DAF Trucks has built the first 100,000 new-generation CF and XF models in record time.
The landmark 100,000th DAF XF 450 FT Super Space cab rolled off the company's Eindhoven assembly line just two years after the new-generation models were launched.
The milestone truck was handed over to longtime DAF customer, Belgian operatior Gheys Group, a bulk and container specialist.
"That we have reached this milestone so quickly is a testament to the quality and efficiency of this latest generation of trucks," says DAF Trucks president Harry Wolters.
"Our customers praise the reliability, the fuel efficiency, the low operating costs.... not to mention the unsurpassed driver comfort. No wonder DAF is Europe's number 1 in tractors."
Gheys Group co-owner Luc Gheys says the company's involvement with DAF trucks dates back to the mid-1960s, when his father started out with a DAF coach that had been converted into a removal truck.
"Following on from my father, we have included DAF in our fleet since 2015," he adds, thanks to the company's "excellent" experience with both the trucks and DAF's local dealer.
"That's why we currently have around 80 DAFs in our fleet – and this year we will expand that number further with another 25."
