10,000th DAF Truck Built in Taiwan
The 10,000th locally assembled DAF truck has rolled off the assembly line in Dadu in Taiwan just three years after production of the 5,000th vehicle. With a market share of almost 37% in the 12 ton+ segment, DAF is the undisputed market leader among non-Asian truck brands on the island. The company’s success in Taiwan is expected to further expand thanks to the recent introduction of the new Euro 6 truck series.
Since 2005, every week, DAF Trucks has been shipping components for the popular LF and CF series from its factories in Eindhoven and Leyland to Taiwan, where its partner, the Formosa Plastics Group, nowadays assembles five to six DAF trucks per day on a recently completely modernised production line. All these vehicles are powered by reliable and efficient Euro 6 PACCAR engines.
