We aim to create long-term and sustainable shareholder value in the form of steadily growing earnings and dividends through the delivery of sustained growth in sales, profitability and cash generation.
We have excellent positions in long-term global growth markets: automotive, aerospace and land systems, and we build strong relationships with global original equipment manufacturers and prime contractors. We aim to create value and achieve growth that is greater than the growth of the markets in which we operate, through four strategic priorities:
Leading in our chosen markets
We aim to lead in our chosen markets through innovation, enhanced customer service and delivery, and scale to create a strong business with significant opportunities for growth, both organically and through value-enhancing strategic acquisitions.
Leveraging a strong global presence
GKN is an international business with a global footprint from which we serve our customer base. By continually developing our geographic spread we aim to expand into growing markets and build long-lasting and mutually beneficial customer relationships that increase our market share.
Differentiating ourselves through technology
GKN delivers innovative technologies that help our customers stay ahead in their markets and help us maintain our competitive edge, ensuring we can remain in higher value markets. We work with our customers to develop new technology, driven by global trends such as the low-carbon agenda, electrification, urbanisation and population growth.
Driving operational excellence
We aim to operate in a sustainable, ethical, efficient and safe manner. We have a strong culture of operational excellence, based on innovative engineering and Lean manufacturing skills. Through continuous improvement processes, we focus on delivering exceptional quality and customer service. At the same time, we aim to be an employer of choice with a high-performance culture, motivated people and outstanding leaders. Our goal is to have a positive impact on the environment and communities in which we operate.
