Pierer Mobility moves GASGAS to new production plant in Spain
Pierer Mobility Group, owners of GASGAS, KTM and Husqvarna brands, has built a new “production, R&D, purchasing, customer service and sports activities” facility in Spain – it’s first 100% subsidiary outside of Austria and a split from the former GASGAS factory in Salt.
Following the integration of GASGAS alongside the KTM and Husqvarna Motorcycles and eBikes under the Pierer Mobility Group, the company's board of directors has decided to build a new, state-of-the-art production plant in Terrassa, Catalonia.
Spain, and Catalonia in particular, have a strong tradition in motorcycle manufacturing and off-road sport in particular. The region has an extensive professional manufacturing network which makes it the ideal location for this first 100% subsidiary European manufacturing plant of the Pierer Mobility group located outside Austria.
Split from former GASGAS factory (and Torrot) in Salt
The new plant will house the brand's production, R&D, purchasing, customer service and sports activities and, in part at least, replaces the previous factory location for the trials bike range from the old Salt factory.
The Generalitat de Catalunya has been an active part in the entire process, ensuring its financial and institutional support, as part of its reindustrialization plan for Catalonia.
Pierer Mobility say it show their commitment to Catalonia and Spain and that new jobs are being created and strengthening the network in the region.
The first products to be manufactured at the new plant will be the full range of GASGAS trial motorcycles, with a production capacity of up to 5,000 units per year, with production scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2022.
