In the four technology domains of Vehicle Motion Control, Integrated Safety, Automated Driving and Electric Mobility, ZF offers comprehensive product and software solutions for established vehicle manufacturers and newly emerging transport and mobility service providers. We are constantly driving our transformation forward with focus and speed. The increasing presence in global growth markets, investments in high yield products and future technologies as well as an efficient and resilient organizational structure are top priorities. In short, we are continuously expanding our strengths. This also includes the Group's unique ability in the market to transfer innovations and technologies across segment boundaries.

The ZF Group is represented with 162 production locations in 31 countries. With some 168,700 employees worldwide, ZF reported sales of €46.6 billion in fiscal year 2023.

Our key to success is that we have the broadest product and technology portfolio in the market, paired with the ability to integrate products into system landscapes and our customers' vehicle environment.
