Continental has added production-, sales- and technical competencies for its customers in North and South America to the map with the new state-of-the-art facility. “Together with our existing sites in the region, we now have an excellent setup to serve our customer base with superior mobile fluid handling solutions,” said Stefan Hoheisel, Head of the Air Induction Systems segment of ContiTech Mobile Fluid Systems, during the opening ceremony in San Luis Potosí.

“As a corporation, we have grown to be an important employer here,” said Hoheisel. “We are happy to open another chapter of high-end technology for the automotive industry.” By the end of 2017, Continental will employ around 160 new co-workers in the new plant in San Luis Potosí. Due to expected further growth, this number is likely to increase to 220 employees during 2018.

The innovative air induction systems, which Continental is manufacturing in San Luis Potosí for the local markets in North and South America, will increase turbocharged vehicles’ engine efficiency, reduce fuel consumption and support efforts to create a better environment through less emissions. “With our fully automated 3D blow molding production, we do not only guarantee high efficiency but we can also sustain a superior quality level,” said Andreas Heinze, plant manager of the new facility in San Luis Potosí.

“Our state-of-the-art assembly are designed by the latest ergonomic standards to offer a comfortable work environment for our employees,” added Heinze. “This new plant with its air induction systems production will strengthen our market position as the world’s largest manufacturer of line systems for turbochargers”.
