DAF invests 100 million euros in Belgian factory

DAF Trucks invests 100 million euros in a new paint shop for her cabin factory in the Belgian Westerlo. According to the truck builder it will be the state-of-the-art paint shop for truck cabins in the world. Beginning 2017 the first new cabins will leave the, 25,000 m2 large paint shop.

DAF CEO Harrie Schippers: "the new paint shop is necessary in order to achieve our plans to grow both within and outside Europe." DAF expects the demand for trucks in Europe to grow further in the coming years and foresees to expand her market share in the heavy class to 20%.

In 1966 DAF opened its new factory in Westerlo, where since the early 1970s -in addition to cabins- also their own axles are manufactured. Currently the 2,150 workers construct about 500 shafts and 200 cabins per day, for use in the heavy and medium duty trucks in Eindhoven and the British Leyland.
