Founded in March 2014, ZF Automotive Technologies (Zhangjiagang) Co., Ltd. owns four factories, which constitute ZF's biggest manufacturing base in the Asia-Pacific region. Involving a total investment of 1.8 billion yuan ($265.089 million) and covering an area of 184,000 square meters, these factories focus on the production of braking systems, passive safety systems, electric steering systems, and chassis components, respectively.
