Emerging Off-Highway Markets offer significant growth opportunities.

Best Cost products and markets are playing a significant role for Off-Highway machinery systems. Furthermore, the importance of globally acting manufacturers with production facilities all over the world continues to increase.

But also for new upcoming markets ZF has got the right products with market intelligence and service stations for the local support.

For a global product strategy, especially for the Off-Highway markets, it is essential to align market-specific technologies, local production as well as local engineering and service.

Only with this “Global Footprint” ZF is able to meet future market trends and regional customer and supplier requirements.

The ZF Best Choice Strategy with 3 technology levels is the perfect answer to conquer these challenges. It aligns a wide product portfolio with the diverse global market demands. (Fig 2)
