ZF Race Engineering Team

The roots of ZF in motorsports reach all the way back to the beginnings of automotive history. Even in the early days of Grand Prix racing, the best teams banked on the products from ZF. In 1998, ZF pooled its motorsports expertise in a separate, spun-off company.

Approximately 85 employees work at ZF Race Engineering GbmH in Schweinfurt and deal exclusively with motorsports issues. We develop, design, produce, and distribute motorsports clutches and shock absorbers for top-class sports and national racing series as well as for renowned automotive manufacturers, tuners, and specialist vehicle retailers.

With our subsidiary in Northville/Michigan, the ZF Race Engineering North America, and a number of service partners in Europe, Japan, and Australia our team is operating on an international level.

In 2013, ZF Race Engineering GmbH celebrated its 15th anniversary.

Our Ambition

Flexibility and Experts

New materials, technology, and know-how are just one side of the coin, to control them is the other side. Especially when top performance is required like in motorsports. For this purpose, experts are needed. Experienced employees who cooperate in small teams, find solutions, and implement them. This requires a flexible company. The logical next step was to establish the ZF Race Engineering GmbH.

Customer Satisfaction

The satisfaction of our customers is made up of quality, price, on-time delivery and service.

Our highest goal is to fulfill all this by giving it our very best. We are in continuous and close communication with the customers in order to increase their satisfaction. In doing so, we also use questionnaires to find out where our weaknesses and strengths lie in order to improve ourselves with targeted measures.

Staff Qualification

The demands on our engineers and technical personnel for qualifications and know-how are enormous. We are aware of how important it is to have an innovative lead. For this reason, there is already today continuous dialogue between superiors and employees on tomorrow´s qualification requirements. The goal is to be able to absorb the latest technologies, media, scientific and educational research in our daily research and development efforts.

Continuing education initiatives are carried out on a regular basis to offer state of the art products in answer to permanently changing market requirements.
