Another 'A' of the Scottish motor industry

I was brought up in Dumfries, and at my present age of 57, I am fascinated by the background of the Arrol Aster factory in Heathall, near Dumfries. The Americans took over the factory when I was a young man, and the factory was always a 'closed book' to younger people.
I left the town 40 years ago and I have no idea how the factory ended up, although I believe it became a simple tyre factory.
Since a car crash 18 months ago typing is still difficult but I managed to struggle through with the help of my wife.
Any information on how things worked out for Heathall?
