About ZF Switches & Sensors
ZF acquired Cherry in 2008. The former Cherry products continue to thrive under the umbrella of ZF Friedrichshafen AG and in 2017 produced more than 250 million microswitches alone. The product range has been systematically expanding beyond microswitches, and now includes sensors and wireless energy harvesting technology.
ZF has integrated management systems based on the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and TS 16949 standards, whose quality and environmental standards have become second nature for our employees.
What makes the difference between a good and an excellent technical solution? Precision and reliability, the power of innovation; these are the foundations of our success.
Regardless of whether you use our products in household appliances, industrial applications, in the automobile industry or for input systems – ZF reliability has been proven, millions of times over.
ZF products are synonymous with the highest quality. This has made us one of the leading suppliers of electronic components in applications such as household appliances, off-highway vehicles, industrial applications and home & building automation markets.
With significant engineering resource and extensive production capabilities, a broad range of standard components are available, through to customer-specific, complex mechatronic solutions or electronic control units. The combination of advanced manufacturing processes geared to the highest quality standards with a management system certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2000 and 14001:2005 and ISO/TS 16949:2002 has already won a number of distinguished business awards.
