GMB has been focused on staying ahead of its competition for eight decades

The automotive industry is one of the most competitive sectors in the world, with companies constantly looking for ways to stand out from the competition.
One company that believes it has been able to do just that is GMB, a leading supplier of automotive parts and systems.
Founded in 1943 as a bearing manufacturer, GMB has evolved over the years to become a supplier of high-quality automotive products.
After starting out with quality bearings, it continued its growth by developing GMB universal joints.
In 1977, GMB also acquired a major European propeller shaft manufacturer, which increased its presence globally.
Today, GMB produces a range of products, including wheel bearings, universal joints, complete hub assemblies, water pumps, fan clutches, suspension components, tensioner and idler bearings, complete timing kits, drive belts and electric water pumps.
The company says that it continues to grow its product range and categories with new developments including ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) along with multiple other programs, which will be launched soon.
GMB Chief Executive Officer, Steve Hampson, says the company has always been dedicated to quality, and that its products are made to meet or exceed industry standards.
“We have a team of highly dedicated engineers across the globe who constantly work to improve our products, and we use the latest technology in manufacturing processes to ensure the highest quality products are produced,” he says.
“Our state-of-the-art facilities include multiple R&D centres, which enable us to remain at the forefront of automotive engineering and innovation.”

Steve explains that with GMB’s global presence and commitment to over 25 OEM partners
and thousands of aftermarket customers, he believes the company’s competitive advantage lies in its commitment to innovation, research and service.
“Our focus on research and development has allowed us to stay ahead of the curve,” he says.
“Behind the success of the GMB brand, more than 3,000 highly dedicated team members across the globe continue to build GMB, and our reputation for quality and service to our customers is our absolute commitment.”
“Millions of vehicles around the globe rely on GMB parts every day and our reputation has been built on mechanics knowing the importance of fitting quality parts.”
“In addition to our role as a manufacturer, we will continue to invest heavily in new product development and research.”
“The automotive industry is rapidly changing due to new vehicle technologies and GMB continues to grow with the trend.”
“We understand that the automotive industry is constantly evolving, and we are always looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve.”
“We see technology as an opportunity to create new products and services that will help us better serve our customers.”
According to Steve, GMB’s commitment to customer satisfaction is another key strategy that has helped GMB stand out.
“We understand the importance of staying competitive, and we are committed to providing the best value,” he says.
“Our team of experts is always available to answer any questions and to provide the best support to our customers.”
“Like our dedicated team members, we see our customers as part of our GMB family. Our motto ‘Your success is our future’ is as true today as it ever was.”
GMB has a strong portfolio of patents, which Steve says has been instrumental in developing cutting edge products and expanding into new markets.
“Our commitment to excellence is reflected in everything we do, and we will continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in the automotive industry,” he says.
“From the design and engineering of our products to their manufacturing and distribution, GMB’s focus on excellence is evident at every stage of the process.”
“Our rigorous quality control measures ensure our products meet the highest standards of performance and reliability, while our customer service and support programs ensure customers receive the highest level of support and assistance.”

Steve explains that the one big decision that made GMB what it is today was its dedication to focusing on the production of high-quality automotive parts and systems.
“This decision allowed GMB to exist in the highly competitive automotive industry and we have built an enviable reputation for quality that has helped the company to grow and expand significantly over the years,” he says.
“By consistently delivering innovative, high-quality products, GMB has become a trusted supplier to the biggest names in the automotive industry around the globe.”
“Additionally, GMB’s commitment to customer satisfaction has helped to build a loyal customer base that trusts our GMB brand.”
Like most companies in today’s climate, GMB is faced with increasing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly products.
Steve believes the company’s commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility has positioned it to meet these challenges head-on.
“We have implemented a range of measures to reduce our environmental impact, such as energy efficient manufacturing processes and the use of sustainable materials,” he says.
