Ordered to mark 50 years in business for BJ Myers, the vehicles are also DAF’s 90th anniversary editions, with special commemorative colours.
“Business is very buoyant for us at the moment, so we thought we’d push the boat out a bit and invest in the three DAF 90th anniversary specials,” says Tony Myers, managing director of the family-owned business.
“They will help us mark our own half-century and, just as important, give us something that we can use to show our appreciation to three long-service drivers who have been with us many years.”
The operator has used DAF vehicles since 1977: “We like the DAF marque and have had it over the years, other than the very few times where we have been tempted elsewhere. But we keep coming back for the quality and reliability – you really can’t beat them.”
He adds: “The products seem to get better and better, and fuel economy has been noticeably improved with the latest XF range – the 530 engine we spec now is a tough one to beat.”
Dealer Channel Commercials “is the absolute benchmark” for support, adds Myers, and was another key factor in the decision.
