ZF has made investments in a new plant of over 12,000 sq mts to cater to the domestic and export market. The new plant in Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu, India) together with the main hub in Germany will support the production capacity needed for the future market growth in the global construction equipment market.
ZF Group, a global leader in hydraulic and electrohydraulic braking systems, supports customers in the heavy duty, off-highway, construction, mining, and agriculture sectors with safe and efficient brake technology.
Akash Passey, President ZF Group in India said, “This new plant and localization of transmissions and axles at our plant in Coimbatore will further our ambition of ‘Make in India for the World’ and ‘Make in India for India.’ This move makes us more agile in meeting customer expectations and enables our customers to get easy access to our world-leading technologies with local manufacturing competencies.”
The company demonstrates its expertise in driveline technology and intelligent system solutions making it the ideal partner to meet customer expectations at the Excon 2023, (South Hall 1, Booth F121).

This showcase of global technologies and investment in a new plant reiterates the Group’s commitment to the growth of domestic industry in the region and its focus on the region, Passey said.
The display in the trade fair include ZF’s newly developed eTRAC electric drive system, eCD (electric Central Drive) system for backhoe loaders, eTRAC eCD110-210 series for mid-sized wheel loaders, brake-by-wire system and eTRAC series for electric forklifts.
The Indian Off-Highway segment is estimated to grow significantly. In India, the construction industry is upbeat about the market potential with rapid urbanization and the push for infrastructural connectivity, which the country is witnessing.
The industrialization of the ERGOPOWER M transmission series at ZF Coimbatore plant will contribute to that development, he added.
