“We were confident that the re-design did not infringe on the 279 patent, and the ruling has certainly verified our position in serving customers,” stated Wolfgang Vogel, executive vice president, Commercial Vehicle Transmissions, and a member of the management board of ZF Friedrichshafen AG, in a company release.
The FreedomLine automated mechanical transmission entered North America in 2001.
