ZF Friedrichshafen AG, also known as ZF Group, and commonly abbreviated to ZF (ZF = “Zahnradfabrik” = “Gear Factory”), is a German car parts maker headquartered in Friedrichshafen, in the south-west German region of Baden-Württemberg. ZF is an innovation-driven company that develops volume production-ready products based on its own research and development efforts and thus invests in the future in a targeted way. As a company that develops OE parts, manufacturers expect innovative products from ZF to distinguish their companies and vehicles from the competition. The focus is increasingly on functions for improved driving dynamics, comfort and safety, with fewer individual components or systems.

In the four technology domains Vehicle Motion Control, Integrated Safety, Automated Driving, and Electric Mobility, ZF offers comprehensive OE solutions for established vehicle manufacturers and newly emerging transport and mobility service providers. There are many ZF parts that contribute to reducing emissions and protecting the climate.
