Automation at the highest levels

The use of state-of-the-art solutions to increase productivity has always been one of the distinctive features of GKN Automotive's corporate culture. For this reason, in its headquarters in Florence, the company makes extensive use of robotic solutions, thanks to which the company combines a containment of production costs and an increase in quality. 

Excellence in movement

GKN Automotive is the world's largest supplier of transmission technologies for the automotive industry. 

Having entered the automotive industry in the 1930s producing components for military vehicles, the company has grown to the point where more than 50 percent of the 81 million new cars sold in 2018 contained GKN Automotive technology.

The confidence the company has now built up with customers allows them to rely on it fully for the production of traction systems so they can focus on their vision of the vehicle.
