Bristol Fire announced the establishment of a new 30,000m2 manufacturing plant in Abu Dhabi yesterday. The plant has created forty five new jobs.

The company has a partnership with leading German manufacturer Ziegler and two of their vehicles featured on the Bristol fire stand.
The multi-million dollar investment in Abu Dhabi reflects the need for world class vehicles manufactured in the region.

We are already winning significant orders for fire fighting vehicles and ambulances and see further expansion in the next year.”
