ZF’s marine division celebrates partnership

 ZF Services UK has expanded supplier network

 A new service partnership has been agreed with PME Power Systems Group

 The deal will enhance ZF’s customer experience and increase access to parts and services

As part of its ongoing commitment to enhance customer support, ZF Services UK, a leading marine propulsion specialist, has expanded its supplier network after selecting Poole-based PME Power Systems Group in a new service partnership deal. The partnership, which complements ZF Services UK’s existing service and support network, has seen PME Group, a marine engine specialist and service support centre for MAN engines, chosen to become an official dealer of ZF transmissions.

Specialists in engine packages, PME Group provides components to pleasure craft, commercial and fast craft, including crew transfer vessels.

With four service partners across the country, PME Group joins ZF Services UK’s distributor network, helping to champion the ZF brand and provide valuable advice and guidance to its marine customers. In addition, PME Group’s location will help offer a premium service to ZF equipment operators and owners based in the south, providing customers with enhanced access to ZF parts and services.

Paul Dean, Market Manager for Marine at ZF Services UK, commented: “Developing our supplier network is vital in ensuring we continue to provide a high quality service that meets the needs of our customers, so we’re delighted to be working with with PME Group to help achieve this. The organisation already has a large customer portfolio and is currently moving into wind farm support, which is another area for expansion for us. We look forward to working with the company and developing ways to strengthen the service we offer our customers.”

Peter Chalk, Director at PME Group, explained: “We have a long-standing relationship with ZF Services, so to formalise the partnership is exciting and will enable us to enhance the service we provide our customers. Supporting the marine sector for 50 years, we have an unrivalled understanding of engines and applications, so working with ZF who specialise in transmissions is a natural fit. We’re huge advocates of ZF and appreciate the standard of quality the products provide, so being able to draw on the support and their service offering will ultimately enhance our own offer.”
