DAF Trucks to build new parts distribution center in Eindhoven, Netherlands
DAF Trucks, the Netherlands-based truck manufacturing firm, is planning to invest EUR30m to build a new PACCAR parts distribution center (PDC) in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
The new PDC which will replace the existing Eindhoven distribution center will provide additional capacity and operating efficiency to support the company's growth.
Construction of the new 26,000sq m building is expected to start in July and is scheduled to be completed in the first half of next year.
DAF Trucks president Harrie Schippers said in 2011 the company had achieved a record 15.5% EU market share in the above 16 ton class and captured market leadership in tractor sales.
PACCAR Parts Europe general manager Dick Leek said the company distributes aftermarket truck parts throughout Europe, utilizing 5 strategically located parts distribution centers in Madrid, Budapest, Moscow, Leyland and Eindhoven, supporting over 1,000 DAF dealer locations.
