Daf Trucks NV is a Dutch truck manufacturing company and a division of Paccar. Its headquarters and main plant are in Eindhoven, and its cabs and axle assemblies are produced at its Westerlo plant in Belgium. Some of the truck models sold with the Daf brand are designed and built in England.
Originally started in 1928 as a small car garage by Hubert van Doorne. By 1949 the company had grown considerably, and started making trucks, with the first model being the Daf A30. Although it continued to design and sell cars, including unusual belt-driven vehicles, it sold this division off to Volvo in 1975, to concentrate on its successful line of trucks.
In 1987 Daf merged with Leyland Trucks, and traded in the UK under the name Leyland Daf, but under Daf elsewhere. Daf NV went bankrupt in 1993, and reappeared as Daf Trucks after a management buy-out. In 1996 the company was acquired by Paccar , who also absorbed Leyland Trucks in 1998.
