The article focuses on the plans of Hans-Georg Haerter, chief executive officer (CEO) of ZF Friedrichshafen AG, for operations of the company in the U.S. Haerter is consolidating and reevaluating the supplier's operations in the wake of collapsing sales and production of cars and light trucks. Meanwhile, ZF is going forward with a joint venture with Chrysler LLC to make axles for both Chrysler and, potentially, other customers at a new plant in Marysville, Michigan, beginning in 2010.
