Daf Trucks in the UK has had a record breaking year in 2007 with 30% more orders than its previous best in 2005. MD Stuart Hunt says: "That won't reflect in our market share this year, which I expect to be slightly down on last year's level of 28.8% at about 27.5%. But it still means we will register some 90% more trucks than our nearest rival, and remain market leader in every significant truck market sector."
Daf is taking steps to deal with the extended lead times that are affecting all the major manufacturers, Hunt adds: "To ease the pressure on the Eindhoven plant, from early 2008 all trucks we sell in the UK will be assembled at Leyland Trucks in the UK."
