ZF Friedrichshafen has expanded local development capacity at its technology center in Shanghai, China, with the establishment of a new engineering facility.
Work here focuses on driveline and chassis technology, particularly electromobility, for all applications. The facility works closely with the existing ZF center in Anting where R&D work on active and passive safety technology for the Asian market is conducted.
Making up 22% of group sales, the Asia-Pacific region is one of ZF’s key markets. “We expect a moderate yet clear growth in Asia-Pacific for 2017. Major factors are hybrid and electric drives as well as technologies for active and passive safety. We are extremely well-positioned in both sectors,” said ZF CEO Dr Stefan Sommer.
