About the employer

DAF works according to the ‘Build to Order’ principle. This means that all vehicles are built to satisfy each customer’s individual wishes, but production only starts after the order is received from the customer. This is very important, because DAF builds tens of thousands of different vehicle versions which are all built to meet each customer’s individual specifications and transport requirements.
