Daf is leaving its 30-year home at Thame and moving to a new UK headquarters in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire.

The manufacturer and dealer network is expecting to move to the three-storey facility with an auditorium and almost 50,000ft2 of office space in July 2018. The £20m site with a four-bay workshop, will also provide training facilities.

Senior executives from the manufacturer’s UK and Netherlands operations and parent company Paccar were joined at a ceremony last week by Simon Smits, the Dutch Ambassador to the UK, representatives from local authorities and the project management company.

Daf Trucks UK MD Ray Ashworth, who recently announced his upcoming retirement, said the facility is being built at a time when the manufacturer is enjoying record success in the UK.

Ashworth said: “Daf is the market leader and set a record 30.1% share in the above 6.0-tonne market. Together with our 56 excellent dealers with 139 locations in the UK and Ireland, we offer our customers industry-leading trucks and services and we are excited to help them grow their businesses,” he added.
