On Friday 31st October, the conclusions of the survey of Gestamp’s economic impact on the Spanish economy were presented during the proceedings of the (Ass’n of Business Progress) APD National Conference of Business Executives, held under the theme of ‘Reindustrialising to win’. The survey was undertaken by B+I Strategy with the support of Deusto Business School.
In 2013 Gestamp placed orders with Spanish suppliers totalling €893 million. Having its headquarters and decision centre in Spain allows Gestamp to contribute to the country’s economic development, the impact of which on Spain’s GDP has been assessed at €1.9 billion.
Increasingly, companies are carrying out this type of survey in order to quantify their impact on job and wealth creation in a given region.
