The German company will invest more than 222 million pesos to expand its operations in Querétaro, with the incorporation of the first line of steering by wire with steering wheel actuators.

The investment project consists of integrating electronics into steering to make it more accurate and safer for passenger and commercial vehicle steering.

ZF Group Vice President of Steerling Product Line Operations, Andreas Temmen, emphasized that the state will be a global pioneer in the development of this technology.

He said that with this investment, 100 new jobs are expected to be created, which will help the company to have more customers in the same line; this will guarantee solid growth at the Querétaro plant.

Temmen reported that by the end of this year, a new production start-up is planned, also with new technology from the state, to serve the North American market.

He explained that the German company is driving next-generation mobility, consolidating its position as the main supplier that supplies, above all, automobile manufacturers and emerging companies in the field of transport and mobility.
