The company was founded by Hubert van Doorne in 1982 together with A.H. Huenges who is also an owner of a brewery. Its initial name is Commanditaire Vennootschap Hub van Doorne’s Machinefabriek. Van Doorne actually worked for Huenges by repairing his cars. He did a pretty good job in it that Huenges offered him a deal to finance his own company.

He started the small shop inside Huenges’ brewery. In 1932, the company was fully given supervision to Van Doorne and his brother Wim. They then decided to change the company’s name to Van Doorne’s Aanhangwagen Fabriek or DAF which translates to Van Doorne’s Trailer Factory in English.

Huenges decided to leave the company in 1936 and handed over the whole company to Van Doorne. They designed the Trado conversions to fully transform the 4×2 Ford trucks to a 6×4 drive. The Trado drivetrain also gave way to the construction of DAF’s first armored vehicle, the M39 Pantserwagen. This was meant to be used for the Second World War but it was released late and only three units of it went to combat.
