ZFP - zerstörungsfreie Prüfung
Explanation:
some more background on the topic

ZFP means in English: non-destructive test (according to Eurodicautom)

I think that all of these abbreviations refer to tests (quality, etc.). Therefore, I do not think that they refer to a department or company. Instead, I am quite sure about my suggestions in this regard. I hope this helps a little bit.

more than one possibility :-(


Explanation:
My dictionaries of German abbreviations didn’t yield anything helpful.
Unfortunately (as is often the case with abbreviations and acronyms) there is more than one possibility, as shown on Google:

*** APS: ***
In Denmark:, APS appears to be used as a corporate acronym after company names --somewhat like Inc. or GmbH.

In Central Europe also: Ausbildungspartnerschaft Süd (APS),
In France: d’avant-projet sommaire (APS)

In English contexts (though perhaps not yours): advanced planning and scheduling (APS),

And there is at least one company with the abbreviation in the company name: APS Metals Inc.
(see below)

Metallurgy system of generalized preferences


Explanation:
okay, here we go:

Metallurgy is the translation for Metallurgie according to Eurodicautom (Online Dictionary of the EU)

System of Generalized Preferences is the translation for Allgemeines Präferenzsystem (APS) according to Eurodicautom (Online Dictionary of the EU)

Unfortunately, I do not have an idea in regard to the letter M in this context.
