ZF will continue its technology license and supply agreements with Brakes India

TVS Group auto parts maker Brakes India has said its joint venture partner ZF’s divestment of entire shareholding in the company has been completed.

Brakes India was founded in 1962 as a joint venture between TV Sundram Iyengar and Sons Private Ltd (TVS) and ZF Friedrichshafen AG (ZF) of Germany.

Recently, ZF acquired WABCO Holdings, Inc and due to the resultant competitive situation, ZF agreed to divest its entire shareholding (about 49 per cent) in Brakes India to TV Sundram Iyengar and Sons Private Ltd, Sundaram Finance Holdings Ltd, India Motor Parts and Accessories Ltd (IMPAL) and Flometallic India Private Ltd, according to a statement.
