        Seems like you answered your own question then.

        E-One is the only company that sells the Bronto in the U.S.. When AIP took over E-One from Federal Signal, Federal Signal also lost any rights and control of the Bronto.

          Federal Signal held on to Bronto even though they sold E-One. They may be exclusive only to E-One as far as for the fire service market in North America, but they still belong to Federal Signal.

            Thanks for the info. I stand corrected.

            Doesn't really make sense, but I understand.

              I agree it doesn't make any sense. My guess it they're a lot bigger company than people think, given their business NOT relating to fire. The folks that bought E-One probably couldn't afford what the Bronto line is valued.

                It makes tons of sense when a single utility company has bought more Brontos than the entire US fire service.

                  Apparently the Bronto folks (in Finland) are a bit hard to work with. But at least don't have to send the entire chassis to Euro to have the boom installed by "hardworking" europeans (Rosy aerial). That's idiotic.

                    At least the installation is done the way they want it and they can guarantee the quality of the workmanship.

                      And they get the added benefit of looking down upon us lowly Americans whom they deem incapable of doing it themselves as they take our money.

                        Whoa, just noticed the last part of that quote. Don't they guarantee the quality of workmanship for their American made stuff?

                          Was at E-One this past September. There were 7 Bronto boom's sitting in the yard waiting to have the chassis' finished to be installed on.
                          "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

                            I spoke with a guy last week that said some of those had been sitting around for several years.
