Horton, Inc. has entered into a joint sales agreement with ZF Services (based in Vernon Hills,IL.) and ZF Sachs (based in Northville, MI.) to provide sales support for the ZF Sachs line of driveline clutches to the heavy-duty aftermarket in the U.S. and Canada.

Worldwide, Friedrichshafen,Germany-based ZF Sachs is the largest manufacturer of clutch systems for heavy commercial vehicles. Innovations such as the dual-mass flywheel, TwinXtend self-adjust clutch and ConAct pneumatic clutch actuator are just some of the products ZF Sachs has developed to reduce torsional vibrations, increase clutch life and ease pedal effort. Horton noted.

According to Horton, the partnership to provide field sales support for the aftermarket clutch line reflects “the growing demand for Sachs 15.5” (293.7 mm) manual-adjust and TwinXtend self-adjust clutches in North America” and ZF selected Horton for its “strong field presence, training programs and commitment to customer service.”

This ZF Sachs agreement expands Horton’s offerings to commercial-vehicle and industrial-equipment markets. "The agreement allows Horton to provide a broader range of products backed by our reliable industry-leading sales and customer support," said Jeff Lindgren, senior vp of sales & marketing. "ZF is a very strong brand name worldwide. Customers will benefit from the expertise of both organizations and from purchasing from a single source."

Friedrichshafen,Germany-based ZF, parent of ZF Sachs and other ZF-branded businesses, is a leading worldwide automotive supplier of driveline and chassis technology with approximately 60,000 employees at 125 production locations in 26 countries.
