Well developed manufacturing facilities

Gaviota operates 7 automated aluminium die casts in Alicante, one of the largest coating units in Europe that can produce profiles of up to 7 meters in length, plastic injection machines and a mould workshop and matrices.

Growth strategy devised according to where it is operating

In Europe, Gaviota Simbac sells components and accessories. In South America, the company has adapted its strategy due to the lack of established operators and therefore sells assembled and semi-finished products ready to be installed.
