At DAF, we feel proud of every DAF truck that leaves our factory. Because we know we’ve delivered a truck that enables the customer to drive his business. Because we know the driver will appreciate its unequalled comfort and handling. Our love for trucks goes into every part and detail. That’s what separates a DAF from any other truck.
DAF in the United Kingdom
DAF Trucks was established in the UK almost fifty years ago. In our first year we registered just 74 vehicles, a far cry from the 12,000 new DAF vehicles registered here in a typical year, today.
DAF is an environmental leader, offering a full range of fuel efficient and ultra-clean diesel engines meeting the most stringent emission standards. DAF was among the first European truck manufacturers to comply with the ISO 14001 standard for environmental care. All production facilities have achieved ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’. Thanks to the application of the latest and highly sophisticated technologies, DAF’s new and ultra-modern cab paint facility in Westerlo, Belgium is the latest example of how DAF leads the way in environmental care and stewardship.
