HANOVER, Germany—ContiTech A.G. is undergoing a multi-million-dollar restructuring to align the business with the ongoing transformation within the automotive industry.
The restructuring will mainly focus on the company's automotive fluid management products and will amount to "a low three-digit million-euro" figure, said Continental A.G.'s chief financial officer Katja Durrfeld in an Aug. 9 conference call.
Once fully implemented, in steady state, annual gross savings will amount to about $24.9 million per annum starting 2026, she added.
As part of the restructuring, ContiTech will adjust the setup of all German sites in the mobile fluid systems to align with the changing requirements of the automotive and commercial vehicle markets.
With the increase in battery electronic vehicles, for instance, ContiTech will focus on "promising solutions" for hose components and complex line systems for thermal management.
