ZF Services Ltd Wrexham has produced its eight millionth remanufactured caliper, highlighting the continued importance of remanufacturing in the local area according to Steve Craddock, Chief Reporter at The Leader.
The Wrexham-based company has grown considerably to become an established braking specialist within the local community and automotive industry, which is highlighted with this landmark achievement.
Now employing circa 130 + employees at its 20,000 square metre factory space, the brand is synonymous with helping to grow the local economy and creating jobs for the Wrexham community.
Carrying out its remanufacturing processes at its Centre of Excellence in Wrexham means ZF Services can eliminate the impact of transportation and the brand is protected from the potential risk of extra tariffs when importing due to Brexit.
This growth, thanks to its continual investment in research and development at its UK base, enables the brand to successfully refine its processes and ensure every unit is of the highest possible quality before entering the market.
As an example, when remanufacturing calipers, ZF Services only reuses the core, having been subject to strict acceptance criteria and undergoing a stringent quality remanufacturing process that involves its inspection, dismantling, cleaning, rebuild and test.
ZF Services remanufactures components at its Wrexham-based facility 24 hours a day, five days a week.
Paul Davies, senior manager of operations at ZF Services Ltd Wrexham, said: “We’re incredibly proud to roll out our eight millionth caliper right here in Wrexham, as it highlights our continued commitment to supporting the local community, while only providing customers with quality products.
“UK remanufacturing remains as relevant and economically important as ever. We are very grateful to our employees, customers and the rest of the supply chain who have contributed towards this success and look forward to remanufacturing the next eight million calipers.”
