Continental celebrated 25 years of world-class production in Morganton
“The Morganton facility is a prime example of Continental’s dedication to investing in the local communities and expanding capabilities within North America.” said Samir Salman, CEO of Continental, North America. “Since its opening 25 years ago, the facility has served as a pioneer manufacturer of braking systems and will continue that tradition with this latest expansion.”
Along with increasing production floor, warehouse and auxiliary space, the expansion will support and increase production for OEM customers by enhancing manufacturing and engineering, quality control, logistics, maintenance, material handling and assembly capabilities. Once the expansion is complete, the facility will be able to produce up to 3.2 million brake system units a year, which includes Continental's next generation MK C1.
“Everyone with the City is thrilled to see the Morganton facility come together,” said City of Morganton Mayor, Ronnie Thompson. “City staff members have worked alongside Continental to provide support as they announced their plans and now begin to implement them. We are happy to see them grow in Morganton.”
