The company will invest in its manufacturing facility, ZF Transmissions Gray Court, located at 2846 N. Old Laurens Road, allowing it to build next generation propulsion systems for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Production is scheduled for later this year.
“This is ZF’s first step to ensure ZF Gray Court remains a critical part of our major e-mobility transformation in North America and globally.
