Purchasing strategy

The core purchasing strategy contains important elements of the partnership. ZF wants to change over from single sourcing to strategic partnerships, from parts suppliers to system suppliers, from local suppliers to global suppliers. The company also wants to implement supply chain management. In the future, these factors will form the basis partnerships with suppliers.

Purchasing Program

The ZF purchasing program includes steel forming parts/gear parts, aluminum cast and molded parts, turned parts, iron casting (gray iron and ductile cast iron blanks and machined parts), sintered and sinter-forged parts (gray iron and ductile cast iron blanks and machined parts), roller bearings and supplies, stamped and presswork parts, complete assemblies, gaskets, connecting elements, and plastic/rubber parts.
