Information about DAF

DAF, an iconic name in the automotive industry, started its journey in Eindhoven, Netherlands, in 1928. Founded by Hub van Doorne, initially as a small engineering shop and blacksmith workshop, it evolved into the Van Doorne’s Aanhangwagen Fabriek (DAF), translating to “Van Doorne’s Trailer Factory”. The company’s automotive legacy began with the DAF 600 in 1959, which was ingeniously designed to cater to the needs of post-war consumers looking for reliable and affordable transportation. This model was celebrated for introducing the Variomatic, the first continuously variable transmission (CVT), showcasing DAF’s pioneering spirit in automotive engineering.

Transitioning through the decades, DAF’s focus shifted significantly from passenger cars to become a distinguished name in the commercial vehicle sector. Today, DAF Trucks plays a vital role in the global transportation industry, renowned for its high-quality, durable trucks and innovative technology. Despite the cessation of its passenger car production in the late 1970s after being acquired by Volvo Cars, DAF Trucks continues to flourish, maintaining a strong presence in Europe and beyond. The brand’s commitment to excellence and innovation remains evident, as it constantly adapts to the evolving demands of the transport industry, ensuring reliability and efficiency in logistics and freight solutions.
