TIMISOARA, Romania (Nov. 30, 2009)—Continental A.G. plans to add a first-stage mixing unit to its passenger and light truck tires plant in Timisoara.
The investment will allow the company to have a completely integrated production unit, which will consolidate the tire business in Romania and increase the cost competitiveness of the plant.
The project will create about 200 jobs, Conti said.
The plant in Timisoara produces 40,000 passenger car tires per day. The expansion program will improve the technological flow and will ensure complete autonomy to the plant, Conti said.
