The company that became GKN was forged in the first fires of theIndustrial Revolution. And through the two-and-a-half centuries ofits remarkable life, GKN has proved a master of IndustrialEvolution. From a single blast furnace fuelling a tiny iron workson a remote Welsh hillside, GKN was built by a group of men -and one woman - into a world leader. Not just once or twice,but many times, it has changed shape and direction to hold itsplace at the forefront of the engineering industry.
When iron gave birth to the worldwide railway boom in the early1800s, GKN was there. It was among the first to seize theopportunities created when steel superseded iron in the 1860s.After the First World War, GKN moved into the 20thcentury's greatest new industry - automotive. Late inthe century, when aerospace began to be transformed by the use ofnew materials, GKN was at the leading edge.

Geographically too, the company has evolved. As the balance ofeconomic growth has shifted, from Britain in the eighteenth andearly nineteenth centuries to America, continental Western Europeand Japan in the 20th and on to the emerging powers ofAsia, Latin America and Eastern Europe in the 21stcentury, the group has moved with it and frequently ahead of it.Today, the businesses that comprise GKN reach from the US to theeastern shores of Japan, from northern China and India to SouthAfrica, Latin America and Australia. GKN is a truly globalcorporate citizen.

This is its remarkable story.
