As part of ZF’s commitment to improving services for existing and new customers, the new 920 square metre building is almost double the size of the two previous buildings combined, providing increased service capability and local parts availability.
Now all under one roof, the increased warehouse and workshop capacity supports the strategic business growth that ZF Services Australia has experienced in recent years.
With improved working conditions at the new facility, employment opportunities are expected to increase over the next 24 months, while the company’s long-term plan is to increase staff numbers by up to 60 percent within the next six years.
Indeed, the firm says it has for the first time employed a third year apprentice and is committed to furthering opportunities for young mechanics within the organisation into the future.
Hosted by the local ZF Services Malaga team, the opening saw new and familiar representatives of the bus, truck, passenger car and mining industries in attendance.
During the proceedings, ZF Services Australia managing director, Chris Adcock, presented the complete range of ZF products available in Australia and also gave an overview of ZF’s global product line-up.
“ZF Services Australia has experienced significant growth over the past year and the expansion of our WA facility is a reflection of this,” Chris Adcock said. “In a global sense, Western Australia is a very important market and we take pride in being able to provide an improved service to our growing clientele in this region.”
ZF Services Western Australia supplies to individual aftermarket distributors as well as aftermarket divisions of original equipment manufacturers, with a full workshop facility to service and remanufacture ZF transmissions.
The facility supports all ZF product applications, including SACHS suspensions, Lemforder steering and Boge shock absorbers, in markets such as cars, trucks, buses, mining, marine and other commercial applications.
