Some history of ERF trucks
Established in 1933 by Edwin Richard Foden - ERF Based in Sandbach, Cheshire, the company made their own chassis and cabs, originally with engines from Gardner, but later also Cummins, Perkins, Detroit Diesel and Caterpillar Inc..
ERFs used to be marketed under the Western Star badge in some countries such as Australia. It also built a specialist fire engine chassis, with a body built on by in-house company JH Jennings, later Cheshire Fire Engineering. However, when recession came in the early 1980's and production fell from a total output of 4,000 chassis per annum, CFE was sold to management to eventually become Saxon Sanbec.
The company was bought by Canadian truck maker Western Star in 1996. However, after PACCAR's purchase of both DAF Trucks and Leyland Trucks increased competitive pressure, and Western Star was approached by Freightliner Trucks corporation, the decision was made to sell ERF.
In 2000, ERF became part of MAN AG. These trucks make excellent Value Used ERF trucks
ERF's final model range consisted of the ECT, ECM and ECL built on MAN's production line in Nuremberg (for heavy trucks), and a plant in Middlewich for light trucks - positioned to win a contract from the Ministry of Defence for 8,000 new British Armed Forces trucks.
