Part of the Truck and Bus division of British Leyland Motor Corporation
The company concentrated on exploring the use of gas turbines in heavy trucks.
1968 Announced a 350/400 hp 6-wheeled heavy lorry powered by a gas turbine. It was intended that it should go into production in 1970. The gas turbine weighed half of that of an equivalent diesel engine
1968 Launch of the T.J.125 turbo-jet engine 
1969 Exhibited the gas turbine powered-lorry
1972 Loaned 3 road tankers powered by gas turbines to oil companies but they suffered from component problems, particularly heat exchanger failures, and within 2 years had all been withdrawn.
1974 The schedule for bringing the gas-turbine powered truck into production was slowed down because of the need to develop a version of the engine operating at higher temperature, which would need new materials. The company was closed; development work would continue as part of the new central R&D programme in British Leyland
