SAF-Holland S.A. and DAF Trucks have agreed on an aftermarket cooperation deal under which DAF will integrate SAF-Holland parts into its truck and trailer parts program (TRP) and supply its 1,100 European service dealers with SAF-Holland parts, the companies have announced.
"We are very pleased with this strategically important cooperation, since the DAF service dealers are an ideal addition to our global distribution network, and an important part of our plan to expand our aftermarket business," said Rudi Ludwig, CEO of the SAF-Holland Group.
SAF-Holland produces premium axles and axle systems, trailer and truck suspension systems, fifth wheels, trailer couplings and landing legs for semi-trailers. Its service network consists of over 7,000 outlets across Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and Australia, the company said.
DAF Trucks manufactures heavy-duty commercial vehicles at plants in the Netherlands and Belgium. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Paccar, parent of both Kenworth and Peterbilt.
