The latest production technologies at DAF Trucks
DAF utilizes the innovative PACCAR Production System (PPS) in its manufacturing operations. In DAF’s engine factory, employees receive standardized work instructions on PC workstations. Robots are used to enhance assembly accuracy and factory ergonomics.

Ultramodern CNC-controlled machines and welding robots have been installed at the Westerlo cab and axle factory to continuously improve quality. The Leyland assembly plant is a highly modern facility producing the DAF LF series, as well as CF and XF models.

DAF Dealer Organisation
DAF has about 1,000 representatives in Europe and beyond, consisting of DAF Dealers™ and DAF Service Partners™ (many of whom do both). One-stop shopping is the principle in that case, meaning you you can find everything you need for your fleet at one address, whether it be buying a new or used truck, financing, maintenance and repair contracts, parts and accessories, or maintenance and repair of related equipment and components like tail lifts, cooling aggregates and cranes.
DAF Dealers™ are geared towards the sale of new and used vehicles. The sales people are transport consultants, who use the most modern software and vast knowledge and experience to determine precisely the specifications required for a specific use. Once a vehicle’s specifications are finished, it is ordered directly from DAF in Eindhoven. After that, information is always available on-line regarding the status and delivery time of the vehicle ordered.
DAF Service Partners™
DAF Service Partners™ are at the ready to help you with everything to do with maintenance and repair. They have the most advanced DAVIE diagnostic equipment and highly qualified service staff. They can help you with the maintenance and repair of other truck makes, as well. As part of the ‘TRP Programme’, DAF Service Partners™ stock universal parts. Even if you handle maintenance of your fleet yourself, your DAF dealer is the partner for you. Not just for supply of DAF parts, but also for your workshop consumables and tools and parts for trailers, tail lifts and body.
