SACHS Exhibition in Schweinfurt

100 years of ZF Friedrichshafen AG in 2015 – what better occasion to take a closer look at the history of the Schweinfurt location and to open it up to the public.

Your visit to the SACHS exhibition

An impressive exhibition covering 850 m² is being staged in a former production hall on the plant site of ZF Friedrichshafen AG in Schweinfurt. The exhibition brings to life for visitors the colorful history of the company Fichtel & Sachs and the development of the SACHS brand with numerous exhibits, fascinating interactive stations and computer displays.
