Original manufacturer of water pumps for the classic Land Rover vehicles holds a celebration day at it’s works in wales where the whole story started – and everyone is invited!
Conceived in 1947 by Maurice Wilks, who drew inspiration from the ex-army Willys Jeep he used for farm work, the initial drawing for the Land Rover Defender was made in the sand at Red Wharf Bay, Wales, and 68 years later the last Land Rover Defender rolled off the production line.
Keeping with the Welsh connection, Mark Water Pumps Ltd based in Colwyn Bay, Wales has a long history in producing Land Rover parts, having produced the OE water pump for the Defender over a 16-year period from 1990 to 2006 and providing the aftermarket with a wide range of Land Rover water pumps through our Pro Flow range to this day.
Land Rover Day Saturday 2nd September 2017
To celebrate its history with Land Rover Mark Water Pumps Limited will be hosting an off-road meet at its site in Colwyn Bay, Wales. All Land Rover enthusiasts are welcome for a factory tour, local off-road routes (weather dependent), Land Rover suppliers, free bacon sandwiches and tea, plus branded giveaways.
