Recently, GROB was honoured by ZF with the Performance Award in the category “Operational Excellence for Non-Production Material” for its achievements in a major project for “Electric Drive with Hairpin Technology” in recognition of its high level of innovation, quality and reliability of its machines and systems in international competition.
«The Performance Award – said German Wankmiller, GROB Chairman of the Board – is a high honour and appreciation from our customer ZF, as we prevailed against all other machine and plant manufacturers. 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».
The partnership between the two companies is sound: 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.
