Leyland Trucks hits half million vehicle production milestone

Leyland Trucks is celebrating the production of its 500,000th vehicle.

The half million milestone truck, a 16-tonne GVW DAF LF 210, was built for leading importer and distributor of Italian porcelain tiles Minoli.

The 210hp LF is the first of four new vehicles for Minoli, and has been specified with ZF AS-Tronic 6-speed gearbox, rear air suspension, adjustable roof spoiler and cab collars. The new additions take the number of DAFs on its fleet to 14.

“We as a company and a family, feel very privileged to have been invited to Leyland Trucks to mark such a momentous milestone in the company’s history,” said Minoli MD Jonathon Minoli. “We’re proud to know that our trucks are built in Britain and that we are supporting British industry. We’ve been a DAF operator for almost 40-years now – and our relationship with the brand has been built on quality and reliability, that in turn allows us to meet our customers’ needs, day after day and year after year.”
