BMC (Turkey) - Takeover


In 1989 the company was fully acquired by the Çukurova Group of Turkey. From that moment on, BMC started to produce its own indigenous product line which is independent from the other major manufacturers.

In 1996 BMC started the production of the Profesyonel series, which are produced in Turkey and (since 2004) under licence in Iran.

BMC also produces buses as part of the Belde series (since 1993) and Probus series.

Since 2000, BMC exports trucks and buses to numerous countries around the world. When exports to the United Kingdom began in 2003, this marked the return to the UK of the BMC brand name, not seen on British roads since the 1960s.

MegaStar 2.8 L is built in İzmir (Turkey) by the BMC and production started in 2004. 10 versions of the vehicle are available with 2 different engines, with power ratings of 83 and 95 kW and manual transmission.

Famous quotes containing the word takeover:

    A poet is a combination of an instrument and a human being in one person, with the former gradually taking over the latter. The sensation of this takeover is responsible for timbre; the realization of it, for destiny.
    Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)
