Commercial vehicle production January 2008
"UK bus, truck, and van production hit its best January since 1990, following a strong performance through 2007. The rolling-year total was the highest since 1998 and is forecast to continue throughout 2008," said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive.
"Environmental issues remain a priority and Leyland Trucks factory's recent 'Zero waste to Landfill' achievement is an example of sustainable production in action."
