In 1975, Iveco was founded by the merger of five companies: Fiat Veicoli Industriali, OM, Lancia Veicoli Speciali, Unic and Magirus. In the following year, plants in Foggia and Valle Ufita became operative. They produce diesel engines and buses respectively. In the 1980s and 1990s, the company has been expanded a lot. It has co-operated with companies worldwide, such as Nanjing Motor Co. in China, Koc Group in Turkey, Pegaso in Spain, Ashok Leyland in India and Uralaz in Russia. In Hong Kong, neither of the franchised operators has opted Iveco buses, but coaches like 391.12.29 were used in the territory in small numbers. CFM Management Ltd had once owned the only Daily 50C15 for minibus service in Hong Kong. People's liberation Army also operate some Nanjing license-built Turbodaily 40.10s for transportation of soldiers.
