ZF Aftermarket removes surcharge on Sachs HCV clutches

ZF Aftermarket has said that with immediate effect customers of its Sachs branded heavy commercial vehicle (HCV) clutches will no longer face a surcharge on product.

Distributors, who continue to order products from the UK, will reap an immediate and tangible benefit; instead of having cash tied up in the surcharge system, they will see improved cash-flow.

This news follows a decision to consolidate its new and remanufactured product ranges into a single programme across Europe. In addition, for improved efficiency and to simplify core handling processes, customers can now return all core to one central European hub.

“As experts in the field of remanufacturing, we invest the same level of engineering methodology and testing expertise in the production of our remanufactured product, as we do in the production of new components,” explains Martyn Houghton, ZF Aftermarket’s UK General Sales Manager, Automotive.

“As a first step in this changeover process, we have taken a business decision to remove the surcharge on all returned core, with immediate effect.”

Sachs clutches stand for reliability and quality. They ensure that the engine power is evenly transferred to the road. In doing so they are subject to a number of highly dynamic impacts.

In line with its position as a leading supplier of original equipment (OE) quality automotive parts, ZF Aftermarket combines the use of the highest quality materials together with effective interaction of all components to ensure the most efficient cutch system economy.

In addition, with online catalogue and technical support, Sachs OE quality HCV clutches not only offer first-class comfort and safety, but components which can be ordered and fitted quickly and easily.
