ZF Friedrichshafen AG acquired the tradition-steeped group of companies comprising Lemförder Metallwaren AG and Lemförder Metallwaren J. Ulderup AG & Co, headquartered in the northern German town of Lemförde in 1984. The logo with the owl (as well as three tie rods originally) has hardly changed since the Lemförder Metallwaren-Gesellschaft mbH was founded in 1947 and is still a guarantee of quality. The idea to incorporate an owl arose from the name of the company’s founder, Ulderup – “Ule” is the Low German word for owl.
