The agreement solidifies AMSOIL as the global leader in wind gearbox oil reliability and performance. The company’s global presence and unparalleled customer service have not gone unnoticed by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

"We are proud to partner with ZF Wind Power, a company known for its strong technological leadership, strategic partnerships, and strong focus on R&D. That reputation makes the decision to partner with AMSOIL a significant validation of our products and service," said Dave Meyer, AMSOIL VP, Wind & Industrial. "The agreement is consistent with ZF’s vision to provide the highest quality products on the market."

AMSOIL PTN 320 Synthetic Gear Oil offers advanced gear protection in the crucial run-in period and is engineered to last. After more than 9 years in use, it still passes rigorous OEM test requirements designed for new oil, proving its durability. The premium industrial lubricant’s superior performance and long drain interval saves money and protects the environment.

ZF Wind Power is a globally established designer, manufacturer, and supplier of advanced gearbox solutions for wind turbines, currently operating four state-of-the-art manufacturing plants with an annual output capacity of approximately 18,000 MW. In addition to its manufacturing presence in Europe, India, China, and the U.S., ZF maintains worldwide sales and service operations.
