ZF Friedrichshafen AG continues its growth and expansion in the region by announcing the start of its new shock absorber production line in India. The new production line will be part of ZF's regional headquarters based in Chakan, Pune, with an annual installed manufacturing capacity of 0.7 million units. It plans to increase the capacity to three million units in the coming three to four years.

Commenting on the occasion, Suresh KV, president of ZF India, said, "With the dynamic business environment of the country and initiatives like ‘Make in India', ZF is focusing on significantly expanding its manufacturing capabilities in the country. With our wide array of products for commercial vehicles, we are already actively shaping the three megatrends in the Indian auto industry: Safety, Efficiency and E-mobility."

The completely localized production line will manufacture a comprehensive range of shock absorbers for commercial vehicles and industrial applications like trucks, buses and includes cabin and axle shock absorbers. The production line will be established in the existing multi-product facility and will offer operational synergies with the current set-up - helping the company to optimally utilize its resources.
