SACHS products are manufactured from high-quality materials and reflect the state of the art. They stand for high performance and reliability. This is why numerous well-known automotive manufacturers equip their vehicles with SACHS products: Every year, more than 10 million new vehicles equipped with SACHS dampers and shock absorbers roll off the production line. Moreover, SACHS offers high-quality clutches for original equipment manufacturers and the spare parts market.
The history of the SACHS brand starts in 1894 when the toolmaker and name-giver Ernst Sachs filed his first bicycle wheel hub patent application. One year later, he founded the "Schweinfurter Präzisionskugellager-Werke Fichtel & Sachs" (precision ball bearing production plant) together with Karl Fichtel, a merchant and financier. Then, as today, the stated philosophy was to secure a clear technological edge over competitors, both in terms of product quality and innovation and in terms of customer service.
SACHS offers products for various fields of application that cover almost all vehicle types. This applies to the European as well as the Asian vehicle market. Today, in Europe alone, the SACHS spare-parts portfolio includes shocks and dampers for more than 38 million Asian vehicles of various manufacturers. This is reassuring for trade partners, workshops and vehicle owners who can count on SACHS quality for a wide range of models.
With SACHS, ZF is actively involved in professional motorsports. As supplier for various teams, SACHS has already been involved in more than 100 wins and has gained wide experience in motorsports. This experience is used in the development and manufacturing of SACHS products. As a result, each SACHS product contains a good share of motorsports expertise.
