Leyland Trucks, the Lancashire-based manufacturer of DAF trucks for the UK and overseas markets, has won the coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2020.
The business-oriented accolade recognises Leyland Trucks’ outstanding success in the Awards’ International Trade category.
In recognition of its achievement, Leyland Trucks will attend a special royal reception and celebration in the summer, and is able to use the highly desirable Queen’s Awards emblem for the next five years.
The state-of-the-art production facility has been producing the full range (LF, CF, and XF) of market-leading DAF commercial vehicles for 20 years.
The lightweight LF range was entirely designed, developed and engineered at Leyland Trucks, while the factory is also home to a unique in-house body-building programme.
In 2018, DAF Trucks’ CF and XF ranges were voted International Truck of the Year; an accolade the company has received for the fifth time.
