The entire exhibition is held under the auspices of the Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the Netherlands, Her Excellency Kateřina Sequensová. The opening ceremony was attended by representatives of the shareholders of the Tatra Trucks - Denisa Materová for Promet Group and Radim Ochvat for the Czechoslovak Group Management of Tatra Trucks was represented by marketing director Kamil Košťál and marketing specialist Marie Jonasová. DAF Trucks was represented by its president Harald Seidel.
The Tatra Trucks company has been working closely with the Dutch company DAF Trucks for years, especially in the field of off-road all-wheel drive trucks. Last year, it was 10 years since the production of the Tatra Phoenix model line began. It uses some DAF components and engines from the associated Paccar brand. The successful cooperation between the two truck manufacturers is also underlined by a large contract for almost 900 trucks for the Belgian army, which both of these partners are currently fulfilling.
So if you visit the DAF Museum in Eindhoven, there are eight legendary Tatra trucks, seven examples of Tatra cars, not only the Tatra T13, T57 Hadimrška, T111, T813 Kolos, the Dakar racing special truck T815, but also the aerodynamic types T87, T603 or the last passenger cars in production Tatra T613 or T700. Last but not least the already mentioned Tatra Phoenix can of course be seen at the exhibition as well.
