On the occasion of its annual Global Supplier Summit on Tuesday, November 9, ZF Friedrichshafen presented GROB with the Performance Award in the category "Operational Excellence for Non-Production Material" in recognition of its high level of innovation, quality and reliability of its machines and systems in international competition.
"The Performance Award is a high honor and appreciation from our customer ZF, as we prevailed against all other machine and plant manufacturers," GROB Chairman of the Board German Wankmiller was pleased to say. "But it is also a recognition of the high innovation, quality and reliability of our machines and systems and of our performance, which we owe to our highly skilled and motivated employees in Dalian and Mindelheim. We all feel really very happy and satisfied about that."
ZF has been a GROB customer for decades for production equipment for the well-known 8-speed HP automatic transmissions. GROB is currently working on a major project for ZF for an electric drive with hairpin technology. This order for the stator, rotor and an impregnation machine is handled by GROB with its Dalian factory in China. The systems were developed and designed at GROB in Mindelheim.
