosenbauer, E-One, Saurus... And pretty much any local builder.
Another company similar to bronto is vema ( - smaller but has sold worldwide as well.
