Leyland Trucks Builds the 100,000th DAF CF and XF Truck

Leyland Trucks has completed the build of its 100,000th DAF CF and XF truck, a CF 530 FAT 6×4 rigid chassis. The truck is part of a batch of four vehicles ordered by DAF Trucks Australia and will be exported shortly, spec’d for our fuel tanker market.

The state-of-the-art Leyland production facility has been producing DAF branded commercial vehicles since the late eighties. Nowadays, Leyland Trucks builds the market-leading DAF LF, CF and XF model range in any chassis configuration. Most of the CF and XF trucks that leave the assembly line are produced for Right Hand Drive markets, such as the UK and here in Australia. The plant recently received the coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2020 for increasing exports by almost 50% over the last three years.

Landmark moment

“This 100,000th CF and XF truck produced at the Leyland Assembly Plant is a hugely significant milestone for Leyland Trucks,” said Leyland Trucks managing director Brennan Gourdie. “There is a proud heritage of truck building in the UK and at Leyland, culminating with the production of the current line-up of DAF trucks today. The 100,000 CF and XF chassis is a landmark moment representing an exceptional commitment from everyone here at Leyland and from the wider DAF organisation world-wide.”

Local Production

PACCAR Australia assembles the CF 530 FTT, CF 480 FTT and CF450 FTT models at its Baywater production facility and recently celebrated the 250th locally assembled truck to drive off the production line since beginning assembly in August 2018 with the CF85 510 model.
