Leyland / Daf Towbars FittingComments Off on Leyland / Daf Towbars Fitting
In the town of Leyland, England, a certain James Sumner and Henry Spurrier co-founded the Lancashire Steam Motor company which later became Leyland Motors in 1907 after manufacturing steam powered lawn mowers and its first vehicle- a 1.5ton steam powered van followed by several wagons also powered by steam engines, using a vertical fire-tube boiler and even their petrol engine vehicle of 1905. During the World War II, Leyland Motors built the Cromwell Tank in 1943 as well as several medium and large trucks such as the Hippo and the Retriever.
During 1993, DAF NV went into bankruptcy and was bought through a management bouy-out (an arrangement where a large part of a company is acquired from its parent or private owners). Over time, Leyland motors has come up with several lines of truck models such as the Hippo in 1940, the Martian in 1950, the Buffalo (Ergomatic), the Leyland90 and Comet in 1986. Others include LeylandDAF 200 and 400, 1989-1993, LeylandDAF60, 70 and 80. Some of the most recent line of trucks includes the Mississippi, Columbus and the Peterbilt which received the Frost & Sullivan Manufacturing Leadership award in 2014. LeylandDAF has a long standing reputation in the United States, and India.
Currently owned by PACCAR, LeylandDAF has received the prestigious award of Order of Distinction for its 18 consecutive years of participation in occupational health and safety performance.
