Although founded as a gear manufacturer in 1915, Germany-based ZF Friedrichshafen AG still manufactures a variety of products today, including transmission parts and drive axles for passenger and commercial vehicles, suspension equipment for heavy trucks, as well as gearboxes for wind turbines. The automotive supplier operates in over 20 countries around the globe and is ranked among the leading companies in the field of motor vehicle parts manufacturing. Furthermore, the manufacturer of automotive parts sold its automotive steering segment to peer rival Bosch and succeeded with a takeover bid to TRW shareholders in December of 2014. The merger of TRW Automotive and ZF Friedrichshafen was completed in 2015. As a result of what may be dubbed one of the largest supplier acquisitions in history, the automotive component manufacturer emerged as a new heavyweight in the automotive parts market. The megasuppliers Robert Bosch GmbH and Denso Corporation are among ZF Friedrichshafen AG’s main competitors. With the establishment of its Zukunft Ventures GmbH, ZF is expected to increase its activity in the area of autonomous driving.
