Hi Ray, I purchased a simular vehicle(Michelin)in red livery some years ago.It had the Michelin Man and a placard across the roof and all it says was it was made by a company called Altaya.I've never heard of this company, any information please on this manufacturer.
I removed the Michelin Man, placard, tranfers, etc and its now a French Fire Appliance-looks nice.

Pete, Altaya is one of the trading names for IXO and they are quite common throughout Europe. They currently have a series running on Route Bleu (Blue Route) which has quite a variety of vehicles all in 1:43rd scale covering French, Italian and even English vehicles. I will shortly being adding some photos to the site as they come in set Dioramas with scale figures and accessories which are quite useful for other applications.
