Sites

By 1973, Leyland Australia employed nearly 6,000 people and occupied many sites around Australia. The size of the Company was comparable to that of many country towns and was served by several staff newspapers beginning with the BMC Reporter, the Review, the BMC Rosette, and lastly, the Leyland City Times. The company had various sites located around the country, from the large production plant at Zetland in Sydney, to smaller state offices. The accompanying document shows the addresses of the sites and offices as of 1977. The Heritage Group has amassed a large number of documents and photos of the sites and activities of the Company.
