The Ground Transit and Transportation Authority (ATTT) is analyzing the possibility of acquiring, through a direct contract, the services of a German company called the Tonnjes Group to make vehicle license plates for 2011. Jorge Ricardo Fabrega, the Director of the ATTT, said this moves comes because the Chapala Vocational School was late in realizing the public bidding process for the procurement of the raw materials required for the manufacture of the license plates. The official explained that in February 2010, the ATTT issued the resolution that established the model of the license plate that will be used, and the document was delivered to Chapala to initiate the work of manufacturing the plates. So far, said Fabrega, nothing has been delivered. According to the director of the ATTT, he met twice with executives from Chapala to check on the progress of the work, without receiving specific answers – and the center now faces problems with suppliers.
Faced with this situation, the official said, it was decided to seek another company to ensure delivery of the plates starting on 2 January 2011. The Tonnjes Group is a company that has been operating in Panama since 2006, when it built a manufacturing plant which distributes license plates throughout Latin America. Fabrega said the company has the capacity to make up to 30,000 license plates per day.

Asked about the issue, a representative of the board of Chapala said they preferred not to make a comment. They said that “at the opportune time” they would hold a press conference to make their version of the story public. The 2010 plates also were not made by Chapala because no one participated in the public bidding process. What’s more, the ATTT was delayed in issuing the resolution to determine the details of the manufacture of the plates. (La Prensa)
