  • 22-Dec-2008 05:53 EST

Leoni will equip two of DAF’s truck series and its premium Paccar MX 12.9-L six-cylinder engine with wiring systems for five years, according to a recent agreement. 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. The DAF XF series is built for long hauls, while the CF series is built for diverse urban and regional transport activities.
