Magna International

Competition from the Magna International Group, a Canadian company specialising in automotive equipment and a subcontractor to many manufacturers, should also be considered. This company, based in Aurora, a suburb of Toronto, currently employs 107,100 people and distributes its products in 26 different countries.

Lyons Tool & Die Company

The major partners of Gestamp Automocion

After a complete overview of the main competitors that the Gestamp Automocion group has to face on the market, we are going to look at the main alliances that this company has been able to put in place over the last few years. Indeed, this type of rapprochement and the strategic partnerships signed by this company are not without effect on its growth and therefore on its share price.


This includes the merger between Gestamp Automocion and the rival ThyssenKrupp group in 2011. Gestamp signed an agreement with this competitor to take over its Metal Forming division. In France, this includes Sofedit's stamping and forming plants, which are mainly located in the Orne, Nord, Seine Maritime and Loiret regions. In total, these sites employ more than 1,500 people, most of whom work at the Orne site. However, the takeover was not necessarily a foregone conclusion, since other companies, including the Chinese steel group Shouhang Steel, had also made an offer to ThyssenKrupp to acquire these activities. The European political leaders and the principals were finally opposed to this Chinese proposal, in view of the sensitivity of certain technologies, and it was the Spanish equipment manufacturer that came first. The unions felt that this takeover presented a major social risk, but in the end, an agreement was reached between the two parties. It was indeed essential for ThyssenKrupp to find a buyer for these activities which were threatened, notably because of transfers of production to other competing factories such as the Renault factory. It should also be noted that the Centre region of France had already suffered greatly from the restructuring undertaken by Sofedit since 2008, which had led to the closure of the Vendôme and Amilly plants. In 2010, Gestamp Automocion had already inaugurated a production site in Haute Saône that would satisfy its ambitions and those of its main client, PSA Peugeot Citroën. At the time, the group had four other sites in Ile de France, Rhône Alpes and Lorraine. Following this announcement, it will however be necessary to wait a few months and the end of 2011 for the discussions between the two groups to lead to a signature. Of course, this is just one example of a merger that has had a direct impact on Gestamp Automacion's share price, since the company actually has many more partners than that. In fact, thanks to its hundred or so production plants, the group designs and supplies automotive parts, bodywork, chassis and mechanisms to many manufacturers in this sector. Among the major allies of Gestamp Automacion that rely on it as a subcontractor are, for example, the manufacturers Volkswagen, Renault-Nissan, PSA, General Motors, Ford and Daimler.
