The new production complex is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 and offer an additional 4,000 m2 of space to accommodate further production and warehousing activities.

Holger Klein, Member of Board of Management, ZF Friedrichshafen AG, stated, “This investment is a strong signal for the region and the commitment to grow business in the region, India is an important growth market for ZF and therefore we are expanding our presence here.”
