Gestamp, the manufacturer of car components, obtained 39% more profit in the first half of 2023 compared to the same period of the previous year. It posted record profits with 162 million thanks to its organic growth, strategic projects and collaboration with Gescrap.

As reported on Tuesday by Gestamp to the National Securities Market Commission (CNMV) -and reported by Efe-, its revenues also reached a record figure of 6,273 million, which will grow after 29%, driven by the good behavior registered in the first quarter of the year, which allows the company to widely exceed the market average.

The company’s growth has not been affected by the increase in financial costs as a result of negative exchange differences, the increase in interest rates and extraordinary costs derived from the recent refinancing carried out.

“The results of the first semester have the trend of 2022, reaching record figures that are the result of our geographic diversification strategy, developing highly innovative solutions for our clients and positioning ourselves to lead the electrification of mobility that will mark the future of the automotive sector”, explained the executive president of Gestamp, Francisco J. Riberas.
