G-TEKT is a specialist in auto body components. Combining our technical prowess and advanced technologies, we are able to work with a wide range of materials to deliver high-quality, light, yet durable products to automakers around the world. We are making a difference when it comes to safer, more environmentally friendly vehicles.
Latest Vehicle Trends
—Growing Demand for Lighter Components—
The need for safety, comfort, and environmental performance will only increase going forward.
Vehicle emission regulations will continue to get stricter.
Engine improvements and electric vehicle by themselves will make it difficult to be 100% compliant.
We believe the key will be reducing the weight of auto body components because these parts make up about 30% of the total weight of the latest vehicle models.
However, conventional technologies have reached a limit for reducing the weight of steel materials.
It is imperative that new weight-reducing technologies be found that use the new materials that are replacing steel.
As a result, the auto industry requires innovative technical developments that produce the auto body components required in the coming years that are light, yet tremendously strong.

—Advanced technical development using automobile “strip down” techniques—
We analyze the advanced technologies used in the latest vehicle models to develop technologies that are even more effective at reducing weight while maintaining strength.
