Reinforcing the role of the Turkish factory as a production hub serving domestic, European and global markets (50-150hp), some of the spend was on a new 10,000m² production building (total covered area now 27,360m².

There is also an additional paint shop, new transmission assembly line and test bench, new spare parts warehouse and a new training centre.

Bandirma is one of six SDF tractor plants. The others are at Treviglio, Italy (70-170hp); Lauingen, Germany (120-440hp); Ranipet, India (30-80hp); Suihua, China ( >200hp) and Linshu, China (25-270hp).
