The automotive sector is immersed in a transformation process which, although it had begun before the pandemic, has been greatly accelerated by it. However, once the first impact caused by the strong stoppages in global production has been overcome, the companies in the sector are recovering their growth plans on their way to continue leading the mobility of the future.
In this context, Gestamp held its first Capital Markets Day, which was postponed to 2020 due to Covid-19, in which the Group presented to the market an update on its business strategy for the coming years, with the participation of more than 300 attendees.
The event was attended by Gestamp's top executives, who gave a first-hand account of the strategic lines that the company will be following over the coming years with the aim of ensuring that Gestamp continues to be a benchmark in the automotive components sector and maintains its leadership among its competitors.
Francisco J. Riberas, Gestamp's Executive Chairman, reviewed the company's IPO in 2017 and the path followed to position Gestamp as a strategic partner for the world's leading vehicle manufacturers.
Interventions by executives
Gestamp's financial director, Carmen de Pablo, Fernando Macías, operations director, and Jon Barrenechea, commercial director, also spoke. For her part, Gestamp's Transformation Director, Patricia Riberas, presented the company's Transformation Plan.
Also discussed was Gestamp's constant commitment to innovation and development, an area in which Ignacio Martín, Gestamp's director of innovation in body-in-white, and the director of flexible manufacturing and Industry 4.0, René González, took part.
In addition, during Capital Markets Day, Gestamp reiterated its firm commitment to sustainability and ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) initiatives in a conversation between Francisco J. Riberas and César Cernuda, Chairman of the recently created Sustainability Committee of the Group's Board of Directors.
