Ready for the future, just like our DAF trucks!
In 1952, Garage Lavrijsen became the very first DAF dealer in Belgium. How does a 65-year-old garage ahead with the times?
Garage Lavrijsen is the very first DAF dealer in Belgium. Since 1952 the company is already active in the Flemish town of Geel. Now, more than 65 years later, state-of-the art premises equipped with the most sustainable techniques welcome the customers on the site where everything started.
"We still use the old building. We now use it as storage ", says Jules Lavrijsen, director and grandson of the founder of the same name. Two years ago the construction of the new building was completed. "New premises were really necessary. Both in terms of sustainability and space, the old building fell short. Now we are ready to continue our business for many years, thanks to the brand new LED lighting, 248 solar panels on the roof and the energy neutral heat pump. Ready for the future, just like our sustainable DAF trucks! "Jules Lavrijsen says with pride.
