There are only a few car parts manufacturers that can track their heritage for 250 years like GKN. Until the origins of its roots, when in 1759, Wales steel factory was established in Dowlais. In the early 1900’s, Tom Guest came up with the idea of aligning his managed business with Arthur Keen, a nailing and bolt specialist, and Nettlefolds, a global thread manufacturer – so GKN was born on this name (the first letters of the surnames).
GKN is the leader in automotive transmission systems and components manufacturing, designing for the original equipment vehicle manufacturers all around the world. The company has over 160 manufacturing buildings, service centers and representative offices in more than 30 countries.
In the original automotive industry, GKN Driveline is a strong industrial leader in driveshaft systems that supplies not only new technologies but also the highest level of service worldwide.
