Letter from the President
For Gestamp, 2015 has been a year of positive performance. We have increased our sales and turnover. We have continued to improve our competitiveness through a firm commitment to innovation and efficiency in our management and operations. In addition, the environment remains one of the strategic priorities of the Group and we have strengthened our positive impact on the development of the communities where we are. Our people continued to play a key role and they remain one of our greatest assets.
We are an international business group focused on the design, development and manufacturing of metal components for the automotive industry. We specialize in developing products that enhance vehicle lightness and safety. Due to this, we obtain reductions in both energy consumption and the environmental impact.

We aim to continue to gain and maintain the trust of our clients and their perception of Gestamp as a solid and reliable partner. We intend to continue to be at their side, wherever they may go.
Operating excellence as a regular practice
Our commitment to operational excellence at all our manufacturing facilities and R&D centres not only positions us as the leaders in technology, quality and innovation in the industry, but it also allows us to control costs and leverage synergies globally.
Innovation as a means of progress
We continue to invest in research and development in order to maintain and enhance our ability to offer attractive solutions and added value to our clients by putting the focus on weight reduction and safety.
Sustainability to ensure permanence in time
We work every day so that the company will be sustainable by seeking to be
profitable economically, minimising our environmental impact and getting involved with the communities where we do business.
People as architects of success
Since the company was founded, our employees have been key to Gestamp´s
success. The combination of their skills, motivation and spirit is reflected in every product we make.
