History of Foden
Foden Trucks' origins date back to 1856 when Edwin Foden began his
career with a small engineering company near Sandbach in Cheshire
that would become Foden Trucks, in 2006 celebrating 150 years of
its enviable history.
Foden name became synonymous with a reputation for quality engineering
and played a key role in the evolution of commercial road transport
both in the UK and around the world through the steam era, into
the diesel age up to the present day.
1980 Foden became a divison of PACCAR Inc, one of the world's largest
and most financially stable heavy truck manufacturers. Alongside
other PACCAR owned truck brands, Kenworth and Peterbilt in the USA,
and DAF in Europe(from 1996), Foden continued to develop and manufacture
trucks to meet the requirements of operators in the UK and New Zealand
until the Foden brand was retired from new vehicle production in
of Foden vehicles continue to be supported by Truck Service points providing aftermarket support throughout
the UK. A comprehensive range of parts for Foden and other vehicle
marques are available.
DAFaid provides Foden operators with 24 hour, 365 day roadside
assistance for all the trucks in their fleet in case of breakdown.
