Development, Engineering & Manufacturing

Every employee is involved to make sure that every day more than 200 trucks are produced. This requires quality and reliability, but also continuous improvement. We do that according to our PACCAR Production System (PPS). Do you dare to be part of continuous progress? 



More than 900 engineers work within Product Development to optimize, develop and test our current and future trucks, engines and components. Various specialists in the fields of automotive, mechanical engineering, electronics, safety, hydraulic systems, engines, aerodynamics and materials science are committed to developing the truck of the future. This is all done in cooperation with the PACCAR technical Centers in the United States and Great Britain. The latest technologies are used in a high-tech environment, with the aim of maximizing efficiency, optimum reliability and leading performance. Of course with the lowest possible impact on the environment.

Quality, knowledge and expertise are central to Product Development. Taking initiative is highly appreciated. An ideal work environment to broaden and deepen your career.
