ZF expands transmission plant in Saarbrücken

November 16, 2010

Strong demand for 8-speed automatic transmissions has prompted automotive supplier ZF to rapidly expand its production capacity at the plant in Saarbrücken, Germany. This will lead to the creation of 150 to 200 additional jobs there and the construction of an additional production hall at a cost of approx. €10 million. The new facility should be ready for production in the spring of 2012.

“After the end of the economic crisis, demand for our car transmissions has increased so rapidly and strongly that we are now expanding our production capacity earlier than planned,” stated ZF CEO Hans-Georg Härter.

Starting in the spring of 2012, the new production hall will begin producing trigger boxes for automatic transmissions, which will be used not just for transmissions from the plant in Saarbrücken, but also for those made by the ZF transmission plants in the US and China.
