At nearly all of these locations, only one casting process is used respectively, whether sand casting, gravity die casting, or pressure die casting. This has proved to be the best condition for specialization, and a foundation for numerous innovations. The new research and development center in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and the iron foundry in Kunshan, China, are also clear signs of the innovative power of the company. With production locations in China, GF Automotive is counting on the growing significance of Asian markets.
This multitude of foundries combines the advantages of local production with a cross-locational production flexibility that ensures reliability of supply. The goal of the company is to increase its permeation per vehicle in the future and to continue to provide competitive structures and processes. We are dedicated to continuously increasing our competence in lightweight construction and to opening and expanding new markets in Asia and Eastern Europe. The foundry industry continues to develop—and GF Automotive is shaping its future.
