The Land Transportation Office (LTO) said it has issued the notice of award to Trojan Computer Forms Manufacturing Corporation and J.H. Tonnjes E.A.S.T. GmbH & Co KG Joint Venture; the winning bidder that will produce new license plates.
As mentioned in AutoIndustriya, the license plates will be manufactured locally using imported materials. Initial delivery of new license plates is expected around March 2018.
LTO Chief and Department of Transportation Assistant Secretary Edgar Galvante assured the public that his agency is doing its best to finally resolve the lack of license plates for registered vehicles.
“The LTO assures the public that the agency is doing the best it can, in compliance with existing laws and regulations, to deliver the license plates,” Galvante said in a statement.
House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez on Wednesday, December 6, called for Galvante’s resignation for his failure to provide license plates for registered vehicles.
Alvarez said that during his stint as transportation secretary under the administration of then president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, he found the issuance of license plates an easy matter to resolve.
