VOLVO TRUCKS •(Great Britain) is to re-apply next
year for classification by the Society Of Motor Manufacturers and Traders as a British commercial vehicle manufacturer.
Speaking last week at the Scottish Motor Show, man
aging director Berm Brandtzaeg said: "We feel we have been most unfairly treated. How can you be regarded as non-British when more than 50 per cent of the product content is British?"
lie also disclosed that FL6 models may be built at Irvine in the future. "It is not out of the question. If we had a big order from an operator who wanted British-built FL6s we could make them there."
At present all FL6 models are built at Volvo's Ghent plant in Belgium.
