Continental Opens New Headquarters
Continental Tire North America celebrated the grand opening of its new North American headquarters in South Carolina. CTNA held a special ceremony yesterday, attended by community leaders, customers and employees, to open the $11 million, 75,000-square-foot facility in Lancaster County, South Carolina.
The company had been based in Charlotte, North Carolina, adjacent to its now-closed passenger tire plant there. CEO Matthias Schoenberg was joined by Fred Thomas, Lancaster County council member, to cut the ceremonial ribbon.
“This move to South Carolina is just the next step in our ongoing effort to contribute to the North and South American markets,” said Schoenberg. “We are grateful to South Carolina for helping us develop this beautiful new headquarters. The Lancaster County Economic Development Corporation and the State of South Carolina were instrumental in the decision to move our headquarters. We appreciate their efforts on our behalf, and we look forward to a long and successful future in South Carolina.” (Tire Review/Akron)
