DAF Trucks has built its new UK Headquarters on the Haddenham Business Park and last week the company held a ceremony to celebrate the official opening of the building.
The £20 million investment in the new headquarters is described by Robin Easton, Managing Director of DAF Trucks, as "a demonstration of the commitment to further strengthen DAF's leading position in the UK market."
The new offices and training centre were officially opened by Mark Pigott, KBE, Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of PACCAR Inc. The ceremony was attended by Simon Smits, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the UK, along with staff from DAF Trucks, Leyland Trucks and PACCAR Financial. They were joined by local dignitaries from Aylesbury Vale District and Haddenham Parish Councils, as well as key representatives from the contractors who designed and built the state-of-the art facility.
The new 4.5-acre, three-story facility includes 50,000 sq.ft. of office space, a sophisticated auditorium and an ultra-modern four-bay workshop that offers world class training facilities for the UK DAF dealers and their employees.
From its new Haddenham location, DAF Trucks will enhance its industry-leading sales, marketing, after market support and vehicle financing for DAF's customers and the 136 DAF Dealers throughout the UK and Ireland.
"DAF has been the UK market leader for 23 consecutive years", said Robin Easton. "With this excellent facility, its dedicated staff and our tremendous truck manufacturing facility in Leyland, I am confident we will further expand this strong position in the United Kingdom."
