DAF Trucks and PACCAR
DAF realized strong performance in 2017
DAF Trucks had strong performance around the world in 2017. DAF’s European (EU+2) market share in the heavy segment (16 tons+) was at a level of 15.3%, and in the light segment it increased to 10.5%. In addition, a record number of over 9,000 DAF trucks was registered outside Europe and PACCAR engines sales to leading coach and bus manufacturers reached a new record.
PACCAR has been continuously profitable since 1938. PACCAR’s consistent profits and strong cash flow enable the company to invest in its core markets while expanding its presence in emerging markets. PACCAR is well-positioned for long-term growth with investments in new state-of-the-art DAF, Kenworth and Peterbilt vehicles, durable PACCAR engines, innovative aftermarket parts and service capabilities, factory enhancements, and truck technologies that increase vehicle fuel-efficiency and reliability.
