In 1969 Gerard Daams started his company in agricultural mechanisation, producing outbuildings and agricultural machinery and soon after this he obtained the dealership for Renault tractors. Starting as a small entrepreneur he managed to grow the company.
Later his sons Toine and Frank brought 4x4s into the business, and in 1996 they switched over completely to being a 4×4 company . Frank has run FD 4×4 Centre since 2014, putting a strong emphasis on in-house production and building special projects for clients in the Netherlands and all over the world.
FD 4×4 Centre is an ambitious company, the guys are always looking to the future. They constantly deliver quality products and innovative solutions for the 4×4 market of the future, with the aim of becoming one of the top producers of off-road products and accessories in Europe.
