Our heritage

The company that became GKN was forged in the first fires of the Industrial Revolution. And through the two-and-a-half centuries of its remarkable life, GKN has proved a master of Industrial Evolution.

From a single blast furnace fuelling a tiny iron works on a Welsh hillside, GKN was built by a group of men – and women – into a world leader. Not just once or twice, but many times, it changed shape and direction to hold its place at the forefront of the engineering industry. Find out more about our heritage
