GF Automotive, a division of GF, has received a major global order for passenger cars·structural parts from a well-known European car manufacturer.

The contract amounts to EUR84m (US$92.987m). The components will be simultaneously produced in Europe, China and the US from 2018.

The order is for suspension strut domes which will be manufactured by aluminium pressure die casting in Altenmarkt (Austria), in Suzhou (China) and at the future facility of the GF Linamar joint venture in Henderson county (North Carolina, US).

GF Automotive has been awarded the contract for global production thanks to its lightweight expertise. The cast suspension strut domes replace conventional sheet metal welded constructions resulting in a significant weight reduction.
