Profile

HISTORY

The 70s were the years of freedom. There was a boom in creativity and the desire to progress in all areas. In 1973, in Bruzolo in Susa Valley, a few kilometres from Turin, Gestind S.p.A was founded.
Since the day it got its first car, Gestind has dealt almost exclusively in automotive components.
Over the years, its staff of engineers has specialised in the development, engineering and production of headrests ,bezels and armrest and connected sub-components for the automotive sector. Gestind thus begun its solitary journey lasting nearly a decade, until, fortunately for the Turin-based company, car design evolves and changes in the 80s.
Headrests and armrests become building blocks for all cars and the company opens its doors to Toscana Gomma (an Italian rubber company), which becomes the majority shareholder. The two companies begin a long journey of growth by opening another factory in Poland in 2000. Through a joint venture with a foreign group, the company expands its roots abroad until 2009, when Toscana Gomma becomes sole owner of Gestind.
