ZF is local
ZF activities in the Chinese market date back to the year 1980, when the first cooperation agreement was signed. Since then, development has followed three steps. First, sales and service centers were localized and gradually extended followed by production and engineering facilities. In 1994, ZF Shanghai Steering was the first production facility founded as a joint venture.
ZF supplies the Chinese market with driveline and chassis components, passenger car and commercial vehicle transmissions, axle systems, steering systems as well as products for construction and agricultural machinery, forklift trucks, special vehicles, rail vehicles, marine and wind power applications.
ZF not only strengthens its excellent position with local production for national and international vehicle manufacturers, the company is also expanding its local development capacity in the Technology Center in Shanghai.
In order to continuously strengthen and expand its position on the Chinese market, ZF has invested more than €1 billion in its Chinese development and production locations over the past five years. ZF is preparing for further growth on the Chinese market with its expanded Engineering Center in Shanghai. The new Engineering Center works closely with the existing ZF Technology Center in Anting that focuses on active and passive safety technology for the Asian market.
