DAF Trucks' New Venture

DAF Trucks 01

DAF Trucks are in the process of building new head quarters, based on the Haddenham Business Park. Marketing Manager Phil Moon offers the following introduction to the company:

"Work has now started on our new office facility which will become the Marketing and Sales headquarters for the UK and Ireland, moving our entire workforce from their current site in Thame.

The building will be just over 50000 sq ft in area across three floors with plenty of parking for the occasions when all of the 180 staff working on site come to the office. This will however, be a relatively rare occurrence as approximately 50 of our staff are field based.

Included in the building will be a training suite where we will teach members of our 130 strong dealer network all about our products — how to sell them and how to repair them — a café and an auditorium where we will be able to hold seminars with our customers to promote our products and services.

We are very happy to be staying in the area — only moving 4 miles from our current premises in Thame — and excited that our company is investing over £15m in totally new premises for the staff.

DAF is the market leader for heavy truck sales in the UK with nearly 1 in 3 vehicles sold being one of ours. We are very proud that we have been market leader in the UK for over 20 years and hope that the new offices will help us continue with this level of success.

Work on the building shell is due to be complete by Christmas after which the internal work will start along with completion of the parking and landscaped areas. We plan to move in during July 2018."
