ZF ex­pands CV prod­uct port­fo­lio

Commercial Vehicle - - NEWS -

ZF has an­nounced that it con­tin­ues to ex­pand its CV prod­uct port­fo­lio with the start of a shock ab­sorber pro­duc­tion line in In­dia. Part of ZF’s re­gional head­quar­ters at Chakan, Pune, the new pro­duc­tion line will have an an­nual in­stalled man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pac­ity of 0.7 mil­lion units. The Group plans to in­crease the ca­pac­ity to three mil­lion units in the com­ing three to four years. The com­pletely lo­calised pro­duc­tion line will man­u­fac­ture a com­pre­hen­sive range of shock ab­sorbers for com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles and in­dus­trial ap­pli­ca­tions like trucks, buses, and cabin and axle shock ab­sorbers. The pro­duc­tion line will be es­tab­lished in the ex­ist­ing mul­ti­prod­uct fa­cil­ity and will of­fer op­er­a­tional syn­er­gies with the cur­rent set-up. It would help the com­pany to op­ti­mally utilise its re­sources. Fol­low­ing the man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­cesses used in dif­fer­ent global plant lo­ca­tions, the new pro­duc­tion line will add shock ab­sorbers to an ex­ten­sive range of prod­ucts for com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles ZF of­fers in In­dia. These in­clude trans­mis­sions, axles, chas­sis com­po­nents and steer­ing sys­tems.
