Vamco, a vehicle axle manufacturing company, was established on January 20, 1988, to produce and assemble front and rear axles for diesel vehicles. The establishment was financed by the Bank of Industry and Mine. For this project, representatives of the bank held negotiations with companies such as Benz (Germany), Mann (Germany), Raba (Hungary), Volvo (Sweden), Iveco (Italy), Eaton (England), GKN (England), Steyr (Austria), and Krupp (Germany). Only Volvo, Iveco, and Benz responded positively to the negotiations. In late June 1988, following numerous negotiations between the Organization for Industrial and Mining Development and relevant companies, it was agreed that the Development Organization would also be involved in this project through related companies. Eventually, the share composition of the Vehicle Axle Manufacturing Company consisted of 89.3% Iran Khodro, 3.2% Iran Khodro Diesel, and 7.5% others. In 1990, after the negotiations, the Development Organization proposed a change in share distribution, suggesting 75% for the organization and 25% for the bank. However, due to the bank’s opposition and disagreements arising from a lack of understanding, the project was halted in the same year.
