The company was founded a hundred years ago. For its rich history ZF has become a world leader in the field of production of drive and suspension technology, not missing the opportunities presented for commercial development. The history of ZF is a story of continuous development that began with the production of gears and gearboxes for airships and continues to this day: at present the concern has become one of the world`s leading leaders in the field of drive and suspension technology. Founded in 1915, ZF has become a supplier of a wide range of components (first gearboxes, and more recently - steering systems, differentials and bridges) for countless cars of various customers. As a result, ZF managed to write not only its own history, but also to leave its name in the annals of such well-known car manufacturers as Aston Martin and BMW, Maserati, MAN and Mercedes Benz, having determined the development and design features of these brands. ZF engineers became the engine of the company`s engineers, thanks to their ingenuity, the ability to efficiently use high-tech materials and constantly improve production processes, relentlessly optimized both mass production and equipment for racing cars.
