ZF Aftermarket added 116 new products to its branded portfolios in the first quarter of 2023.

ZF Aftermarket expanded its parts offerings in the first quarter of 2023 for vehicles in the United States and Canada, adding 116 new listings to its ZF, Lemförder, SACHS, TRW and WABCO branded portfolios. The latest additions expand coverage to approximately 26.3 million vehicles in operation, the company says.

Additionally, ZF conducted in-person training for more than 500 technicians in the first quarter and will conduct a series of training sessions across the U.S. during the second quarter.

New product numbers include 56 different part numbers for Lemförder window regulators, motors and related assemblies for various 1999-2018 Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Volvo models.
