DAF Trucks – Dutch Innovation Since 1928
DAF was founded in 1928 by Hubert van Doorne and A.H. Huenges, a local business owner. Huenges’ had used the services of van Doorne on several occasions to fix his car. He was so impressed with his engineering skills he put forward an offer of investment, creating a business which the two of them would run together.
From this start-up business grew the Van Doorne’s Aanhangwagen Fabriek or Van Doorne’s Trailer Factor, more simply known as DAF. By 1936 Huenges had parted ways with the company and Hubert was now in business with his brother Wim.
The two would go on to design a range of innovative vehicles, with the name DAF still being world renowned today. Now, with the assistance of Truck Locator you can easily locate one and take it out for a test drive today.
