“My grandfather would be proud of me”

  

My grandfather Willem van Ham had his own one-man transport company and always drove a DAF or DAF GINAF. He worked long hours but was also a real family man. He always used to greet me by shouting my name and giving me a big, warm and welcoming hug.

When I started working at DAF my mother gave me a little toy truck to remember him by and I still keep it on my desk. Now, as a supervisor, I try to live up to his principles and take care of those in my charge. By doing so I believe my grandfather would be proud of his grandson. The grandson who works at the company who provided him with the trucks that allowed him to care for his family.
