Leoni will deliver its pre-formed, overfoamed harnesses (shown) to DAF’s European headquarters in Eindhoven, Netherlands, where the Paccar MX engine is produced. The agreement also prolongs Leoni’s current supply of conventional harnesses for all DAF XF 105 and DAF CF series trucks, which are produced in Westerlo, Belgium.
