2019 was full of magical moments. With this in mind, we believe 2020 will be a year of opportunities. Gaviota tells the story of a continuous ambition that balances its family roots with its innovative calling.
Innovation and technological leadership are important qualities of all our products; as such, we continue to develop every line each year. This year, we had the pleasure to present three new products: M1 Arko, Igloo and Hera.
In May we ran Gaviota's 1st International Photography Competition. Hundreds of people from all over the world participated. We are already considering a second edition. The winner of the 1st edition was Dimitris Velekis, with his photo “Outlet Larissa”. He enjoyed an unforgettable MotoGP season closing weekend with the Angel Nieto Team.
Gaviota continues to grow. Gaviota Showroom is a small step forward, a new community where we will soon share your Gaviota solar protection systems. In the video, ARES Model [Retractable Arms], Technician: Pop Up Store GRUPO GP, Client: crocks, Location: Elche and Santa Pola, Spain, Year: 2019.
Our logistics facility is now fully operational. Since September 2, we have a 16,000 sq. m. space with the most advanced technology. It is dedicated to satisfying our clients' needs directly from Spain to all our international branches, in 18 different countries. We continue to grow at your side.
In 2019, Albert Arenas and the Gaviota Ángel Nieto Team returned to the top of the podium thanks to an incredible victory that included a breath-taking passing on the last curve of the circuit. After starting third, the Spanish pilot was at the head of the race at all times. He looked comfortable racing on his KTM against World champions such as Lorenzo Dalla Porta, Arón Canet and Tony Arbolino. Arenas crossed the final line in first place and managed to snatch his third victory in the Championship.
Fitting with our expansion plan, we firmly believe in digitalisation and respecting our environment. For this reason, we have grown digitally with new Gaviota Italy and Gaviota France portals. There we continue to apply the QR code system on all our products, saving, each year, the equivalent to 5 full paper trailers.
