FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany — Next Generation Mobility, driven by electrified, autonomous, and software-defined vehicles, is fully transforming the aftermarket. At Automechanika, ZF will present new product ranges and innovative service concepts to support workshops, distributors, and fleets in this transformation journey. For the first time, ZF Aftermarket welcomes its guests in the Forum of Messe Frankfurt. The striking building is the perfect place for networking, customer meetings and tradeshow premieres on the main stage.
“After nearly three years of lockdowns, I am delighted to welcome our customers back to our ZF Automechanika booth. Finally, we can show you in person how we can advance the servitization of the mobility ecosystem together”, explains Philippe Colpron, Head of ZF Aftermarket. “The comprehensive penetration of the vehicle population with connectivity functions, software and electric drives paves the way for a true revolution in aftersales.
“All workshops must be prepared for this now. Early anticipation of upcoming changes and proactive preparations are key success factors for everyone in the aftermarket.”
At Automechanika, ZF Aftermarket will focus in the Forum on presenting new services, innovative products, and a sound knowledge transfer to open a completely new horizon of opportunities for its partners.
ZF pioneers a sustainable aftermarket with its expanded portfolio of remanufactured products
ZF has been active in the industrial remanufacturing of components and assemblies for vehicles for more than 60 years. For example, gearboxes, steering systems, axles, torque converters, clutches, brake calipers and engine parts are reconditioned in 22 plants and service locations in 12 countries. ZF Aftermarket is now bringing this long-term experience to an enlarged remanufacturing portfolio.
“Protecting the environment is one of our most important corporate goals,” said Colpron. “That’s why we are constantly working on the further development of our remanufacturing offerings.”
Remanufacturing is a sustainable industrial process that ensures the same quality, safety, and functionality as a new serial part. It allows the products to go through several life cycles and offers significant energy and material savings – depending on the product by up to 90 percent – compared to the completely new production of a part.
At Automechanika, ZF Aftermarket will focus on its significantly enlarged portfolio of remanufactured steering gears for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. TRW steering gears will be newly introduced for high-volume vehicle models such as the Audi A3, Skoda Octavia, Volkswagen Golf V/VI and the Passat.
