Archive : BLMC to spread £3m in Turkey

British Leyland’s associate company in Turkey, BMC Sanayi, is spending £3m to increase output of lorries, vans and tractors. It already dominates the Turkish commercial vehicle market, accounting for more than 50 per cent of all sales.

Most of the money is going on a new foundry to remove a production bottleneck in engine castings. It will double the 8,370 vehicles sold in 1973. Manufacture of the Land-Rover, at the rate of 1,000 a year, will begin in March.
