About Us


As an employer, it is particularly important to us to stay in communication with the employees in order to guarantee the well-being of individuals and the team. The entire staff gathers quarterly to be informed about news by the management. In addition to this, there is an internal company newsletter providing further information about the individual locations. Furthermore, once a year, both a personal conversation with the team or department management and an anonymous survey take place to paint a current picture of overall satisfaction. Additionally, there is a suggestion box where personal or anonymous feedback can be submitted at any time. Based on this feedback, we develop ways to further improve ourselves.

As we are an international team, communication within the company takes place in both German and English to enable barrier-free work for everyone. For various topics related to the everyday work at ZD, there is a company-owned bilingual intranet accessible to all employees.

At ZD Automotive, people from various countries and cultural backgrounds work together, including Cameroon, Taiwan, USA, China, and of course, Germany.Internally, we have multiple departments and career levels, and due to new proj-ects, our team is continuously expanding. To provide a glimpse behind the scenes and to get to know us better, we introduce employees from different areas here - from student interns to site managers. They have all given us a small insight into their work and experiences at ZD.


Supporting young individuals with fresh ideas, newly acquired knowledge, and im-mense enthusiasm is of great importance to us. Every semester, we welcome several students as interns or working students who develop their practical experiences with us and creatively accompany projects.
