DAF Museum

In 1928, brewer A.H. Huenges, owner of the De Valk brewery, the Hub and Wim van Doorne brothers, have a workshop available next to his brewery at Tongelresestraat 27 in Eindhoven.

The central heating. Hub van Doorne, machine and repair facility ”initially made simple construction work. The workplace was in fact a big forge. This forge, which has been completely restored, is worth a visit to the DAF Museum alone, because it is fascinating to see which tools were used in addition to the forge fire.

In 1932 the company name was changed to "Van Doorne’s Aanhangwagen Fabriek", DAF for short. The production of trailers and semi-trailers went well, inter alia, due to the legendary featherweight semi-trailer with automatic coupling.
