10,000th Taiwan-made truck
In Dadu, Taiwan, the 10,000th locally assembled DAF truck has rolled off the assembly line just three years after production of the 5,000th vehicle.
The jubilee truck was ordered by Yong Yuan Transport. It is a CF 480 tractor unit which will be used to transport gravel and concrete all around Taiwan.
Since 2005, every week, DAF Trucks has been shipping components for the popular LF and CF series from its factories in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) and Leyland (UK) to Taiwan, where its partner, the Formosa Plastics Group, currently 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. (ben)
