Schaffhausen, Switzerland (pta009/06.10.2017/10:00) - GF Linamar, a joint venture between GF Automotive and diversified manufacturing expert Linamar, celebrated its official opening yesterday in Mills River (North Carolina, USA). Over 300 guests attended the inauguration of its first production facility.

With the official ribbon cutting Carlos Vasto, General Manager of the new facility, and his honored guests Linda Hasenfratz, CEO of Linamar, Jim Jarrell, President & COO of Linamar, as well as Josef Edbauer, President of GF Automotive, set an important milestone for the joint venture.
