[ 02 Company ]
GAVIOTA Gaviota is a global leading company in the industry of smart awning and rolling shutter systems and accessories. Our sun protection systems are based on innovative, safe, cost-effective and sustainable solutions, developed by a qualified team of... over 300 people who are united by effort, research, and commitment to the customer, as well as by the latest technological advances.
We are driven by sustainability and environmental commitment because we know that Sun Protection means energy saving, compliance with the Kyoto Protocol and greater quality of life. This commitment is reinforced with other basic behaviours that our organisation makes its own: sense of anticipation, in order to foresee and create future trends; talent and creativity, promoted and retained in the team; respect to timeliness and customer needs, and the continuous search for alliances with other companies to develop and enrich both local and global markets.
Gaviota’s philosophy differentiates us, as do our figures: a production workshop with more than 1,000 moulds and dies currently running on the machines, 10 million meters of tube and 70 million metallic parts per year stamped and finished, 20 injection machines producing 200,000 pieces per day, 7 robotic production units of aluminium casting that produce over 400,000 pieces per month, and one of the largest lacquering facilities in Europe that paints more than 30,000 pieces per day and can undertake profiles up to 7 meters long.

Ángel Nieto Team (formerly Team Aspar), Spanish team of the World Championship of Motorcycling born in 1992 and directed by the former driver and four times world champion, Jorge Martínez Aspar. At the end of 2017 the name of the team was changed in honor of Ángel Nieto, a Spanish motorcycling champion.

Alvaro Bautista

“I am happy to be returning to what was my home for many years in the World Championship, where I enjoyed my best results,” said Bautista at the time. “Over the years I have grown a lot and I have much more experience now.” Of course he had: during 2017 he came close to reach a podium position when he finished fourth the Argentina GP and was fifth at the Italian GP. He is right now in front of a new challenge, with the Ducati GP17 that Andrea Dovizioso took to the runner-up position last year in the World Championship.


Karel Abraham

“I am delighted to be able to return to MotoGP. It means getting back on a Ducati, my favourite bike, which I rode during my first season in MotoGP. That was the best bike I have ever ridden. It is an honour to become part of such a professional team and I think that along with Ducati we can make a good connection” explained the Czech rider at the end of 2016, when his switch to the Aspar Team for 2017 was announced. It was a year in which he could show his value: a second position in the Argentina GP grid and a seventh in the Dutch GP, equalling his best MotoGP result.


Andrea Migno

“I think this will be a good opportunity for me, it's a great team and I'll be riding a KTM, which will be at a good level. We have every chance to fight for great things,” says Migno, who knows he is coming to an experienced team with a track record of great success. “Pecco Bagnaia has always spoken very well of the team, I am confident and calm because I know that in the past they have won races and titles”, he added at the news of his signing. “I am not setting any objectives right now, I will just try to have good races and be at the front. After a few rounds we will be able to set our targets.”


Albert Arenas

He had a new challenge in front of him, a full season in 2017 as he stepped up to become a full-time Grand Prix rider with the Aspar Team and a Mahindra that didn’t allow him to show his full potential. He achieved an eighth position at the San Marino GP, his best result in 2017, and is looking forward to get his hands on his 2018 brand new KTM. /p>
