ZF Services UK becomes “service ready” on next-generation vehicles and wins Irish Auto Trade 'Automotive Aftermarket Parts Manufacturer of the Year' Award 2020 in customer vote


Date: 12-Dec-2019

ZF Services UK has become “service ready” on the next generation of commercial vehicles.

The company’s UK Centre of Competence in Nottingham – which provides technical support, repairs and servicing – has put technicians through extensive high voltage training and invested in the very latest testing equipment for TraXon fully automatic transmissions and AxTrax AVE electric axles.

ZF Services UK’s expanding Service Partner network is also undergoing training as the company meets the evolving demand for the repair and maintenance of modern vehicles.

ZF’s Nottingham Centre of Competence – which has enhanced its capacity to remanufacturer and repair transmissions and axles – can perform on-site diagnosis, repairs and servicing to ensure vehicle downtime is minimised. 

With ZF AxTrax AVE electric portal axles successfully lowering emissions for hybrid buses and trolleybuses, and TraXon providing effective transmission of power and long service life, ZF Services UK is fully equipped to meet the repair and maintenance challenges of the Next Generation Aftermarket. 

David Wakeling, ZF Head of Commercial Vehicle, said: “ZF Services UK has invested in additional resources, training and equipment at its Nottingham Centre of Competence to ensure it is ideally placed to service and repair the next generation of vehicles. This investment demonstrates our commitment to customers and ability to support their ongoing commercial vehicle service and maintenance needs.”

Fully ISO accredited, the ZF Services UK Centre of Competence in Nottingham is a dedicated facility and thanks to the recent expansion, now boasts a 6500m² workshop area to further underline the company’s position as a leading industry specialist. With multi-brand capabilities, the centre uses only industry trained technicians who are multi-skilled and work to OEM standards.

And then, for the second year in a row, ZF Aftermarket has driven off with the title of Automotive Aftermarket Parts Manufacturer of the Year at the Irish Auto Trade Awards. The award is a particularly coveted prize as it’s voted for by readers of the Auto Trade Journal, Ireland's leading automotive magazine.

The business, owner of impressive brand portfolio: Lemförder, Sachs, TRW & Boge beat off stiff competition from several industry greats to take the title for its product quality and excellent customer service. The award was presented at the Irish Auto Trade Awards held on October 17th at Killashee Hotel, Naas, Co Kildare.

On behalf of the team, ZF Aftermarket Senior Manager IAM – UK & Ireland, Martyn Houghton said: “To be voted by our customers for this title for the second time in a row is a real achievement. The team that sits behind the brand and brings it all together should be extremely proud.”        

Padraic Deane, Publisher and Managing Editor of the Auto Trade Journal commented: “ZF Aftermarket proves that by delivering the complete package it is the best again, on this occasion.”
